Biography

Natalie Rose LeBrecht, who released her first albums under the name Greenpot Bluepot, lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Devoted to studies in sound, texture and emotion, LeBrecht creates an intriguing sphere of her own in her artwork, and somehow preserves a fantastic sense of humour in the process. She is also known for an unsettlingly schizophrenic voice that morphs into different personalities within each song, invading the listener’s senses and illusions.

Natalie Rose LeBrecht has quite a lot in common with the New Weird America scene, and the likes of Devendra Banhart, Joana Newsom as well as CocoRosie, who participated at last year’s City of Women festival. At the same time, however, her music is more colourful and original, and as such an echo of Philip Glass, Laurie Anderson and other avant-garde performance artists. In addition to composition, LeBrecht plays a whole array of instruments, including guitar, drums and piano, but undoubtedly most intoxicating of all are her vocal abilities which pass from soft, nearly angelic sounds to multi-layered voices and schizophrenic screaming. By way of this, she is able to create a very intimate and emotionally charged atmosphere.

LeBrecht has released limited editions of her own CDs under the pseudonym Greenpot Bluepot; these include Daymares and Nightdreams (2001) as well as Warraw (2003), which was issued in a finely designed small bag that LeBrecht crafted herself. The strange and disconcerting revelations of Warraw are undoubtedly experimentation, but not for mere self-indulgence.
