About Nattali Rize
Australia's Nattali Rize is a singer/guitarist/songwriter known for her politically minded, reggae-influenced pop/rock. A native of Byron Bay, Rize (initially known as Natalie Pa'apa'a) first began making music as a street performer alongside partner Carlo Santone in the band Skin. In 2004, the couple moved to Melbourne and formed the eight-member roots-and-reggae band Blue King Brown, with whom they recorded and performed for over a decade. After relocating to Jamaica in 2014, Pa'apa'a began working on solo material and adopted the stage name Nattali Rize, purportedly inspired by both the Native American word "natt" meaning "speaker" and the Bob Marley song "Rise Up." In 2015, she collaborated with the reggae ensemble Notis for her debut EP, New Era Frequency. Featured on the album was the single "Rebel Love." Two years later, she delivered her debut full-length album, Rebel Frequency, which included guest appearances from Julian Marley, Raging Fyah, and others.
