Natalie Nichole, singer-songwriter, was born in Lubbock, Texas & raised in San Antonio, Texas.
Given the birth name Natalie Nichole Carrizalez she chose to use Natalie Nichole as her stage
name when she moved to California January 2016 in spite of going by "NC" or "TheOnlyNC"
all her childhood & high school years. Natalie at a very young age, was involved with dancing
groups, talent shows, TV Shows, Commercials, and youth organizations such as NYA and
HYPE. With NYA (Network for Young Artists), she gained experience throughout San Antonio,
TX performing at local rodeos and festivals such as Luminaria. While a part of HYPE, Natalie
helped to write songs, danced, and helped educate Texas youth about anti-bullying
movements and drug and alcohol abuse prevention. In her junior year of high school, she was
involved in the Rock Star Academy, an organization in which multi-Grammy winner Michael
Morales mentors and trains aspiring artists with skills such as guitar, singing, drums, and
Natalie describes herself as a multi-tasker. While she was a member of the Rock Star
Academy, she began working on her first album titled The Differe[NC]e. It was released on
iTunes and CD on April 27th, 2012. She immediately began working on her second album titled
New Kinda Feeling, which was released on iTunes and CD on June 27th, 2015. To promote her
2nd CD while continuing to work on it, she released a seven-song demo, which she used to
perform at Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar in New York City. Soon after arriving back to Texas,
Natalie was randomly contacted and asked to audition a cold read of a script in Austin for
CGTV. She ended up being the #1 pick in Austin, and was given a scholarship to be mentored
by Adrian R’Mante in California for the CGTV Summer Acting Intensive in June 2015. She was
given the opportunity to perform at ACME Theater in front of multiple agents, from which she
received six call-backs.
Upon the realization that she could have a successful acting career, Natalie decided that she
would move to California to pursue it. When asked what she would do with her developing
music career, she responded with, “I will definitely continue it. It’s my passion; my first love.
There’s never going to be a day that I don’t incorporate my music in some way, shape, or
form. It’s a part of who I am.”Natalie is a member of ASCAP, which is an organization for
singer-songwriters and producers. While living in Burbank, California starting at the beginning
of 2016 Natalie jumped right into work becoming an UBER DRIVER, being involved in the
CGTV Pilot Program with Adrian R'Mante, rubbing elbows in the studio with the likes of Smitty
Soul (Credits: Chris Brown, Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj etc.), Ron Aniello (Credits: EMPIRE,
Bruce Springsteen, Shania Twain.), Pusha Rod (Credits: YG, Dreezy.), Rita Wilson & gaining
even more experience in songwriting in sessions for artists like Disney Star CoCo Jones.
Natalie became homeless shortly after her 22nd birthday for 10months while living in California
but that didn't stop her from continuing to work, becoming an extra for more money & still
pursuing her dreams! While surviving in L.A. a few CSUN college students asked to do a
Documentary-Short on Natalie for their graduating project that'd premiere in Beverly Hills at
the WGA Theater; Nominated for Best Documentary & best Director for the film. During this
same time Natalie also auditioned for Nick Cannon's #SignMeToNCredible Challenge via
