Singer/Songwriter Natalie Gaza infuses powerful introspective lyrics with a unique folk/rock musical energy. Her multi-layered song structure and skilled guitar work deliver a memorable listener experience.

Natalie has played a wide variety of venues including the beautiful Memorial Opera House in Valparaiso, Indiana;  the historic Roberts Hall in Lynn Haven, Florida; the popular Acorn Theater in Three Oaks, Michigan and at the iconic House of Blues in Chicago, Illinois among others. She has opened for international recording artists including Julian Dawson and Jennifer Knapp.

The song 'Don't Change your Mind' from her release 'I'm One Too' was selected as part of the Artists Compilation Album project with HERE Magazine of Northwest Indiana. The new record was included in John King's Top 15 Albums in NWI Entertainer Magazine. Tracks from her second record ‘Constant Mercy’ were highlighted on WXRT in Chicago, on WLIP Guaranteed Raw Radio in Kenosha and on WVLP in Valparaiso. The Built to Break music video from that project continues to build a loyal YouTube following.

Natalie regularly performs solo and with band-mates from Post-Op-Trance.
She also performs and records with Northwest Indiana post-punk project 'The ThreeFiveSevens' as well as with 'Lady Stardust', an all-female Bowie tribute band. In 2021, post-covid summer, she will be working on a Lucinda Williams tribute project with local musicians near her home in Berrien County, Michigan.
