About Natalie

A modern day troubadour, Natalie has crisscrossed the country many times over and performs frequently for weddings and private events.
Singer
Ojai

When you hire Natalie Gelman to perform for your wedding or special event you’re not just hiring a musician but a world-class entertainer. As a successful independent artist, Natalie has toured throughout the US, Europe and Scandinavia. Well known as a folk-pop singer/songwriter, Natalie sings and plays the guitar, ukulele and piano - comparable to Colbie Caillat, Sara Bareilles and Brandi Carlile. Her most recent album was released with sought after industry producers Charlie Midnight (James Brown, Joni Mitchell) and Mark Needham (The Killers, Fleetwood Mac). Natalie brings that something extra to your birthday, anniversary, holiday party and special wedding moments - she LOVES working with brides and grooms to choose the perfect music for their ceremony, cocktail hour, first dance and reception. Often learning songs especially for the event! Besides solo performances, a duo and full band is also available. One of Natalie’s other specialties is writing custom songs to celebrate your special day and event! Natalie works with you to learn about how you met and feel in love and writes a song telling your love story. This is a great gift to give each other! You also get an acoustic recording which is a really special keepsake! Done before the wedding the personal song can be used for the ceremony, your first dance as husband and wife or as a nice addition to your site, save the date or invitation! "Simply Terrific" 4/4 Stars - The New York Post “Sunny and Soulful” – The Huffington Post "Natalie Gelman is the poster-girl for the solo, storytelling singer-songwriter. …this performer will likely always have a captive audience." - Music Connection Natalie has also been featured on/in The New York Times, NPR, Good Morning San Diego, FOX, ABC, NBC, New York 1, Voice of America, Music & Musicians Mag, American Songwriter, Songwriter Magazine and more.

Customer questions

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Sheryl Crow, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Sara Bareilles and others

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Opening for Bon Jovi at Golden 1 Arena for over 17,000 people!

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

Often time changes are no problem at all. Please just let me know so I can set up my music to fit your day. Often I can accommodate day of changes as well but so don't worry if things are running a little late or you need me to play a few minutes longer.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes. I usually put on a playlist between sets. If you have something you would like to use with your own favorite playlist let me know.

How much time do you need to set up?

I like you have about 60-75 minutes to set up and sound check before guests arrive so I'm not setting up while they are present but if that doesn't work for the schedule of the day I can set up while guests are there and just do a discreet line check.

Can I pick the pieces you play from the set list?

Absolutely. I would love your input on what songs you would like. It's good to keep things somewhat flexible so I can read the crowd and fill in what I think they will like best in the moment. Going based on hundreds of performances I like to give everyone something to connect with in the music.

Do you bring all the equipment you need to perform?

Yes, I bring all my own instruments and can being microphones, stands, speakers and cables. Just need access to power within about 50ft of the performance space.

Can you learn specific pieces before the event?

Yes, it depends on the package you order but I am able to learn about 3-5 songs usually.
