Hailing from the enchanting city of Knoxville, TN, Rory has dedicated himself to his musical sensibilities and embarked on a fresh sonic exploration with his latest project.

With an extensive repertoire of 50 to 60 songs released over the past 5 or 6 years, Rory’s creative endeavors have led him to the birth of The Natalie Effect. Drawing inspiration from his previous work under the name Colored Days, Rory infuses his compositions with optimism and gentle melodies that provide a refreshing escape from the busyness of the electronic music landscape.

At the heart of The Natalie Effect’s sonic tapestry lies a fusion of genres, where summery synth lines, simple percussion, and expressive instrumentation intertwine to create a truly distinctive sound. Rory’s unwavering enthusiasm and devotion to his craft shine through in every composition, capturing the essence of his artistic vision.

With The Natalie Effect, Rory embarks on a journey that takes his music to new heights, incorporating elements of rock through the addition of fuzzed-out guitar and bass. This expansion of his sound palette brings a fresh energy and further depth to his compositions, captivating listeners with a blend of familiarity and exploration.
