Although Natti always expressed himself through song, having memorized entire musicals and operas from toddlerhood on, he didn't begin to take himself seriously until a close friend heard his first recording, "Jelly! A Marinal Rock Opera." Declaring it sophisticated and innovative, this friend encouraged Natti to try writing in earnest. So Natti thrashed at his piano all night long. What he had written by sunrise was his first serious composition, the jazzy, manic-depressive piano ballad "Headjam."
17-year-old Natti took this newfound talent to New York City to attend the New School University, where he couldn't stop creating random melodies, funky piano riffs and lyrical oddities, at every available moment. He formed a band, which played his newly sprouting works, eventually winning them the first place prize in his university's Battle of the Bands.
Since going rogue, Natti has performed at a whole host of amazing rock clubs, concert halls, churches, radio stations, webcasts, theaters, lecture halls, protest rallies and decadent salons in the US, Scotland, China, Taiwan and Japan, accruing many eccentric and intelligent fans along the way.
