Natalie Indya West
Indya (Meaning gorgeous person) was devised by Natalie Indya West in January 2015.
Natalie studied music & Dance at The Brit school of Performing Arts & Technology. A major focus within her BTech Diploma course was Micheal Jackson, and Fred Astair. Natalie performed in Musicals FAME, The Mystery Of Edwin Drood, Barry Manilows Copacabana! & Jack The Ripper. She had also danced behind various artists on the Brit Awards, as well as being in music videos for Busted, (Thats What I go to School For) and One Direction (Midnight Memories). Natalie furthered her Musical skills at CPA Romford, Essex studying for a professional diploma in Musical Theatre, and performed at professional Panto Cinderella & Jack and the beanstalk.
After being advised that she had a fantastic ROCK voice on stage, Natalie decided to kick off her own Music Career with Rock Band INDYA.
With a heavy influence of Led Zeppelin, Hendrix, Joan Jett, Stevie Nicks, Jane Wiedlin, Cyndi Lauper, Pat Beneath, Natalie set out to incorporate all influential styles into her own Taboo Rock n Roll Music. She studied Blues roots such as Stevie Ray Vaughn, Johnny Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Rory Gallagher & Eric Johnson. She then studied SKA and Reggae with influences from Bob Marley, ub40, Johnny Nash, Big Youth, Sister Nancy, Tanya Stephens, Madness..... she also integrates these trends into her records. Not only does Natalie songwrite, but she also produces quite a lot of her own music. One of her biggest fav Bands of all time was Ace of Base, hence the synth sounds in Indya's records.
Indya has gone on to gig with the likes of Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds, Space, EMF, Toploader, The Soap Girls, Dorja and has had the privilege of supporting Republica twice in the same year (2017) and again in 2019! Natalie has collated with and written for MC NEAT (Ignite It) & Sunny Andrea - Goddess(Peter Andre sister in law) on the side of her rock career as experimentations. Other pop songs include Supergirl, Chemical Reaction, Rich Boy, If you Don't Want Me, and Rewind Love.
Indya has played Festivals such as Camden Rocks, Glastonbudget, Girls That Rock, WildFire, RavenFest, ChoreFest, Weyfest, plus lots of live sessions on BBC Radio Kent. Indya are also regular players at METALWORKS in Camden. She also performed at Winterwonderland & had a Live interview on BBC Radio London. Indya has frequent plays on Kerrang!Radio, BBC, Metal Mayhem, Total Rock, Team Rock, Radio X amongst hundreds of other stations. Her latest Interview talks with Johnny Doom on Kerrang!Radio
The start of Indya’s Rock Career didn't quite go as planned, after being slung out & barred at her own gig in Stratford at The Cart & Horses Venue (Home of Iron Maiden) for having a podium dancer on one of the speakers! But its Rock & Roll, and what the venue didn't realise was at the time, this was part of the musical act.
Her music video "Tha final Line" features Johnny Doom from Kerrang!Radio and has had spins on Rolling Stone & MTV.
Indya has featured in powerplay Rock Magazine, Terrorizor Rock Magazine (with Record “Harder Faster” on the compilation Disc) Moshville Times, Daily Star, With Guitars, Planet Mosh, Devolution Rock Magazine and hundreds more. Her single "Insane Love" was bigged up by Celebrity Jodie Marsh in an online video. An essex acquaintance having lived in Romford for 3 years.
2019 saw Indyas record "Harder faster on The rock Compilation CD free with PROG Magazine on sale in WHSmith/ Tesco Etc. Indya attended the PROG Awards with friend Saffron Sprackling of REPUBLICA.
With a Glamorous Look, Big Curly Hair, sparkles, fluff and Leopard Print, Indya is certainly an entertainer. Her talent is of prowess. Indya is joined sometimes (mainly at bigger shows and festivals) by her glam rock chick girlfriends. Performing with Indya is one huge party!
