Natasha Bedingfield grew up in London, surrounded by a culture of creativity in the arts and music after her parents immigrated from New Zealand. Inspired by her brother Daniel, who in 2001 scored his first radio hits, she began writing and soon signed a deal with BMG, followed by a much acclaimed, top-selling album, "Unwritten" that debuted at number one on the British charts.
Bedingfield's rhythmic pop sound netted her Platinum artist status, a Grammy Award nomination for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance and multiple Brit Awards noms for Best British Female Artist. 'Unwritten' was the most played song on US Top 40 radio that year and was the title track for MTV's 'The Hills' at the peak of reality programming popularity, becoming an anthem of its time. Her VH1 award-winning song with John Legend and Kanye West inspired the channel to rank Bedingfield number 66 of 100 greatest women in music. Natasha has collaborated with a wide range of artists from Nicki Minaj (by Minaj's invitation) to Big Sean, Rascal Flatts, Stevie Wonder, Brandy, Bruno Mars, Sean Kingston, Lil Wayne, Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow, and Jon Bon Jovi. Her new album is produced by Multi-Platinum producer Linda Perry, releasing on Perry and Kerry Brown's label WE ARE HEAR in August.
