About Natalie McCool

Natalie McCool first came to public attention for winning a national songwriting competition judged by Coldplay’s Chris Martin. Since then she has written with Paul McCartney, performed with Boy George and collaborated with Beth Orton.

“I remember being a curious 14 year old deeply into music. I was constantly looking for opportunities around me; whether that was writing with other musicians my age, performing live in bands or playing guitar and singing in different projects – I had a real thirst for music. That’s why I am hugely excited to lead this residency exclusively for young female singers, songwriters and instrumentalists; a fantastic way to develop creative ideas, work with other musicians, perform live and above all: have fun!” 

This residency is part of Both Sides Now – our initiative to support, inspire and showcase female music creators across the North of England.
