James’ latest release TEQUILA TIME was touted by respected international publication MUSIC CONNECTION as “jazz-tinged country, reminiscent of Van Morrison.”  Natasha’s remarkable radio success continues as both her TEQUILA TIME and BAD JUDGMENTS albums are currently being played on the air in Japan, The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, Ireland, England, France, Spain, Italy and more.  Within two hours of TEQUILA TIME being uploaded, over 400 radio downloads of her songs had occurred! MUSIC NEWS NASHVILLE  called  “If You Think This Is Love” a “downright Bonnie Raitt blues-y performance…one of (James’) best. The song is “a twangy hip shaker guaranteed to grab you by your feet and throw you in a dancing mood.”

Natasha will be a Featured Guest and Perform Live on Actors E Chat in Hollywood, Calif. on Thursday, November 18 at 10 a.m.(log onto to listen and watch live). The popular web-based program interviews some of today’s best and brightest entertainers from both the worlds of music and film making.

Natasha James will be a judge, as well as write the first song, and perform on “FALL IN LOVE WITH AMERICA – AGAIN,”  a documentary-style web and mobile-based audio/video/multimedia series launching this September highlighting stories from across America. In addition to being made into a feature-length documentary film, the project includes live web cam updates, a touring exhibit, interactive websites, and social/networking sites. In her judging capacity, James “will be looking for the next great American song! and working with  some of the selected new songwriters,” says Executive Producer, Dennis Gelbaum.

“On the sophomore album from this remarkably-talented Sonoma County singer-songwriter, James is versatile enough to be comfortable in acoustic Americana styles, minor key blues, story songs, straight-ahead rockers, and, surprisingly enough, even Latin jazz…this is a mature singer-songwriter at the peak of her powers who reminds me of Bonnie Raitt and Susan Tedeschi, but has a style all her own.”   Marin Imdependent Journal

The Sonoma County-based musician is nominated in two categories for the 2010 (20th Annual) Los Angeles Music Awards – “Female Singer/Songwriter of the Year” and “Country Artist of the Year.” The LAMA’s take place November 18 at Paramount Theater in Hollywood, Calif. James won “Country Album of the Year” at the 19th L.A. Music Awards last November for TEQUILA TIME.

As hot as any performer going at the moment, Natasha James won “AC/Hot AC New Artist” at the 2009 NEW MUSIC WEEKLY Awards, joining Kings of Leon, Jakob Dylan, Black-Eyed Peas and others on the prestigious winners’ podium; was chosen a “Hot 100 Artist For 2009” by longtime respected trade publication, MUSIC CONNECTION; and saw TEQUILA TIME selected as a “Best Of the 2000’s/End Of Decade” choice by Live 365/WOMENS RADIO, where it is presently being featured.
Moving forward, James will be performing at the 2011 Berlin Country Music Festival.
