Trey Anastasio Band trombonist/singer Natalie Cressman has released her latest solo album, The Traces EP, today. Cressman’s album is an emotional exploration through a fusion of electronic and traditional instrumentation techniques, finding thoughtful and intricately written compositions.

Natalie Cressman Announces Album Release Party In NYC With Omaha Diner

With The Traces EP, Cressman expands her creative reach into post-production, meticulously crafting soundscaped tracks inspired by R&B singer/songwriter Emily King, the Prince-championed vocal trio KING, and particularly Australian avant-soul quartet Hiatus Kaiyote.

In discussing recent single “Where We Started,” Cressman had the following to say, “The majority of subject matter for the EP is centered around the various musings that come at the end of a relationship – the different emotions that bubble up unexpectedly when attempting to move on. This song is basically about regret, and thus, probably the saddest one on the album.”

Cressman will celebrate the release of the album with her solo band during a show at NYC’s American Beauty on Friday, March 24th. Joining the event will be Omaha Diner featuring Skerik (saxophone), Charlie Hunter (7-string guitar), Steven Bernstein (trumpet), and Bobby Previte (drums). Tickets for that show are currently on sale and can be purchased here.
