host of The Phil Mack International Country Show, The Irish Music Hour
Lively, personable and engaging; Natasha brings bundles of energy and a very strong and long-lasting passion for music to these wonderful shows and this amazing channel.
Natasha hails from the town of Coleraine in Northern Ireland. Natasha began performing from a very young age, having made her first appearance on stage at a Country Music Festival at the age of four.
Having always had a dream to perform, Natasha continued her love for the stage throughout her entire childhood and into her adult years. At the age of 18, Natasha set her sights on making the move to England, and began studies in the North East, eventually making her way to the city of London. Having performed in several theatre productions including the Sound of Music and Cinderella the Pantomime, Natasha knew it was time to pursue a career in her favourite genre and passion – country music. With hundreds of gigs under her belt, and beginning to build a name for herself on the country scene, 2017 was the year that saw Natasha join the channel, where she had met Phil Mack after performing as the opening act on-stage at the Irish World Awards – hosted by Dara O’Briain.
Since joining the channel, SpotlightTV has helped with giving Natasha the chance to follow her dreams. Natasha plays a huge part in co-hosting and performing at the Phil Mack International Country Music weekends, which take place at the stunning Warner Leisure venues, three times a year to a completely sold out audience. Each year Phil Mack arranges a tour group to head to the holy grail of Country Music , Nashville and in 2018 Natasha was asked to join Phil and his guests on tour to Nashville. Never one to shy from an opportunity – Natasha jumped at the chance to perform as often as possible when in Nashville – and managed to mingle with some of the Nashville big names – Alabama, Dustin Lynch , Ashley Campbell, Joanne Cash, Gerald Smith, Max T Barnes, to name but a few.
The following year of 2019 saw Natasha return to Nashville, taking in New Orleans, Alabama and visiting the iconic Muscle Shoals. Having been to Nashville , Natasha decided to launch an album in 2019 which included her self penned single PositiviTEA. PositiviTEA was released straight to the Country Music Charts and sat in the top twenty for over a week, a huge accomplishment for this budding country star. Although 2020 was the year that put a stop to live gigs and performances, Natasha continues to bring her infectious personality to screen on the Phil Mack International Country and joined Phil to co host his new “lockdown” project The Irish Music Hour. Natasha also used lockdown as an opportunity to bring her years of experience to a whole new audience, the residents of a nursing home as activities coordinator, providing daily entertainment to a range of elderly residents. This has brought so much joy to their lives, and has brought an experience that will stay with Natasha for a lifetime.
With the channel going from strength to strength Natasha is delighted to have been a part of SpotlightTV for four years and would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their continued love and support with both shows.
