Nathalie Pires

Nathalie Pires proudly represents what is arguably the oldest urban folk music in the world; the soul of Portugal, Fado. Her intense voice and raw emotion has gained her overwhelming recognition by the media and her international audiences as one of today's leading "fadistas," a huge honour considering she was born and raised in the United States.

The success of her award winning debut album in 2007, "Corre-me o Fado Nas Veias" led her to stages all over the United States and Canada.

Highlights of Nathalie's career include a guest performance in world famous saxophone player Tim Ries' "Rolling Stone Project" concert in Austria, recording with the orchestra "Manhattan Camerata", and various performances in some of the most prestigious Fado houses in Lisbon alongside living legends of the genre and accompanied by some of the best guitarists in the history of Fado.

Nathalie is currently preparing her untitled sophomore album for a year end release and performs weekly in Manhattan restaurant "PAO!" amongst other performances. For more information visit www.nathaliepires.com
