Originally from Taplow in Berkshire, Natalie Long started her musical career writing, singing and playing guitar in predominantly female punk/rock band Pimblico. Her teenage years were spent playing the Reading and London circuit, with a modest signing and a very loyal following. London venues included The Garage, The Hope and Anchor and The Dublin Castle.
Pimblico spilt and Natalie went off to Southampton University to study music where she formed another predominantly girl pop/rock band, Chiquita. They played the Southampton university circuit and proved to be very popular with the student crowd.
Since leaving university, she has maintained her image as a solo performer in her own right, session singing for various bands and veering more towards the acoustic scene, performing her original songs at venues including The Rock Garden, The Sound Bar and The Spice of Life.
Going back to her rock routes and love of distorted guitar, recently finishing her debut album, she has joined forces with session musicians Neil Thom (guitar/vocals), Rob Thom (bass/vocals) and Glen Child (drums). These are new beginnings for them as a band although individually they are very accomplished at what they do, which unites them and gives them a seamless musical performance. The future beckons with exciting promise and electrifying gigs.......ROCK ON!!!!!!!
