Interview With An Amazing Inspiring Artist, With The Best International Project In Russia Of The Year
Today we’d like to introduce you to Natalie Andres.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
Well life is a truly long story where you never know what tomorrow brings. At the age of 4 I sat down at the piano at my parent’s friends house and as far as I remember, all I knew right at that moment Is that music is what I want to do in my life. I’ve travelled a lot since childhood, lived in Germany for a while because my mother’s mom is German and I’ve got many relatives there, I have studied in England ,did my GSCE, As and A level exams, went back to Russia and studied economics and graduated from the Moscow State University, However I never stopped doing music ,writing songs ,performing etc. At the age of 12 I have produced my own cover band “spice girls “. We would always get first places at kids music contests. I am also a laureate of many international music contests since 2010-2021. In 2017, I won in an online contest and came to LA for the first time for the grand opening of IGO Live app ,that was worldwide. This year in August 2021 I got the best international music project in Russia.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
I was a ballerina since 6 years old, that’s already a challenge for a little girl, trust me! Studying in England wasn’t too easy at first. I was sent to boarding St Edmunds school in Canterbury at the age of 14, the one that Orlando Bloom studied in. The school had its own rules and was not giving any exceptions for misbehaving, I was a little trouble. Language was a part of the barrier that I had to overcome after a year or so. My come back to Russia after 5 years in U.K. felt like another challenge that I went through, my personal life… From divorce to being a single parent.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I’m an artist and a songwriter in Russia. My passion for music taught me how to create songs and I’ve learned how to work with pro logic etc. myself to save money on ordering beats that I didn’t like at the end of the day. I have got over 100 songs in English and Russian, I also used to be a PR manager for other artists, I used to run an event company back in my city Toliatti and worked at a company as a sales manager, accountant and did other jobs, but never stopped performing.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
I believe to find success means to work hard and never give up. Become a better version of yourself day by day ,that’s already a huge success.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Success is simple. You are healthy and happy with yourself and your life, couldn’t be happier, that’s success. A lot of people think that success is money or power, but I’ve learned in life that the more they have, the less happy they become.
What’s next for you?
What’s next is I’m back in Russia and I’m working in a music industry, whatever comes -comes. In Russia they say “if you wanna make God laugh – tell Him about your plans for tomorrow “.
