"This voice has its own story to tell," says Die ZEIT about Natalia Mateo.
The FAZ hears "jazz blossoms with deep roots." Born in 1983, Natalia Mateo is a wanderer between worlds - musically and in life.
Born in Poland, raised in Austria, and now living in Germany, she has absorbed and incorporated a wide range of impressions and cultures: Mateo draws from Slavic song traditions, American jazz, singer-songwriters from Joni Mitchell to Amy Macdonald, as well as contemporary pop and rock music.
The Jazzpodium writes about the singer: "Mateo's voice has something crystalline, something melancholic and brittle. It sounds vulnerable - but not wounded. Self-assured, without even the slightest hint of elitism."
