Natalie Prass lives in Nashville, and you can tell. Her eponymous debut album – released this month via Matthew E. White’s (a high school friend of Prass’) label Spacebomb – is a sure-fire sleeper hit of American white soul akin to Dusty Springfield. It’s music that conjures the great plains of the United States, and the comfortable, slow pace of the great outdoors. We asked her to fill in our Getting To Know You questionnaire, and she kindly obliged.
