Natalie Barbieri is a funk, rock and blues saxophonist, singer and composer who actively blurs the lines the greats have set to create a new soulful and exciting sound of her own. 

Natalie attended the Manhattan School of Music Precollege Program, and Jazz at Lincoln Center’s High School Program, Skidmore Jazz Institute, and the Berklee College of Music’s Five Week Intensive/Women in Jazz Program. She is a 2019 Vail Jazz Workshop Alumni; a program where each year, a dozen of North America’s most dedicated, gifted and promising young jazz musicians are chosen from a broad field of talented applicants, receiving scholarships to participate in the 10-day Vail Jazz Workshop in Vail, Colorado.

She has performed at venues throughout New York, the Tri-State area, Boston, and Colorado including The Vail Jazz Festival, The Cambridge Jazz Festival, the John Coltrane Festival, Smalls, Dizzy’s Coca Cola Club, Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Appel Room, the Berklee Performance Center, NOLA on the Square, and the Jazz Loft, to name a few. 

Natalie Barbieri formed her own band in 2021. This group of accomplished musicians play a wide range of music from covers to funk, rock and blues as well as performing her own originals. 
In 2022, Natalie formally joined Face to Face LI (founded in 2016 by musicians Joe Wasserman, Joe Siciliano and John Andersen). This eclectic group of skilled musicians not only play the legendary hits of Billy Joel and Sir Elton John along with various other classic rock hits, they blend it with a stage presence and showmanship that create a truly immersive musical experience.  Complete with two dueling pianos, a full rhythm section, screaming guitar, sonorous saxophone, and five brilliant vocalists, Face to Face pays tribute to two of the most influential piano men of the last 50 years. The fun never stops with this innovative and electrifying band that consistently performs to sold out crowds.

Natalie performs several times a week at various venues throughout New York, and the Tri-state area.  She is currently a student at Berklee College of Music Online where she is completing her Bachelor and Master’s degree in a five-year program.
