Natureboy, the musical project of Sara Kermanshahi, has been leaving local music fans in a state of aural bliss for the past few months. From a slew of packed Brooklyn loft shows to an intimate candle-lit performance at Bushwick’s Eastern District during the neighborhood arts festival, Natureboy’s fragile-yet-powerful folk and pop songs have transfixed everyone. Each song is a bittersweet slice of longing, laced with Sara’s ethereal and wholly unique vocal delivery (it’s hard to think of another artist who sounds quite like her), and the atmospheric instrumentation of her backing band (Cedar Apffel and Rory O’Connor). A recently recorded self-titled album is available on iTunes and you can head to the Myspace and give a listen to the poignant slow build of “Famous Sons” or the melancholic “Heart to Fool.” If you like what you hear make sure to check out a show—the visceral live experience of Natureboy will only make you appreciate the music even more. —Bill Dvorak
