Biography
 
Music is embedded in Nathalie Matthews very
being and with a new start and a debut album 
this beautiful Canadian vocalist plans to open 
herself up to the world and allow all to experience 
what she has to offer. 
As a child Nathalie was encouraged to explore
 the arts. By the age of 11 she could play the flute, 
the saxophone and the piano, but it didn’t take her 
long to discover that her favorite instrument was her voice.
 With an amazing six-octave range and stellar stage 
presence, everyone who heard her sing was astounded
 by the maturity of her voice. At the age of 16, Nathalie 
started her first band and soon became a hometown 
favorite. She later entered the Miss Montreal Pageant and 
won the category of “Best Talent.” She went on to compete 
in the Miss Quebec Pageant and because of her friendly 
demeanor and outgoing personality she was chosen as
 “Ms. Congeniality.” With a newfound fame and confidence
 Nathalie connected with the management of Grammy-award 
winner Celine Dion and landed the coveted spot of back up singer.
 Her amazing talent and fluency in French made her an asset to
 the bilingual singer’s band. After touring with Celine and learning
 the art of performance from one of the best, Nathalie decided to
 strike out on her own, formed a new band and began to tour
 Eastern Canada. Even though she had no album and no airplay, 
Nathalie was able to garner a large fan base. Once audiences 
heard her they had no choice but to love her! 
As fate would have it Nathalie fell in love and 
decided to put her singing aspirations on-hold 
to pursue family. In 2005, she decided it was 
time to let go of her last love, while re-embracing 
her first love and what better place to start fresh than
 the United States? She traveled to Las Vegas and 
participated in the 2005 International Music Festival. 
Nathalie wowed the judges with her powerful voice 
and was awarded the category of “Best R&B Pop” artist.
 The opportunity and exposure also allowed her to cross
 paths with some of the best producers the industry has
 to offer and after recording a few songs in New York 
she moved to Los Angeles, CA, to record her album and 
launch her own label, Cougar Entertainment Group. 
Once in LA, she stepped into the studio to purge herself 
of the music that had been bottled inside for years. What 
emerged was 13 cuts of pure Nathalie Matthews. Her self-titled
 debut album is a delicious blend of pop and R&B that contains heartfelt 
messages of love, pain, healing and triumph. In honor of her roots, 
Nathalie also recorded two songs in French —one is Chaka Khan’s 
hit “Ain’t Nobody.” The album contains fabulous production by David Cochrane,
 formerly of the Commodores. He is responsible for hits from
 Lionel Richie, Paula Abdul, Atlantic Starr and others. Victor Newman
 also joined in the effort (Tyrese, Randy Jackson, and Mike Epps). 
The album in currently in pre-release and can be found via the Internet. 
Nathalie is now performing spot dates in and around Southern California.
