Natasha Duchene is a multi-disciplinary creative professional with credits in music, theatre, film and new media. She has been entrancing audiences from the Californian desert to the icy waters of Canada’s north with her music. Her songs take you to complex emotional spaces and into the dark woods, often drawing on the powerful landscapes of the North and the desert for metaphor and inspiration. With a background in music composition from Université de Montréal, her commitment to the craft is as strong as her passion for storytelling.
Natasha grew up around art and film making. After many years working on projects with her father’s production company, she recently made her directorial debut with a tv-documentary for the Pet Network, North Paws, which has gone on to win awards at both the Yellowknife International Film Festival and the Good Dog Film Festival in Australia. Her strong musicianship has also brought her to the theatre as musical director for several plays, as well as on stage as an actor and singer.
Natasha tells stories that are close to the heart and uses a combination of video and music to bring these stories home. She is inspired by landscapes, community, and the power of the human spirit.
