Natalie Joly is a 24 year old award-winning pop-rock recording artist. She’s also a singer, songwriter, and musician, who wrote her first song at the age of 8, released her first self-produced CD at 17, an EP at 19, and her single, ‘Irresistible’, in 2018. This was followed by ‘You Oughta Know’, in 2019, which was declared regionally as Song Of The Year. Last November she released ‘Running Circles’, her first fully self-produced release, which was then followed by ‘Will You Ever Stop’, in January this year. Both, along with her current single, ‘Yours To Stay’, which was released on February 26, are from her upcoming album.
Natalie Joly brings modern pop elements into her songs, alongside live instruments and the sounds of classic rock, all meshed together with captivating lyrics. Her songwriting and sound also draws in many different styles as well, citing as among her influences, the likes of Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, The Beatles, Taylor Swift, and Tom Petty, among many others.
A rock power ballad, ‘Yours to Stay’ tells a story of elusive love, and making the final effort in a relationship where you don’t quite fully know whether it’s going to last or not. The emotional journey is powered along by Joly’s vocals; she created three strong lead parts which all work together perfectly, giving a musical example of the song’s multiple storylines about what is, what might have been, and what will be. The video, which stars Joly herself, was released the same day as the song, is the second to have been filmed in an abandoned mansion, now torn down. Highlighted by candles, she sits and plays at the piano, the focus on her the entire time. ‘Yours To Stay’ was both written and produced by Joly, who also sang, and played piano, and electronic strings.
