Ex-New York subway singer to play Northstar California

TRUCKEE, Calif. — “Streetlamp Musician” Natalie Gelman has gone national.

A native of New York City’s West Village, Gelman began busking on subway platforms in Times Square because she was to young to play in nightclubs.

Her first record, “Streetlamp Musician,” was a six-song EP produced by Charlie Midnight and Mark Needham, who worked, respectively, with James Brown and the Killers. A nine-track CD with the same title will be released May 14.

Press materials describe Gelman’s music as a mix of folk, pop and rock, along with “a silver lining,” she said.

“There are a lot of heavy topics covered in my songs.” she said, “but always a bit of hope and vulnerable, childlike dreaming for some ideal.”

Gelman, who now lives in Ojai, Calif., will perform this weekend at Northstar California and in Truckee.
