Live at Boulevard two modern day troubadours Nathan McEuen & Natalie Gelman with their original songs and great covers. Half of the night belongs to Natalie Gelman who performs across the country tirelessly and just released a new album with producers Charlie Midnight (James Brown) and Mark Needham (The Killers) titled Streetlamp Musician after a song she wrote about street performing and watching New York City change over time.
Raised in the old West Village, NYC stomping ground of songwriting greats, Natalie Gelman grew up amidst artists and true bohemians. She borrowed a friends guitar at 16 and started writing songs on it immediately and began busking on subway platforms soon afterwards when she grew tired of pretending to be 21 to play clubs in the city.
Captivating tourists and straphangers alike in the subway, Natalie stopped even the most hurried commuters in their tracks with her powerful voice. She continues to play what she calls her favorite stage while also performing at the House of Blues, Webster Hall and festivals across the country.
Compared to Sheryl Crow, Jewel and Joni Mitchell, Natalie’s music is contemporary and timeless. She writes honest, heartfelt songs – responding to current affairs and revealing parts of her inner self with the world. “Not too much about her, but somehow about me & everyone in the audience as well.”

While growing up on the road and traveling around the world with his father John McEuen (of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Nathan’s first big solo performance came at 14 years old when he was asked by his father to sing a song and play guitar at the Olympic Bid Party for the International Olympic Committee in downtown Salt Lake City, on March 17, 1995… for over 15,000 people, his face would be on a Jumbo Tron and that he was opening for John Denver. It was this experience that would forever change his life…
