Tell us your real names, country of birth, date of birth and childhood experience. 

My name is Natalie Migdal, I was born in Stockholm, Sweden February 20th 1990. I grew up in a musical family and music has always been a part of my life. I used to spend hours by our dusty old piano in our living room, composing short piano pieces. As I grew older I started writing lyrics as well.

Tell us about your music career, your band name, musical background, experience and skills. 

I have worked with artists like Rickie Lee Jones, And Brun, Laleh and Amanda Bergman. I’m the co-founder of Migdal Strings, a string collective based in Stockholm who have recorded strings for artists like Loreen and Peter Lemarc. Migdal Strings also appear on the soundtrack for the swedish movie success ”Gentlemen”, who won the esteemed ”Guldbagge” for best soundtrack in 2015. This fall I’m releasing three singles on my very own record label Raccoon Recordings and every single will also have a music video. 

My musical background: I’ve studied classical violin at the Royal College of music in Stockholm and jazz vocals at the jazz programme at Skurup in the south of Sweden.

Tell us about your genre, concept and idea behind your music video and the song. 

I would say that my genre sounds like a combination of my musical background. There are classical and minimalistic elements as well as grand gestures. The concept behind the three singles I’m releasing at the moment is the process of moving on, after a breakup. The songs are not about the breakup itself, but rather about what happens emotionally after the breakup has taken place.

Tell us everything that we need to know about you as a musician and the ups and downs you have faced in the music business. 

As a musician, I’ve been part of a lot of different constellations and projects, but what I love the most is creating my own music. One challenge in being a musician is being able to pay your bills.

.

Tell us about other members of your band, music producer, crew or music video director, how the song was recorded and how the music video was shot. 

For the single All The Way Home, I called the amazing pianist Filip Ekestubbe. He came by the studio one afternoon and blew our minds away. The song is recorded at a beautiful studio at heart of Stockholm. I’ve produced the song together with producers Marcus Ardai and Joakim Hultqvist. The music video shoot for this single is actually taking place just now, and it will be released november 6th! Directed by Sosi Chamoun and filmed by Richard Götze.

Tell us how long you have been in the music industry, your experience and your future goal. 

These three singles are my debut singles as an artist playing in my own name, but I’ve worked in the music industry for a long time as a freelance musician. I’ve had the pleasure of working with a lot of exciting artists and I’ve been part of various productions. My future goal is to write and record more music in my own name and to work with my string collective Migdal Strings!

Tell us what inspires you to write, compose and sing. 

I draw inspiration from my own experiences and feelings, and the feelings of those around me. Writing is part of a healing process for me, to put experiences into words.

Tell us the secret behind making a hit song. 

Hm.. Good question. I’m not sure I have the secret, but I would say that the best way to make a killer song is to create something you truly love and hope that others do too!

.

Tell us the message you will like to pass to your fans out there. 

My music is about emotions and about the process of healing after a break-up. I think it’s very important to talk to the people around you about how you’re feeling. That every emotion is okay.

Tell the kind of advice you will give to an upcoming artist. 

Give yourself time and do not be afraid to ask people for advice!

Elaborate on your music careers, albums, songs, tours, recognition or awards you might have obtained. 

My first single I’ve Run Out of Words has gotten beautiful reviews by Nordic Music Review for example. As a violinist I’ve toured with artists like Loreen and Laleh.

Tell us about your happiest day and saddest day. 

Wow that’s a really hard question to answer. I don’t really remember one day as being my happiest or saddest day. I’m much more of a period-person! I remember the first period with my current boyfriend as being one of the happiest. And one of the saddest periods when I broke contact with an important person in my life.

I would buy a beautiful summer house to share with my brother and my mother.
