Growing up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Natalie Layne was constantly surrounded by music. Her family instilled in her a love of music from a young age as she watched her mom sing and lead worship, and her dad play bass and trombone. They knew from the beginning that Natalie had “a song in her heart.” Natalie’s grandma was her first piano teacher, introducing topics such as songwriting, reading music, and improvisation. She began to love classical and jazz music as well as popular song styles.
Natalie began leading worship at the age of 12 and spent much of her time at church. She learned to lead worship and write her own songs from several worship pastors, including Cory Asbury, Jon Egan, and Jared Anderson. By the age of 14, she was leading teams of musicians at New Life Church, serving in their children and youth ministries. In high school and college, Natalie has traveled to other churches across America leading worship and sharing her original songs.
Currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee, Natalie continues to write, produce, and release her own music. She continues to lead worship at Ethos Church, and is completing her degree in Commercial Music. She describes her sound as “CCM, always with a hint of R&B.” Her EP, Where Soul Meets the Sound, combines several musical genres to create her unique musical style. After releasing singles “Burn Every Ship,” “Gracious,” and “You,” Natalie began creating full album Be Human that released on July 3rd, 2020.
