Biography

Just one hit is enough to hook you on the
addiction that is NLX: Natasha Alexandra.
The NY Times reckons: “NLX traffics in
unschooled, confessional, piano ballads.” To
connect with her music is a rush like no other.
Tension, then release …

NLX has been covering her tracks. Rumor has it
she served her time in Hamilton, Ontario - a
small steel town where the survivors are the
fittest, and the smartest … those brave
enough to escape its desperate clutches.

So it was in the dives and hotspots of
Toronto – clubs like El Mocambo, C’est What
and The Drake – that she developed her
signature sound … a potent cocktail infused
with Daniel Lanois, Tori Amos, PJ Harvey and NIN.

Then forays to New York City where 2004’s
‘Meat Inspection Tour’ established her as
more than just a girl at a piano. “Trent Reznor
with Tits,” is what fans dubbed her, while the
Songwriters Hall of Fame described NLX as
“extraordinary, outstanding, compelling,
distinctive and very, very special.”

Now a permanent fixture in the Big Apple, the
NLX momentum is accelerating … with gigs at
the best NYC venues – Joe’s Pub, The Living
Room, Rockwood Music Hall - plus West coast
action at Hotel Café in LA and Lestat’s in
San Diego. And she’s still much in demand
in her homeland, recently opening a 20-date
cross country tour with David Usher, and
with openings for the likes of Stabilo
and Pilot Speed.

2006 saw the release of NLX: In Your Face
and NLX: Behind Your Back, offering up
