Natasha Hardy is a classical-crossover singer-songwriter from London, England. Her voice has been described as ‘angelic, haunting and ethereal’. Natasha is trained in both classical and contemporary traditions and writes her own material. Her fusion of classical and contemporary styles results in a beautiful cinematic blend of ethereal vocals with operatic, Celtic and ambient elements.
Her musical influences come from the ethereal voices of Enya and Sarah McLachlan, to the operatic voices of Renee Fleming and Angela Georgiou; film composers Hans Zimmer, Gabriel Yared and artists Enigma and Faithless.
Natasha brings a modern yet timeless twist to classical music.
Natasha’s beautiful tone and line, combined with her inspiring powerful lyrics really captivate; coupled with the interesting cinematic style arrangements, it is no surprise that Natasha has received radio support from BBC, including being featured on Classic Music, ‘Harmony Nights’ with broadcasting legend Bill Rennells’, earning the ‘Chart Breaker Song Of The Week’ from Spirit Radio Ireland for her single ‘In Too Deep’ and recently licensing her song ‘Strong’ in the award nominated movie ‘Viking Destiny’, featuring Terence Stamp; you can see Natasha is going from strength to strength.
Her self-funded and self-produced music videos have seen her build a dedicated following through her social media outlets, her ‘musical family’ as she calls them, show their global support. With her self-funded album ‘Lost in Love’ being released on her own label Peachie Recordings (a sly hint to her London home), this debut album is eagerly awaited.
Natasha Hardy’s debut Album, ‘Lost in Love’ is a collection of self-penned love songs inspired by her passions, heartaches and the fairy-tale fantasies that falling in love can bring. Natasha’s beautiful vocals seamlessly unite the contemporary/operatic divide. With the cinematic inspired arrangements comprising operatic, orchestral, Celtic and ambient elements ‘Lost in Love’ brings a new twist to the classical crossover market.
The beautiful cinematic style arrangements feature award winning violinist, Dermot Crehan, (Lord of the Rings, Narnia, London Philharmonic Orchestra) and a plethora of talented musicians. The ‘Lost in Love’ album comprises 10 tracks of pristinely produced music, produced and arranged by Tom E Morrison, and features one track produced by film composer Michael A Levine (Hunger Games, Siren). The album was funded and executive produced by Natasha herself.
The first two singles from the album, ‘In Too Deep’ and ‘Mi Ritiro’ have garnered some great feedback including ‘In Too Deep’ receiving the ‘chart breaker song of the week’ from Spirit Radio Ireland, and both songs receiving support from local, national and international radio including the BBC among others. Natasha recently struck a licensing deal for her song ‘Strong’ be used in the feature film ‘Viking Destiny’ featuring Terence Stamp.
Her debut album was released through her own label ‘Peachie Recordings’ as physical media, exclusively available on her webstore in late Fall 2018. Through the success of this soft launch and through increasing demand from her fans, Natasha is planning to release her debut album ‘Lost in Love’ this spring on all global digital platforms.

Mi Ritiro is a slow tempo Italian lyrical ballad that captures Natasha’s beautiful vocals, which seamlessly unite the contemporary/operatic divide. The self-penned song literally translated ‘I Retreat’ introduces itself with Natasha’s ethereal vocals emerging gently from the piano and glass harmonica styled intro, building into her full classical voice over the simple yet elegant cinematic orchestration reminiscent of an old Italian movie.
Of the lyrics, Natasha explains “Sometimes we can unknowingly romanticise someone and make them into a version that we want to believe; this song is about the realization of having to unravel that and return to yourself whole, ready to tell a new story”.
