I am a Canadian multi-disciplinary artist based in Berlin, Germany, known for my variety of musical work within theater, musical ensembles, experimental performances, and for bridging the gap between electronic pop music and the accordion with my dreamy, dark, romantic "electro-accordion chanteuse" sultry vocal and songwriting style. .
By being my patron you will have the chance to receive:
- Access to my Patreon *blog: Read about my journey and see my work-in-progress and behind-the-scenes action (*As many may know, I used to keep a blog "Saving the world with the accordion" and had to quit it for various reasons. This new Patreon blog will be picking up where I left off with that!)
- My eternal gratitude
- Once a month live video practice of me singing
- Once a month download of one demo cover recording
- Meet-and-greet at gigs
- Autographed pictures mailed worldwide
- Personalized video of me singing for you or your loved one
I am looking for your patronage and support with my musical career through donations for the costs of new recording gear, performance gear, hardware and software, mixing & mastering, rehearsal space, costuming, promo photos, videography, editing, and publicity.
Supporting independent artists means you are helping shape culture and the society we live in. Artists and their artwork of all kinds is important because it inspires our moods, brightens our days, makes up the landscape for our lives, and marks our place in history.
Be a part of my progress! Support me - Miss Natasha Enquist - so I can create new music!
A little bit more about me:
My first career was in fashion design, but the accordion and music took over my life. I have had a versatile career with performing in the Canadian cabaret comedy troupe Atomic Vaudeville, international music and art festivals, creating and leading a Balkan-style marching band, performing at the historic Wintergarten Theater in Berlin, performance contracts with Walt Disney World, Heineken, ongoing work with Hendrick's Gin, and Tom of Finland Vodka, had 4 of my original songs featured in the Berlin-based short film “The Birthday”, which has debuted at over 20 international film festivals. I have performed with Canadian Children's Entertainer, Mr. Fred Penner, shared the stage with Karl Bartos (Kraftwerk), Chicks on Speed, Hidden Cameras, and Geoff Berner, have had sponsorship from MOD Devices and Butcherei Lindinger, and have launched my own record label, MNE Records and recorded my debut album, "MNE", in Berlin with Kollo Agency and was partially funded by my Indiegogo crowd-funding campaign for it. I have produced two music videos, which are now streaming on MTV Germany, MTV Switzerland, MTV Netherlands, and VIVA TV's websites and I continue to do both vocal and accordion recording session work as well as collaborations with Berlin-based studios.
I identify as an Androgynous-Femme/ Genderqueer Feminist, and this identity and fundamental outlook effects how I live my life and where I fit with my career, and living in Berlin has given me the opportunity to explore myself and artist-self further. I have had the pleasure of performing for the leather & fetish community -where I often feel the most at home- at Folsom Europe, parties at both Insomnia and KitKat Club, Male.Space's Testosterone party, Darklands - Antwerp's Leather & Fetish Pride Festival. In addition, I have work with some very talented photographers and visual artists as an art model and muse - which allows me to explore body positivity and play with gender stereotypes.
I released my debut album, "MNE", and produced my record release concert in October 2016, and continue to develop and perform pieces from that production - incorporating projected visuals into the narrative of my music. To learn more, please read my full biography here.
