If singer-songwriter Natalie Gelman seems familiar, it's because the West Villager’s cut her teeth busking on the subway for almost a decade and even earned a spot in the coveted MTA "Music Under New York" series this year.
But not all the gigs for this native New Yorker require a Metrocard for entry. The chanteuse — whose smoky voice and guitar-driven pop-rock have earned her comparisons to Jewel and Sheryl Crow — has also performed at Webster Hall and Lincoln Center, among other venues.
Gelman plays The Bitter End on Monday night in the NYSongCircle showcase. If you can’t make Monday night’s show, Gelman returns to play the same club on Dec. 7. Download the folksy love song “Never Had You” from her self-titled debut album above or watch the video for the song below.
