McCool & The Gang

Singer, songwriter & guitarist Natalie McCool shines as a unique star in the UK indie world, having risen through the ranks and amassed a ton of organic support and critical acclaim.

Based in Liverpool, Natalie is known for her truly innovative and beautiful take on pop music. Releasing her album ‘The Great Unknown’ in 2016, it has made tastemakers across the board fans of her exceptional art, with notable supports with Aurora & Jamie Lawson, & acclaim from The Sunday Times, Q, Pigeons & Planes & Wonderland as well as BBC Radio 1 DJs Huw Stephens.

Fully wrapped up, her forthcoming album is a fine collection of songs which channel her raw, inimitable writing style. Partly co-written with The Wombats’ Daniel Haggis, they capture and crystallize her memories from both childhood and adulthood, weaving deeply intimate stories that channel life’s most vital thoughts and feelings like love, jealousy and loss into a skewed mixture of lilting yet gloriously catchy pop songs.

Natalie’s show offers a window into her world as a music artist and spotlights other creatives she has worked with. Featuring one or more special guests every month, each show is a chinwag about the world of music & what makes us creative souls tick. Tune in for wonderful insight, live music, and above all – for FUN.

In this edition, Natalie chats to Amazing Radio DJ, host and podcaster Shell Zenner about how music can save your life, the strength of network and community, and how to make your track stand out on BBC Introducing.
