This Week’s Feature Artist and Listen In Comp Winner, Meet Natasha Bianca

Listen In Comp Winner, Meet Natasha Bianca

Introducing a name we’re certain you’re going to hear A LOT more of, it’s this week’s Feature Artist, Natasha Bianca.

Shaking up the South Australian music scene, this RnB act is consistently staying true to her sound and herself and is embracing her femininity one silky smooth tune at a time.

Hitting the Listen In stage as one of our 2023 comp winners is only one of many bucket list achievements that this up and comer has ticked off.

Natasha Bianca’s story dates back to when she was just six years old and her struggles with a speech impediment. She was recommended to start seeing a singing teacher instead of consulting a speech pathologist. Her teacher told her she had promise and in time her speech improved.

“It was just something that I knew that I was born to do”

Indeed it is!

Starting to write music in 2015/16 and waiting to share it with the world ‘till 2021, it was at that point that this star on the rise began really connecting with audiences locally.

No stranger to the stage, Natasha Bianca sold out her debut show and has already supported big names nationally like Thandi Phoenix (!!!) and Internationally like Jacquees (!!!!!).

So, of course we just had to have her bring all of that energy and sass to the stage of Listen In Adelaide.

“I attended Listen In last year and I told myself, ‘I’m getting on that stage next year’ and then it happened so it was just like the most amazing feeling ever.”

The waterworks came down when Natasha Bianca found out she’d be hitting the stage alongside some of her idols including none other than Miss Munch herself… Ice spice!

In a similar vein to Ice Spice, audiences at the festival can expect, “a lot of ass shaking, I apologise if that offends anyone in advance” shares Natasha Bianca.

“I’ve worked my ass off for this and it’s not just within the last month or whatever, we’ve been doing this since young.”

Natasha Bianca follows a lineage of strong female powerhouses, growing up on a solid diet of Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston in her earlier years, her current influences now range in acts such as KehlaniDoja Cat and Tkay Maidza. Admiring the versatility an dynamic nature of each of these acts, Natasha Bianca is en route to reaching for the stars.

Word on the street is that there’s lots coming our way from this act out of Adelaide, describing her new stuff as “a different side of Natasha Bianca”.

“Sometimes if I’m having a bad day, I’ll listen to some of my unreleased stuff and I’m like, yeah, you got this… I have to remind myself how far I’ve come.”
