Raised in Lanark, a small town between Glasgow and Edinburgh, Natasha Stewart was captivated with music from an early age citing big songwriters such as Whitney and Mariah Carey as inspirations. With no musical family (both her parents are dentists), Natasha forged her own path and moved to London to study Creative Musicianship at the Institute of Contemporary Music Performance.
Natasha soon landed gigs touring as a backing vocalist for the likes of Rita Ora, Ella Eyre, Bebe Rexha and Martin Garrix, performing on some of the world’s biggest stages whilst developing her own songwriting as thisisNAMASTE. Taking her childhood pop influences and a love of artists such as Sia, Robyn and Tove Lo and a pack of big pop songs in her pocket to follow, 2019 will witness thisisNAMASTE coming into her own.
Emerging Scottish singer thisisNAMASTE (Natasha Marie Stewart) is pleased to reveal that her debut single Exactly What You Want is out today Friday, June 28th, 2019 via Humble Angel Records) complete with a brand new video. The track was co-written and produced by Adam Argyle (Olly Murs, James Bay, Dua Lipa).
Exactly What You Want is a catchy, concisely-written pop song that lingers on the mind way past the listen. Future pop beats blend with a dizzying chorus, resulting in a promising first offering from the rising young artist.
thisisNAMASTE - “This song is about me disclosing early on in a relationship that if you want me to be polished and perfect all the time, that just isn’t going to happen, but if you want someone to hang out and have a lot of fun with and don't mind that that same someone may potentially steal your food and clothes from time to time, then I’m the perfect girl for you! In the era of ‘#RelationshipGoals’ plastered across social media, I thought it would be fun to write a song with a light-hearted take on the realities of most people in a comfortable relationship.”
