ABOUT NATALIE LAYNE
Growing up in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Natalie Layne was constantly surrounded by music. Her family instilled in her a love of music from a young age as she watched her mom sing and lead worship, and her dad play bass and trombone. Natalie’s grandma was her first piano teacher, introducing topics such as songwriting, notation, and improvisation. She began to love classical and jazz music as well as popular song styles.
Currently residing in Nashville, Natalie’s latest independent single “Love Me Back to Life” has gained millions of views on Instagram Reels and on TikTok where she has over 196,000 followers and 2.8 million likes on her videos. The single follows her 2021 Castles EP and 2020 independent debut Be Human that have garnered attention worldwide. The music led to opening concerts for Jeremy Camp, Chris Tomlin and We the Kingdom, as well as sharing stages at festivals with Steven Curtis Chapman, Mandisa and Crowder.
Playing in several Nashville-based R&B and jazz bands, Natalie graduated with a Master’s Degree in Commercial Piano from Belmont University where she also taught Fundamentals of Music classes. Writing and producing her own music, she also leads worship at her local church. She began leading worship at the age of 12, leading alongside worship pastors such as Cory Asbury, Jon Egan and Jared Anderson. By age 14, she was heading up teams of musicians at New Life Church and has spent time traveling across America leading worship and sharing her original songs. In December 2022, Natalie signed an exclusive recording and publishing contract with Centricity Music, and her label debut is currently slated for fall 2023.
