Since starting his musical journey over a decade ago, Natty has since toured worldwide touching down in Japan,
India, North & South America, the Caribbean, Africa and Europe; meeting the people, collaborating with other
musicians and spreading his positive vibes.
Alongside this artistic expansion, Natty has also evolved as a man; becoming a father and taking various spiritual
journeys has aligned perspectives and strengthened his message. He is also involved with an orphanage in Gambia,
as well as various community projects in Southern Africa and London.
“Becoming an independent artist was a big step in 2012, and then travelling to Africa, Jamaica and other parts of the
world and getting in touch with the things that I was writing about,
but maybe hadn’t really lived and things that I couldn’t have imagined.
I spent a lot of time visiting Rasta elders, Amazon shamans, African spiritual elders and
sacred sites. My time in Africa also led to my becoming involved with the erasefoundation.org.
To date we have built four schools and one orphanage that currently homes 60 children.”
