ABOUT

BIOGRAPHY

Miss Natasha Enquist is a Canadian multi-disciplinary artist, based somewhere in a space-time travel continuum between Berlin, Germany and the Pacific Northwest of Canada. Originally from British Columbia, Canada, she studied classical piano as a child, attended the University of Victoria for History of Art, and had a career in fashion before having the accordion take over her life. She has performed her way from Canada to Walt Disney World, and over to Europe to progress with bridging the gap between electronic pop music and the accordion. Miss Natasha Enquist treats the accordion as a human-powered synthesizer, while enchanting her audiences with her charming and sultry presence with her dreamy, dark, romantic "electro-accordion chanteuse" style.
 
She has had a versatile career with performing in the Canadian cabaret comedy troupe Atomic Vaudeville, international music, dance, theatre and art festivals, creating and leading a 12-person Balkan-style marching band, a performance contract with Walt Disney World, performing at the historic Wintergarten Theater in Berlin, the Magic Mirrors Spiegeltent in Bruges, Belgium and has worked with the alcohol brands Heineken, Hendrick's Gin, Tito's Vodka, Bombay Sapphire Gin, and Tom of Finland Vodka. She has had 4 of her original songs from her "MNE" album featured in the Berlin-based short film “The Birthday”, which has debuted at over 20 international film festivals, had her single "Vanishing Memories" used for the fashion collection video "The Secret Liberation of Clothes" by the fashion label Substantielles Minimum. Performed with Canadian Children's Entertainer, Mr. Fred Penner, shared the stage with Karl Bartos (Kraftwerk), Chicks on Speed, Hidden Cameras, and Geoff Berner, has had sponsorship from MOD Devices and Butcherei Lindinger, and has launched her own record label, MNE Records and recorded her debut album, "MNE", in Berlin with Kollo Agency, with music videos streaming on MTV Germany, MTV Switzerland, MTV Netherlands, and VIVA TV's websites and continues to do both vocal and accordion recording session work as well as collaborations with Berlin-based studios.


Her "MNE" album was partially funded by an Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign Miss Natasha Enquist launched for it. She released the single EP's "Summer Bird EP" and "Weltgeist EP" prior to the full release of the album in August 2016, and then produced her record release concert in October 2016 at the historic Theater im Delphi in Berlin, and continues to develop and perform pieces from that production - incorporating projected visuals into the narrative of her music.

Miss Natasha Enquist has had the pleasure of performing for the leather & fetish community over in Europe -where she has felt the most at home- at Folsom Europe Street Fair, parties at both Insomnia and KitKat Club (Berlin DE), Male.Space's Testosterone parties, and Darklands - Antwerp's Leather & Fetish Pride Festival

Her intention with her "electro-accordion" project is to innovate the instrument and bridge the gap between electronic music and the accordion through sampling and sound design in live and post-production. This project was originally inspired by a project she had with her musician friend Mesa Luna, which was inspired by her electronic musician friends A Great White Bird and Nathan Jonson (fka Hrdvsion). Mixing electronic pop music with the accordion and her voice, she draws from her influences within electronic pop music and other artists like Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Goldfrapp, Björk and the Eurythmics, and her voice and stage presence is often compared to, but not limited to, Grace Jones and Marlene Dietrich.
