- Where and when did you first discover your interest in music?
I guess my passion for music and singing was put into my cradle.
I remember when I was 5 years old and had my first TV show, the
director and a few other people from the production team said:
“Natascha, you’re going to be an actress” and I answered: “No, I am
going to be a singer.”
2. What are your main ambitions in the industry?
My main ambition is to reach as many people around the world with the
message of love, I believe music is a vehicle, through which light is
distributed to even the darkest places, this is conveyed through my
album title “Ambassador of Light”.
I wanna spread hope, encourage people to listen to their hearts and
souls. I hope that my voice and my music will help to open hearts that
were closed on love before, to lighten up minds that are desperate,
give people a new angle, when they are going round in circles. I have
been going through a lot of challenges in life myself and wanna help
people with what I have learned so far.
3. When did you start writing your own songs/music?
I think it was when I was 20 or 21, but I often thought: “Am I good
enough for this?”
Sometimes I just had a really cool part of a song, but I just couldn’t
come up with the rest of the song. I guess a lot of songwriters know
what I’m talking about when reading this. The challenge is to keep
going and to not to be disheartened.
4. What would you say is your music career highlight to date?
Of course it was thrilling, when I was in the charts, but I wouldn’t
say it was when I had high chart positions. The most memorable
highlight was actually a performance I had in Spain in an
international festival, a few days after my father died.
First I felt overwhelmed to fly to Spain and perform, cause I was
devastated because of my loss, but then I decided to do it. Just
before I went on stage, I remember that I heard how I was being
announced and the man said “Natascha is here tonight with us, although
she has just lost her father. We are very grateful and happy to have
her here” and there was a huge applause and when I went on stage,
people were showing their appreciation, they went wild and showed how
much they loved me to be there with them, it was an open air festival
on a beach and I only saw hands as far as the eye can see. That was a
very emotional moment.
5. Who will we hear in your songs? What are your influences?
Well, there are some classical pop influences from artists like Celine
Dion or Lara Fabian, Disney-esque influences, singer songwriter
influences that might remind a bit of Sarah McLachlan or Tori Amos,
but you will also hear EDM in my album.
I’m quite a mixture – simply Natascha. I’d recommend everyone
interested to listen to my music on www.youtube.com/nataschahagenmusic
to get to know me as an artist, but the whole picture you’ll get when
the album “Ambassador of Light” comes out.
6. What’s the most important thing you’d want to tell people about
your current release?
As the title of my upcoming album “Ambassador of Light” already
indicates, it will be a musical journey into love and inspiration,
songs with huge, catchy choruses and reflective songs with an intimate
As to my song “Run”, it is about overcoming your obstacles and your
fears and having the courage to move ahead, even if it hurts, cause a
new life is waiting for you.
My song “Remember Me” is about an encounter between two soulmates, a
love on a soul level that is made for eternity.
