Violinist, vocalist, and composer, Natalia Steinbach began her violin studies at the age of two in Baltimore, Maryland. She holds a Bachelor of Music degree majoring in violin performance from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music.
After graduating from Oberlin, Ms. Steinbach went on to embrace a large variety of musical genres through performing, improvising, teaching, recording, and composition. She also found her love of singing with her debut as the lead vocalist in the hard rock band, Snake Charmer as well as with experimental music and performance art duo Naked Roots Conducive. She is passionate about creating and performing new and original music. Through composition, Natalia strives to bring classical, contemporary, and experimental music styles together, to form a new and unique genre that appeals to many types of listeners and desegregates the musical world.
Natalia Steinbach lives in Brooklyn, New York and continues to teach students of all ages and levels using the Suzuki Method as well as a combination of other methods. Natalia performs frequently as soloist and with various chamber groups and orchestras throughout New York as well as in other cities and states. In the past several years Steinbach performed frequently as a singing violinist and half of the musical and performance art duo, Naked Roots Conducive with cellist/vocalist Valerie Kuehne, as well as the experimental improvisational duo SLEEP TALK with percussionist David Grollman. She is currently working with violist/composer/soprano Allyson Clare in their WaterLynx Duo. Natalia is also in an ongoing project with actors Karim Muasher and Carrie Brown of Animal Engine. Natalia also composes and performs violin and vocal solo material as WaterLynx and enjoys painting, meditation, and writing.
Her musical writing is greatly influenced by classical music as well as a variety of other genres including experimental, metal, blues, avant-garde, and rock music. Natalia’s alter ego is WaterLynx. Natalia's lyrics are extremely honest and rooted in personal experience. Steinbach strives to create work that appeals to many types of listeners and desegregates the musical world. The WaterLynx EP has been described as “fierce” and although is difficult to pin down to a genre, experimental classical art rock comes to mind.
Natalia is an activist for mental health. She seeks to provide education and cultivate awareness concerning mental illness, addiction, and trauma. Her lyrics often describe her battles with depression, as well as other battles fought by close friends or family, with the intention of filling others with understanding as well as hope.
“My music is about surviving devastation through the beauty of creation. There is beauty in sadness, suffering, and pain as well. Once there is acceptance of these feelings and emotions, the beauty can be revealed. We do not need to push away or ignore tragedy or great loss or trauma. If we can accept it, not be enslaved or imprisoned by it, and eventually overcome the devastation, the true beauty reveals itself.”
