Happy New Year! These inaugural weeks are always full of ambition and regardless of whether we’re actually gonna get our butts to the gym or not, we can still appreciate the rejuvenating energy in the air. In that vein, let’s start 2020 off with a quick look at New York’s Natalie Shea, who first made a name for herself as the lead vocalist of Austin rock outfit Schmillion while Shea and her bandmates were still in high school. It’d been seven years since Seven, Schmillion’s sophomore LP, and Shea had shied away from performing original material until she unexpectedly dropped her debut solo single at the tail end of 2019.
Co-written by Frankie Blue (who also performs guitar) this moody indie-leaning acoustic track makes for an earnest introduction to the internal maturity of this outward goofball, who’s already planning on more collaborations and releases in the near future. So while you keep Natalie Shea on your radar, you can continue to revisit her chops time and time again on “Keep Me Waiting”!
