Hi Everyone! Don't you just love this Annabelle flower!? It looks like a flower Afro to me. So beautiful! So we are into the mixing and mastering phase for the new album project "The Relationship Odyssey". Sharing a little a cappella snippet with you and discussing how I am not allowed in the room for mix (ha ha ha). Would love to hear from you how you are all managing in this global economic 'crisis'. Is it being hyped in the news or is this really affecting you, your family and/or people you know? Much love, Nat xo

Thank you to those who participated in the 90 Day Challenge or followed along via the Vlogs. It was a lot of fun to do this with you and I’m happy to report success on 2 out of 3 of my challenge goals! YAY
I still have my goal set to do shows/tour this year, but as I’ve been mentioning lately, I really need to get an idea of where the most clusters of people are in order to then plan the cities and do presales to ensure all the costs are covered.
I’ve been thrilled to share the process of making “The Relationship Odyssey” with you and I will let you all know when it’s available at the online digital stores such as iTunes and Amazon Mp3 to purchase.

Wow, the 90 Day Challenge is almost over! I will post my final update on June 25th, so watch out for that.
I wanted to clarify some of the questions I got from feedback to last weeks nVlog. Me talking about the live show/touring is not meant to be negative or defeatest at all. My talking to you about the reality of it is meant to give you some insight into doing shows and touring as an Independent commercial sounding artist like I am. I am very determined to do this, but of course do need whoever is interested to let me know by signing up to the mailing list (see above).
An act like me often has to be thier own promoter. This means renting the venue to do a show as well as market & promote it.
Some things that may need to be paid in advance:
Band pay deposit
Venue booking fee(s)
Security for venue (if required)
Tour Bus Rental
Tour Bus Driver fees
Gear Van Rental
Insurance (for vehicles, gear, venue and medical insurance if out of country)
While on the road:
Gas, food, lodging, per diem, gear rentals, lighting rentals, incidentals, etc…
Nat’s To Do’s B4 Shows Happen:
Build fan base & get geographical data from mailing list to see where all of you are to know where 2 route shows. Then do show ticket PRE SALES to cover up front costs. Sign up to my mailing list now so I know you are interested.
Thanks for watching my long explanation about me doing live shows. Please sign up to the mailing list so that over the next while I can get a sense of where you all are and use that to plan my next steps for live shows.
Have YOU ever had an endless tube of toothpaste? LOL
Please join my mailing list:http://www.natalie-brown.com/list.htm
This is the ONLY reliable way of me getting info to you and getting info about where you live so I can attempt to plan what cities to bring my live show to.
