Winner of the 2009 LA Music Awards "Country Album of The Year", this prolific Sonoma, Calif-based singer-songwriter-guitarist was October’s “Featured Artist of the Month” on Indie 104/IRadio LA, voted “Best Internet Station” the last three consecutive years.
James’ “Tequila Time” video is currently airing on over thirty shows nationwide, and was selected “Video To Watch” by music magazine ROCKWIRED for November. Additionally, Rockwired has just announced James as a “Female Artist of the Year” Nominee for the magazine’s 2010 Rockwired Music Awards (more information regarding voting to follow).
MUSIC CONNECTION calls James “country steeped in blues and Tex-Mex with a nod to Janis Joplin and Emmy Lou Harris.” “From the Stones-y vibe of “Straight to Hell,” to the Latin vibe of the title track, “Tequila Time,” to the Allman Bros.-like slide on “Get Out Of My Way,” Natasha James delivers”(THE BOHEMIAN). “Her vocals have been compared to Bonnie Raitt, Janis Joplin, Stevie Nicks, Joan Baez; her music to Van Morrison, Los Lobos, Allman Bros, Neil Young, Johnny Cash … see for yourself …you might just wanna join her “south of the border, livin’ on Tequila Time,” (COUNTRY LINE MAGAZINE). "With the country twang of Bonnie Raitt and the rocker style of Stevie Nicks, TEQUILA TIME has brought James to the national spotlight as a force in the roots music scene"(SONOMA TRIBUNE). Says MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE :“James has a knack for conjuring up some of music’s most celebrated singers…these are her coolest vocal moments…(on TEQUILA TIME) James explores new avenues of expression, which result in some of her gutsiest performances.”
TEQUILA TIME was engineered by Ronnie Rivera (Lisa Marie Presley) and mastered by Grammy award winner Gavin Lurssen (Krauss/Plant, “Raising Sand.”)
