Artists have a range of strengths and “areas of exploration” when it comes to videos. Not Natalie Roth. She started singing at the age of 3, and worked in films from there on, including some with Lee Marvin and Raquel Welch. Roth is a natural in videos, and the results are interesting to watch. Add the songs, and you have a virtual production company writing its own songs.
This particular Los Angeles music artist, unlike many, obviously has her own ideas. Roth creates videos which are quite different. Consider the usual music video, then consider a ballad-like, tough call video about a child faced with parental separation called Daddy. Not exactly the same thing. It’s worth mentioning that real artists don’t follow the herd, and Roth, to her credit, certainly doesn’t.
Her songs are a pretty eclectic mix of modern music and Israeli music, following both her generation and her cultural heritage. The results are quite unpredictable. She can put together a good pop hook, too, among the other music. You’ll see Daddy followed by songs like Abandoned, Rent Free, and others. She’s no one trick wonder with her songwriting, obviously, and even does a bit of social comment in Israel, A Song for Peace.
In terms of her musical career, Roth is at that intriguing primary building stage in her career when songwriters tend to really hit their stride and create top quality songs. Add the video production strengths, and you have a multimedia artist with a lot of skills and ideas to work with. The future of this artist is going to be worth watching.
If you’re a new music fan, take the time to check out Roth’s current portfolio of music on her website here at www.natalieroth.net. Try to piece together the bio and the music. This is a really interesting aesthetic mix, and if you know what a really individual female artist can do, you’ll find Roth a real work in progress as she evolves her sound and style.
