"She returns with "Bluezzin t`il Dawn" – a mature album, featuring moody, atmospheric music. She is accompanied by a band of excellent jazzmen, who co-create the intriguing dramatic stracture. A very well made album which carries the listeners away."

About the album

MYRIAD IS THE BLUEZZ, AS IS THE BLAZZ.
COMING FROM THE FOUR CORNERS OF THE EARTH AND SETTLING AT THE CORE OF HUMAN EMOTION.
RAGE, JOY, SADNESS, AND TRIUMPH…
ALL HAVE THEIR PLACE IN BLUEZZIN T’ILL DAWN:
WE ARE BUT TRACES IN THE SAND, WITH PAINS IN OUR HEARTS, NOT WANTING EXPLANATIONS,
BUT RATHER,
THE MEMORY OF AN INSATIABLE LOVE, TAINTED ONLY BY A LITTLE BIT OF RAIN.

THIS ALBUM GOES BEYOND MUSICAL GENRE, ALTHOUGH THE BLUEZZ, (BLUES/JAZZ),
UNDOUBTEDLY ENGRAVES IT’S FOOTPRINTS ON THAT WINDING MELODIC ROAD GOING NOWHERE T’ILL DAWN…

YES, THIS ALBUM GOES MUCH FURTHER AND IS MUCH MORE THAN THAT…

IT’S A VIBRATION, IT’S A RESONANCE, IT’S A STORY
THAT CAN BE FOUND IN EVERY BEATING BLEEDING HEART*

NATALIA M. KING
Nur mit ihrer Gitarre und einem Rucksack kam die New Yorkerin Natalia M. King nach Paris, eine Stadt des Lichts für sie und für ihre Stimme. Hier konnte sie ihre Musik in Bars und Metrostationen frei weiterentwickeln, von Rock über afrikanische Weltmusik bis hin zum Soul. Das Ergebnis ihrer musikalischen Reise ist eine Mischung aus ehrlichem Blues und nostalgischem Jazz mit einer Prise Soul, die sie selbst 'Bluezz' nennt.

'BlueZzin T’il Dawn' ist das zweite Studio-Album von Natalia M. King, jedoch das erste, das sie für Challenge Records vorlegt. Es handelt von der Vielfalt menschlicher Emotionen. Von Wut, Freude, Trauer und Triumph: 'Wir hinterlassen alle Spuren im Sand mit Schmerzen in unseren Herzen und wollen keine Erklärungen dafür.', sagt die Künstlerin, 'Was wir wirklich wollen, ist die Erinnerung an nimmersatte Liebe, die ein wenig vom Regen gefärbt wird. Dieses Album ist Vibration, es ist ein Echo, ja eine Geschichte. Eine Geschichte, die in jedem schlagenden und doch blutenden Herzen steckt.'

The year is 1969 and the music world is in a frenzy. Otis Redding tells us it's groovin time, Jim Morrison demands to be touched, BB King laments that the thrill is gone, and while Janis Joplin encourages him to try a little bit harder, Crosby Stills and Nash have boarded the Marrakesh Express.

It is at this very moment that Natalia M King decides to be born. Because Natalia is the kind of woman who decides - her life the colour of her music, and the backdrop of her melodies.

Gone are the childhood days where she meandered the sidewalks of Brooklyn. Music suddenly emerges as an inescapable truth, one which spins invisible threads between the soul and the heart. Natalia sings for life...

With a guitar in hand, and a backpack on her back, she sets off for Paris, which would be the city of light to a voice, her voice. There, a diamond in the rough, she would sing in bars and the métro, surrounded by dumbstruck passers-by who can’t believe their ears.

Inevitably, her first album was fittingly called Milagro. Indeed, it is a miraculous balance between folk and rock, between Africa and America, between gentleness and rage. Onstage? Fire.

Two other albums, fury and sound and flesh is speaking, followed, both of which clear a path far from effortlessness, filled with demanding music, on edge, calibrated for nothing, yet made for us.

But one day, Natalia disappears. She has made up her mind. She cuts loose, stops everything, returns to her homeland, and loses herself. Seven years of silence ensue, an eternity during which she hits rock bottom, all the better to ascend again into the light.

Finally, she is reborn, like going home. Natalia takes another path, her very own – a straight line with roots extending from each footstep. Is it blues? Jazz? Soul? Yes, it’s all these and more. It’s SOULBLAZz! A showcase for the jewel that is her voice, soothed and serene. On stage, at her side is a group of soul blood brothers with whom she gives luminous concerts. Each note played, pure joy.

It is against this backdrop and imbued with such a spirit that Natalia’s second album since her rebirth, BLUEZzin T'il DAWN, has taken shape. After blues-tinted jazz, her focus here is on jazz-flavoured blues. This is the sound of an artist at her peak.

Never before has her singing been as pure. Natalia does not reinvent this music. She is this music. Yet even now, as in the past, there’s still one thing Natalia M. King does not know how to do, and that’s cheat.

A unique artist. On her path.

She is a fascinating singer, with a strong jazz leaning, and supported here by a terrific backing band with some well structured solos.
In a Blue Mood, 29-3-2017

(...) Natalia M. King dances happily back and forth over the line that separates jazz from the blues. (...)
CD Hotlist, 06-2-2017

“Insatiable” and “Paint It Black and Blue” are tempests in a teapot. That may be an apt description of what’s to come in the career arc of Natalia M. King. Let’s hope so; she wowed me with her grace.

AXS - USA, 20-1-2017

In a time of chockfull productions and voices which only are only going fully, is the sensebillity from Bluezzin T’il Dawn a true fare. 
Wonomagazine, 13-1-2017

Songs like Bluezzin T'il Dawn are normally not my cup of tea, but this cup of tea tastes great and I want more.
WoNo Magazine, 05-1-2017

" [...] Deserves a spot in every jazz-lovers' CD-collection."
Jazzmozaiek, 28-6-2016

" [...] A required purchase for everyone with a slightly bit of taste for music [...] "
Rootstime, 15-5-2016

" [...] the singer uses a very precise tone to express the suffering that is suggested in the lyrics. The cover version is better than the original, fragile and melancholic at the same time, and the perfect ending of Bueszzin t'il Dawn. [...] "
