In the tradition of British female singer-songwriters Annie Lennox and Dido, Natasha Bedingfield brings lyrical honesty and vocal clarity to her music. Since the international release of her album Unwritten she's turned into a star with her "anthemic, quirky mixture of pop and soul." Produced by Patrick Leonard (Madonna) and Guy Chambers (Robbie Williams) among others, the album has achieved triple platinum status in the UK. Not only was she nominated for 4 Brit Awards (Best Pop Act, Best Single "These Words," Best British Breakthrough Act, Best British Female Solo Artist), but Natasha is the most nominated female artist in a single year in the history of the Brit awards. She is also the younger sister of UK pop star Daniel Bedingfield (who achieved US success in 2002 with the hit "Gotta Get Through This" and "If You're Not the One").
The full-length Unwritten is an edgy, hip fusion of upbeat grooves and rhythmic pop tunes preceeded by the single "These Words," which debuted at No. 1 on the UK single charts. To help introduce Natasha in the US Giant Step was given the change to commission two artists - Dwele and Plantlife - to add their own signatature touch while retaining the perfect pop sensibilty of the song. Dwele's remix reflects the sing-a-long, head bopping R&B vibe that made him one of the most recognizable artists in soul music, while Plantlife's remix highlights the dance element of the song bringing the guitars to the front to create a funky feel.
