Natalie Chapman

Natalie is a successful and well-known Singer/Songwriter, Actress, Radio DJ, Lecturer, Music Promoter, Booking Agent, PR person and staunch supporter of South African Talent which she pursues through her company The Local Element.

Her blend of Country/Blues/Folk original music and dynamic performances are well sought after by a wide and diverse fan base.

“As a South African woman I am constantly reminded of the dangers that I face in a violent society, where mutual respect seems to have disappeared amongst our fellow citizens. I believe it is every person’s right to feel safe and protected in and out of their homes.   I am passionate about finding a solution to the devastating situation we find ourselves in and wonder and worry about the future of our children. As a musician I can contribute my voice to the pursuit of a South Africa where women, men and children can pursue their dreams without the threat of violence.  Where perpetrators are brought to justice and victims are treated with kindness and support.

I have committed my time and skills to the 90 days, 90 towns, 90 gigs tour where I will spread my message through music! I hope in some way to make a difference in all of our lives” – Natalie

Epic Foundation

The Gauteng-based EPIC Foundation was founded by Alta McMaster at the beginning of 2013. Having experienced various traumas in her own life, Alta has a deep understanding of how lonely and helpless one can feel if no-one reaches out a helping hand. Having experienced these situations in life encouraged her to provide that helping hand to others in the form of assisting with the empowerment of survivors of trauma.

Community Involvement

The project cannot be successful without the support of the communities visited. Individuals and Businesses can aid where they can with either logistics and/or organising performances, hospitality, sponsorships and/or Donations. Natalie is calling on the Press at large to support and promote the project. Together we can make a difference!
