Issues by Julia Michaels - Natalie Joly Cover


April 9, 2019

About 7 years ago I started posting covers on YouTube, and through the years I started switching to Facebook, which then had to stop due to copyright issues. Then I went to Instagram because that's where I was getting the most hits... but that leaves me with only a minute for a cover! It just doesn't always feel right cutting the songs up, sooo due to so many people asking, I'm going to start doing more full length versions on YouTube!

Signum Music Company


April 5, 2019

Thank you so much to Signum Cables for making me these custom cables! I'm not big on bright colors, especially on stage. So when they asked what design I would like, I immediately asked if they could keep it classic black and incorporate some kind of metallic, and that's exactly what they did! I truly love these cables... they're handmade in Massachusetts, and have so many different cool designs! 

Check them out here!



You Oughta Know - Natalie Joly & the Reckless Hearts


March 14, 2019



- You Oughta Know -

I swear it feels like these songs are just never going to be done lol. The amount of effort that goes into writing the song, recording the song. mixing the song, planning the video, executing it properly, and then editing and color correcting it... it's a LOT. Don't get me wrong I absolutely love every facet of what I do... I actually thrive in the "holy shit how am I going to get all of this done!!" moments, and it just makes the final results that much more satisfying!

Anywho, enough rambling. Here is You Oughta Know. A song I wrote YEARS ago and have recorded and re-recorded and re-re-recorded countless times to get it just right... and I couldn't be happier with the final result! 

Thank you to everyone involved in the making of You Oughta Know. I can't express how lucky I am to have such an incredibly hard working and talented team.
Details below.

With love,


LA-LA Land

Los f*%&ing Angeles
I gotta say... it's just as amazing as everyone says. I'm still not staying here indefinately, because I know this may come to a shock to some of you but it is HELLA (that's a word right?) expensive here and I don't have a job out here lol so I will be definitely going home to gig and make some dough!
But for the time being I absolutely LOVE it. I'm not much of a city vibe person so I love how relaxed it is here compared to Boston, not to mention all the fun stuff constantly going on and the amazing creative souls I've met. 
Boston will always be home... but this is a close second!

Take a look at some pics from my first month here...

Road to LA

February 20th, 2019

So since I packed basically my entire wardrobe, all my music equipment, and needed wheels in LA, the only logical conclusion was a cross country road trip!!!

My amazing boyfriend Steve offered to take the trip with me (thank you, thank you, thank you!!) and we had a blast! Some pics below of the trip...


Brighton Music Hall - Round 2

January 19, 2019

Brighton round 2! What a fucking night. I can't say thank you enough to everyone who braved the storm to come out and see us. We've spent so much time in the studio recently I almost forgot what it felt like to be on stage with my boys!!

As some of you may know, I just landed in LA for a few months... stay tuned for some exciting things coming up!!

Xo, Nat


January 1, 2019

OMG how have I not posted on the site in 3 months????? Where the hell is the time going?!

I've been insanely busy gigging & working in the studio... I guess I've officially turned into a cellar dweller lol

I hope all of you had an AMAZING New Years! I got to spend mine with some of my favorite people! My parents, Steve (boyfriend), brother Mike, Mala (brothers gf), Squid & Julie (Squid's girlfriend/girl behind the camera at all of our shows.

I was hired by a friend to play their party, and they let me take all my people! It was SO much fun. I don't get to party with my parents often... I think I need to make it more of a regular thing lol

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season as well, and wish you all the best that 2019 has to offer! I can tell it's going to be a good one!!

Xo, Nat


October 20th, 2018

I've been pretty quiet about it because we've been super busy and I haven't known exactly what to say about it, but we've been spending a LOT of time in the studio these days. Not only finishing the new song of the video we just shot, but I've decided to just say fuck it and record another album.

Not sure what I'm gonna do with it just yet... but it's been so long since I've recorded a full album, my soul was just dying for it. For those of you who don't know, I've released 3 albums in my life... 2 of which can't even be found on the internet since they were sold out of brown lunch bag in my high school cafeteria lol

I'm so excited for you guys to hear these songs... whenever that may be. I'll keep you posted on release plans once I figure them out somewhat.

Love you all.

Another check off the bucket list! Our first out of state music festival... Musikfest in Bethleham, PA!

Unfortunately our bassist BJ wasn't able to make it... and that left me having to explain to many confused 60 year old ex-musicians how backing tracks work and why they can hear the bass but can't see a bassist... MAGIC!! lol

Our first out of stater was definitely a success! The stage and sound crew we worked with were so professional and helpful! I'm SHOCKED and very happy to say I didn't even forget anything!!! Anyone else have travelers anxiety? Heads up, it's WAY worse when you're traveling for work lol

Looking forward to our next road trip! I didn't know just how much work I'd be able to get done on the ride lol main priority of the ride was to get my T-shirts up on the site... almost there!!!! Keep an eye out!



July 20th, 2018

What a night... and a HUGE success!!! Playing Brighton Music Hall was a big check off the bucket list for me... it was our first national venue! And it went so amazing... a few technical difficulties which is always as to be expected, but overall I'm SO happy with how we sounded. We worked our asses off for this show! Turns out that night was the highest ticket sales of the summer! Thank you to our good friends in The Ultra for having us, and to Self Portraits for doing a kick ass set as well! 

Check off the bucket list! Now the question is, what's the next check gonna be?! Stay tuned for some really exciting stuff coming up...


HUGE thank you to Gabby Baglieri & Julie Worthen for all the amazing photos!!! 


Natalie Joly & the Reckless Hearts

July 3, 2018

I swear, for a minute there I thought this day was never going to come. I haven't released any new originals in THREE YEARS. What the hell?! Time flies... so many projects started, changed, scrapped, started again, scrapped again... the last 3 years have been some of the worst times of my life, as well as some of the best. I can now confidently say it was all worth it! I am SO happy with this product. We have put our heart and soul into this song, recording & video. Sometimes when you're in the process of making something, it's hard to appreciate the time it's actually taking. Please take a listen and share if you so desire... A huge thank you from the bottom of my heart to my band, my brother, the video producers, and all my friends, family, and fans that are so incredibly supportive.

This is just the beginning.

This show was AMAZING!!! The stage at Wally's is so dope and the sound and lights is unreal. We've played here once before and I was dying to get back.

Throwback: Strewnshank


We're SO close to finally releasing our first song in over 2 years! Oh my how time flies....

Been looking through all sorts of old pics from our previous projects recently. Seems like another life ago!

These are a few pics from our recording days at a studio called Strenshank in Charlestown, MA. Pretty sure they've changed their name, and their building... but that studio will always have a special place in my heart. All 4 of my original songs that are online right now, Thunder, Unintentionally, That Would Be Alright, and Before We Know, were all done at that studio. 

Stay tuned!!! New tunes comin' atcha very soon.... Xo, Nat

Music Drives Us


Music Drives Us is an organization of my friend Ernie Boch's, that I am so honored to be a part of. Music Drives Us gives back to the music and arts comminuty in huge ways like giving schools grants, instruments, and funding projects that schools otherwise wouldn't be able to afford. Ernie has asked me to be a part of this amazing organization by modeling the bracelets he sells as part of fundraising. These specific bracelets, with onyx beads and a silver pick, are actually designed and made my hand by my sisters and I. Did you guys know I was in the jewelry business as well? Lol, a woman with many hats! 

Anyways here are some pics from our last shoot, that were used to advertise these bracelets online, and in the Boston Herald, as well as the Improper Bostonian! Here are some of my faves.... and thank you as always to Rebecca Carr for taking these amazing photos!!!! <3 <3 <3

#throwback // Meeting Joe FUCKING Perry!!!


I have no idea why it's taken me so long to post about this... probably because it takes me FOREVER to get pics off my phone... anyone else?

Anyways; as I'm sure some of you may know, Aerosmith is my all time favorite band, and this past December I was unbelievably lucky enough to meet Mr. Joe Fucking Perry!!!! (Guitarist of Aerosmith)

It was SO surreal!!!! 

Just in love with this outfit

He was SO nice! And put on an amazing show, in support of my friend Ernie's organization, Music Drives Us. 

Thank you Ernie and Paul for getting me backstage to meet my own personal guitar hero!!! (They didn't have much choice, I was getting back there one way or another! :p )

Such an unforgettable night!


My brother Mike & Joe... Mike almost passed out

Mr. Paul Geary: my wonderful friend, and Joe Perry's manager!

Ernie & Alex Boch... love these two!

I'm not the best concert photographer, but I tried!!!

I didn't want to come home...


Caribbean Cruise 2018

What an unforgettable week... 

I am so lucky to be surrounded by such wonderful people! My good friend Ernie Boch Jr. invited me to go on a cruise and be the live entertainment every night. It was AMAZING!!! We went to Antigua, Nevis & St. Barts. It was SO GORGEOUS!!!

I even got to bring my cousin Gabby along with me (you can thank her for all the pics!!) 

Thank you Ernie for the trip of a lifetime!! I owe you forever!!


Boston Fashion Awards


Always love playing the Boston Fashion Awards! This is my 3rd year playing, and was by far the best! Finally on stage with my boys playing my own music! 

Thank you to everyone that runs this awesome event, and for all the friendly faces after the performances!

Breakaway - Danvers, MA 


My new favorite venue! Breakaway in Danvers, MA ... fits about 500 people and has such a great stage layout as well as sound and lights. I'm so happy they asked us to play this show!!

The house was packed, and it was a really cool experience for me. As a kid my dad always told me, "you know you have a great song when people just can't help themselves by to tap their foot along to it." Last night was the first time I was really in a showcase type format with a full room of people, none of which knew my music, and I could just watch their reactions and get some feedback. At first everyone was sitting down at tables and I was thinking to myself that it was going to be such an awkward show... but by the end of the first song everyone was out of their seats standing on the dance floor right up front. The best part: their heads were all bobbing simultaneously to the beat of every. single. song. It felt incredible. Looking forward to spreading my music to as many people as will listen... 

It's all about that ROCK N ROLL
Love my band! We were asked to play at the 2017 Annual Halloween Gala at the Boston Convention Center. It was an amazing fashion show held by our friend and designer, Samuel Vartan. We had a blast learning some old school covers for this gig and really getting to rock out!

PS. my "costume" was actually an outfit my older sister used to wear in high school back in the early 2000s. Amazing.

I just love this track suit... that's all.

Guitar Center

I grew up in this place, and still live here part time lol. There's a never ending list of things I'm running out of that I can't go without. That means a trip to GC. Last week I played a private party, and all of the little kids each wanted to keep one of my picks... they took all that I had! Off to GC...

Family A-Fair
I've been so fortunate to grow up with a vacation home up in Fryeburg, ME which happens to be the home of the Fryeburg Fair that we go to every year! It's HUGE and so much fun, especially now with the little kiddies! Seriously, HOW CUTE are my nieces?! 
I'm so proud to be a suporter of Love Your Melon, which is a company that donates 50% of what they make to help children with cancer. So go buy a hat!!! They're SO cute!!! 

Love Your Melon

We'll miss you, Tom Petty


Some days are good days, some are bad. Yesterday was a bad day. Tom Petty passed away, way, way too soon. Tom Petty is one of my all time biggest influences, for so many reasons. The biggest one was his songwriting. He had the most impressive way of taking 3 chords, and making a masterpiece out of it. His lyrics were genius, and his melodies get stuck in your head like no one else. Right behind that was his unapologetic mindset of just not giving a fuck. Always did was he felt was right, no matter what anyone said. He was such a hard worker. He was so kept to himself and never bragged, but the reason he was as successful as he was was directly because of HIM and no one else. He created his own destiny.

I'm really heartbroken about losing one of my all time heros. I've never really gone through it before. I mean, I've been preparing for Steven Tyler to croak for years... don't get me wrong, I will be DEVASTATED, but let's be real the guy isn't in the best shape these days lol. This one came out of nowhere...

We need more musicians like Tom Petty. All he cared about was the music. Not the success, not the attention, not the fame. Just the music. And it showed, and it payed off with how many millions of people he touched with his gift. We need more real music. Real musicians. Real production. Real effort. Real passion. 

I'm determined to bring that back the best I can. I believe in real music, in real rock and roll, and the feeling it's been bringing people for so many years. There's a huge void in the industry right now. And now with Tom Petty gone, the void just got much bigger. We will miss you Mr. Petty, keep singing to the angels!

Boston Freedom Rally 2017

So if you don't know what the Freedom Rally is, the more widespread name used is "Hempfest"... and it was mighty hempy! We had a blast playing for everyone... they were all so excited for all the bands. Amazing vibes. 

We threw in some covers for the stoners out there... What I Got by Sublime, What's Up by 4 Non Blondes, and Piece of My Heart by Janis Joplin. The crowd that migrated over for Janis was UNREAL. Will be posting a video of it when we have a day off to put it together!!

Much love to everyone that put this show together, and that chose to have us back for the 2nd year in a row!

Middle East



I've always wanted to play the Middle East Downstairs. For anyone who is not familiar with the Boston music scene, this is THE venue to play for an unsigned artist. 

I'm so happy to be on stage with the guys, allowing all of us to gain experience playing with one another. It's something you can't practice without actually just DOING IT. 

More shows coming up!

NEXT: Boston Freedom Rally, September 17th, 3:30pm on the Parkman Bandstand Stage. BOSTON COMMON! Come say hi!!



Our first show was a HUGE success! It was such a great opportunity to show all of our friends and family what we've been working on for so long! 

It feels so good to finally be on stage with these guys!! 

Click here to see a live video of us playing my original song, Thunder at the show!!!

We've been working our asses off getting this set ready to start playing out and the day has finally come! 

Can't wait to see all of our wonderful family, friends, and fans that have already bought tickets! If you'd like to come please contact me here !!!


If you know ANYTHING about guitars, you know Les Paul's are the Holy Grail of all things rock and roll (...in my opinion!) Not only are they the sexiest looking guitars around, they sound phenominal! There is no such thing as a bad Les Paul.

I've been keeping my eye out for a while now and I saw a friend of mind post this beauty.... HAD TO HAVE IT!!! Right color, right make and model, right price... MINE!

I don't consider myself a "guitarist" persay, but if I'm gonna be on stage playing in front of any crowd of people, I best be playing a real axe!

Blue Ocean Music Hall
Salisbury, MA
April 1, 2017

This month I fulfilled one of my personal goals of playing a live show at the Blue Ocean Music Hall in Salisbury. I first was introduced to this venue about 4 years ago when my friend invited me to come to a concert to see Peter Wolf. I thought the venue was just so chill and cool but also unexpected in the middle of a beach community, literally right on the ocean, with such an awesome stage set up... I just had to play there.
If you haven't heard of AeroChix, they're THE Aerosmith cover band out of Boston, which is cool being that Boston is the hometown of Aerosmith. But whats even cooler is that they're all CHICKS (hence the name).  I tried out to be their interim lead singer a few months ago, because really, how could I not? Given my shameless obsession with Steven Tyler, my soul would just have it no other way.

The Joe Perry to my Steven Tyler

So really, two life goals were achieved: 1. Blue Ocean Music Hall and 2. Pretending to be Steven Tyler, on stage, in front of a crowd of people. I try to take a step back every now and then and mentally check off little goals I've reached a long the way. It really helps keep me motivated to keep moving forward.

And just as an added bonus, I fucking LOVE the ladies of AeroChix and I'm SO fortunate to have become friends with them and been given this AMAZING opportunity.

Thanks for stopping by my site !

Supporting the Arts
My cousin is so talented!!

I was fortunate enough to go to high school with my cousin/best friend, and I've seen her since she picked up her first camera to now... a senior in college graduating from Leslie University with a degree in photography. (SO proud!!) 

The other day was her senior showcase where she showed her project that showcased another cousin of hers, who goes by "Timmy Sneaks" (check him out on instagram @timmysneaks!!!) He's an increibly talented artist, and she took incredible pictures of him doing what he does... I love it! 

Another shot from the show! 

Duck faces only :p

Renee with Mr. Timmy Sneaks himself!

My favorite shot from Gabby's show!!

<3 <3 <3


Ben and I had such a fun time in LA!!! This is only the third time I've ever been. We went for 5 days, stayed with our wonderful and gracious friend Paul Geary, and then my amazing aunt and uncle's hosue at the end. Always love spending time with loved ones while traveling!!!

Paul's condo had the best view EVER. I took way too many pics, it was hard to choose the best one (far left!). 

The two pics below that are Ben and I playing photog/model with Paul's guitars... we had way too much fun with that. Oops.

Both pics on the right are from our quick visit to Santa Monica Blvd... I have the strongest memories walking on that boulevard. My first trip to LA was when I was 9 with my mom and sisters to visit my incredible cousin Jimmy. He lived walking distance from there in a beautiful apartment. A few years ago he passed away from a horrible, tragic accident... there is no place on this planet that I feel him more than standing there looking out on those waves. Thanks, cuz for the amazing trip and memories. They warm my heart <3

Can't wait to get back to LA, ASAP. Oh, and thank you to my wonderful boyfriend for being the best travel buddy!!!

At-home Studio

I've been so fortunate to have a spcae in my home to house and build my own studio. My brother and I have been recording down here since I can remember. Over the last couple years I've painted all the walls, redecorated, found new posters and memorabelia, etc. In addition to being a creative space for me, it's now one of my favorite photoshoot spots!

Thanks to my amazing couin Gabby for the pics!!!

Guns n Roses

This summer I was lucky enough to see Guns N Roses live at Gilette stadium not once, but twice! It was an INSANE show. I've been to many in my life and the second night is absolutely in my top 5 of all time. Axl... no comment. Slash... just marry me.

This top is from a vendor outside that show... I cut the neck off and put it in my closet!
