Natalie Smothers


I was introduced to the music of David Byrne at a young age, which probably answers most of your questions right away. This had a side effect of causing me to develop my own way of doing things, as well as a mind that’s still slightly off kilter. I mostly write to amuse myself, but it is my sincere hope that in doing so I amuse others as well. So far I seem to be doing a good job.

Born in Ft. Worth, Texas, I went to school in San Antonio and got an expensive piece of paper that says I spent a lot of time scribbling furiously in notebooks about things that were not being taught. For one reason or another I have lived in a variety of places in Texas (including Austin, College Station, San Antonio and back home to Fort Worth), Colorado, Wisconsin and most recently Chicago, Illinois. It is my deepest wish to one day live there again.
