Natalie Lurie - No Mercy in the Night

Introducing Nashville-based singer/songwriter and classically-trained harpist Natalie Lurie who has today shared her emotive first single titled "No Mercy In The Night", which also serves as the title track taken from her forthcoming debut EP, due out on March 25th.

The EP, produced by Dustin Ransom (Emily West, Ryan Bingham), is a collection of four heart-wrenching songs that document a trying time in Lurie's life, while also outlining a difficult relationship and the strain that it placed on her relationships with friends and family.

Natalie's fascination with the harp began at age seven when she spotted the instrument in a music shop. She sat down and began strumming until the shop owner finally asked she and her family to leave because the store was closing. Natalie's harp studies have taken her across the globe. During her senior year of high school she attended the Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. After that, she studied privately in France and Switzerland, before returning to the US where she completed her undergraduate work under renowned harpist Susann McDonald at Indiana University.

Though she is classically trained, Natalie has always held an interest in expanding the harp beyond its traditional classical genre. Before moving to Nashville to pursue songwriting and performing, she spent time in Muscle Shoals, AL working with original session musicians from the 1960s. Natalie will soon move to London to pursue a Master of Arts in Harp Performance at the Royal Academy of Music.
