About Natural Twenty:
Natural Twenty is a local Calgary 7-piece band with a focus on groovy beats, hooky melodies, virtuous technique, and sultry vocals. Fred, Jay, and Rob have been playing music for the better part of a decade, playing in different outfits and genres. With what started as a blues rock project, evolved beyond that after meeting Rauth and Keath. Being music majors and teachers, they brought a wealth of knowledge that would only push the group further. Natural Twenty was finally complete in 2016 when Anita and Ambur joined the group, balancing the energy and offering their exquisitely, sultry, and powerful voices. That being said, we’re goofy, nerdy, outgoing, introverted, inclusive but most importantly, fun! Individually, we call ourselves outliers, black sheep, or weird – together we’re a Natural Twenty.
With the finalized lineup, they have since cultivated a sound that will have people dancing and grooving behind lyrical candor that resonates introspection and camaraderie. Their music not only has clear influence from such contemporary acts like BADBADNOTGOOD, Hiatus Kaiyote, The Internet, and generally, the brainfeeder scene but also decades of classic rock, blues, and jazz. The name is maybe obscure, but Natural Twenty is a D&D (Dungeons & Dragons) term. D&D is a live role-playing game normally played with as little as a pencil, pen, and dice! One particular dice has twenty sides and is meant to determine a myriad of different things. As you can infer, Natural Twenty is a dice roll landing on twenty, which is the best possible outcome, the luckiest roll, the relief, the confidence – Natural Twenty.
