Natalie Mering, known professionally as Weyes Blood, is an American singer, songwriter, and musician. Her 2019 album, Titanic Rising, is the culmination of three albums and years of touring. It’s an achievement in transcendent vocals and levitating arrangements—one she could reach only by flying under the radar for so many years. ‘I used to want to belong,’ Natalie says. “I realized I had to forge my own path’. She has gained recognition for her distinctive style of melodic and orchestral songwriting melded with urgent global issues. ‘It’s so symbolic that The Titanic would crash into an iceberg, now that iceberg is melting, sinking civilisation’, she says. She has drawn comparisons vocally to Karen Carpenter while lyrically crafting songs full of truth, beauty and hope.
