Impressive Debut Single From Natalie Walker Drops June 26

6/19/2006 4:30pm EDT
No One Else' is the highly impressive debut single from Dorado signing Natalie Walker. Twenty-three-year-old Natalie Walker’s journey to recording artist has been a very determined one.

At 18, young Natalie got her first break. Replying to an online ad for a singer, she sent some demos to a Ph...

It is wonderful, this voice, and surely a discovery to treasure, but it belongs to a young woman not from somewhere musically exotic - say, Mississippi or even Manhattan - but just east of the M1: Leeds. Her name is Corinne Bailey Rae, and she was born to do this.

Inspired as much by Björk and Massive At...
