Hartery Music House
Hartery Music House is an up-and-coming production company based in St. John's, and run by Natasha Blackwood. Natasha is a multi-instrumentalist, educator, writer, technician, producer and stage manager, and is known locally as a professional jill-of-all-trades in the arts. Hailing from Stephenville, she has a diploma in Recording Arts from College of the North Atlantic, an Honours Degree in Jazz Performance from St. FX University, as well as a degree in Music Education from Memorial University of Newfoundland.
You may have seen her around St. John's performing with Eastern Owl, Doctor Androbox, and Jazz East Big Band, as well side-work with dozens of other short-term projects, including arranging and conducting Shallaway Youth Choir, Ladycove Women's Choir, or in Memorial University's Chamber Music for Youth and Junior Band Week programs. Natasha is currently working on her first solo project, which is generously supported by MusicNL!
She owes a great deal of her success to the mentorship from the late and great Sara..h MacDonald Anderson, who taught her from a young age to "love the art in you, and not the 'you' in art".
