Nathalie King (formerly known as Nathalie Kraemer) is an accomplished German artist based in Toronto, Ontario. King's music has been noted for its cinematic pop style; a signature blend of pop beats wreathed in a film score sound that expresses tragic themes like lost love, regret and abuse as well as socio-critical topics. Her lower range is hypnotic and sultry; her upper range soft and melodic. Important musical influences in her early teens were stars such as Elvis, Julie Andrews and Tina Turner. The artist, who has German, French and Vietnamese roots, has been writing songs as a therapeutic means to deal with depression throughout her life. King is an award-winning singer, who has experience in radio guest host appearances. She released her first studio album, Odyssey, in 2013 and has since released a few singles, notably “Break Away” which landed a placement in the latest S’well water bottle commercial, and ‘Ghost Rider’ getting a licensing deal on the Feeform TV show “The Fosters”. King has appeared regularly as a jazz singer on the Toronto music scene, and with more than 200 shows under her belt, is now focusing on performing her original music. Graduating with a B.A. (Hons) degree in film and animation, the artist produced and hand animated her latest music video to ‘Suckr for Love’, which is being officially selected at international film festivals including the Berlin Music Video Awards. As well as doing vocal freelance work and collaborations, she is currently working on another single and a couple of collaboration projects including soundtrack work for a U.S. indie movie and a German indie video game.
