Describe your music in a sentence.
Power ballads and fast-paced high energy catchy rock/pop songs that are meaningfully written and meticulously arranged.
What compelled you to become a musician?
I LOVED music & song from a very early age and remember being mesmerised by people who played the electric guitar’ (picture the 80’s lead guitar player). I would pick up a tennis racket or anything that resembled a guitar and pretend to play it! I was around 8 years old when my Dad finally gave in and bought me an electric guitar, I had hassled him for years…and the rest is history!
What can people expect from a Nat Allison show?
I like to take a lot of care in the way I sing, play, and deliver each individual song to the audience. You can expect Rock ‘n’ Roll music with lots of energy and oomph but also moments that will pull your heartstrings.
What do you struggle with most at the business end of your music career?
Selling myself is something I’ve never been comfortable doing but when you’re a self-managed artist, wearing all the hats, there are times you just have to do it.
Any tips for how you look after your health?
I run and go to the gym which is both energizing and great for my mind! Diet is also important to my health routine particularly because I’m a singer, if you’re eating the wrong foods it can affect the voice greatly. I eat fresh vegetables, salads, and seafood and steer away mostly from products made from wheat and dairy. I also make sure to keep hydrated and try my best to get good sleep, which can be difficult in my line of work sometimes!
Favourite binge-watch during lockdown?
Lots of True Crime Story.
If there’s one Nat Allison song people should hear, which is it?
Anyone For Tennis? – It’s a high-energy, fun, quirky, unusual song! *Fun fact: It was used for both the 2010 & 2012 Australian Open.
Ok …. I have to ask. What is Suzi Quatro really like?
Suzi is very funny, she’s always cracking jokes which makes spending time with her socially and when working a lot of fun. She knows what she wants when it comes to her career and music and is very good at directing people. She’s a class act!
