About Natalie Gelman

When you hire Natalie Gelman to perform for your wedding or special event you're not just hiring a musician but a world-class entertainer. As a successful independent artist, Natalie has toured throughout the US, Europe and Scandinavia.

Well known as a folk-pop singer/songwriter, Natalie sings and plays the guitar, ukulele and occasionally piano - comparable to Colbie Caillat, Sheryl Crow and Brandi Carlile. Her most recent album was released with sought after industry producers Charlie Midnight (James Brown, Joni Mitchell) and Mark Needham (The Killers, Fleetwood Mac).

Natalie brings that something extra to your birthday, anniversary, holiday party and special wedding moments - she LOVES working with brides and grooms to choose the perfect music for their ceremony, cocktail hour, first dance and reception. Often learning songs especially for the event!

Besides solo performances, a duo and full band is also available.

One of Natalie's other specialties is writing custom songs to celebrate your special day and event! Natalie works with you to learn about how you met and feel in love and writes a song telling your love story. This is a great gift to give each other! You also get an acoustic recording which is a really special keepsake! Done before the wedding the personal song can be a nice addition to your website, save the date or invitation!

    Natalie is incredible. She played at our wedding in October 2017 and it was wonderful. She played a wide variety of songs and did an exceptional job with the ones we requested. Many of our guests expressed that they loved her music and her stage presence. She is an amazing person to work with and has helpful suggestions on making her music fit your special day. My husband and I both highly recommend Natalie for any music event. Five stars all the way.

    Natalie is amazing! She is not only incredibly talented, but also extremely flexible and accommodating. She spent a lot of time back and forth with me to arrange the music just perfectly, and helped guide me with some great ideas that truly made our day magical. She is wonderful and I could not be more happy that she was part of our big day!

    Natalie provided my women’s sailing club with an evening of wonderful entertainment, including leading us in a sing along and adding comical boating-related lyrics to familiar tunes. My group members were delighted with her lovely voice and charming personality.
    Also impressive is Natalie’s business manner. She was extremely professional in all aspects of our transaction. I especially appreciate her great follow-through on emails and phone calls.. I highly recommend Natalie. She’s terrific!

    As a wedding officiant in Santa Barbara, I work with many fantastic musicians. But I am especially impressed with how unique Natalie is. She is so fresh and sweet and enthusiastic. She pours her heart into her music and is up for anything. I like to add bits of music within a ceremony...like a little strumming during a blessing. All I had to do at a recent wedding was ask Natalie to listen for a small cue during the ceremony, and she added a sensitive tiny piece that was not even expected by the bride and groom. They loved it, and so did their guests. One more thing to add: she can sing! Rarely do we hear singing at a wedding these days, but if you want something extra special, ask her to sing. She's amazing! My best wishes for a wonderful ceremony, Patrice Handley SANTA BARBARA CLASSIC WEDDINGS
