Cascada to release Everytime We Touch
Cascada is making a sharp impression on the American charts with her hit single "Everytime We Touch" from the debut album of the same name. With its aggressive and energetic dance-pop beat, "Everytime We Touch" stands out from its Top 40 counterparts. Cascada's dramatic and passionate vocals add a fine polish to the package alongside DJ/producers, DJ Manian and Yanou, who provide the musical backing. "Everytime We Touch" has been impressing CHR/Pop radio stations across the country, climbing up their play lists, even on stations that usually turn down dance songs. It's a bright contrast to all the rap and R&B dominating radio, and music listeners are taking notice.

Cascada was born Natalie Horler in Bonn, Germany on September 23, 1981, and is of English descent. As she explains it, "As my parents had moved from England to Germany a year earlier, I grew up here with them and my two sisters and still enjoyed a very English childhood. My mother Christine is a foreign language teacher and my father David is a jazz musician with the WDR Big Band in Cologne. It is, of course, from him that I inherited my passion for music. He taught himself everything he knows from a young age, and has made such an enormous success of himself that I can only hope to achieve what he has today."
"When I was very young I would often do recordings in my father's studio at home, a lot of the time Jazz and Disney songs. I could never really say when I started singing. I just enjoyed it so much and I knew at a very, very early age that I wanted to be a singer. Also, I've always taken different kinds of dancing lessons, like step dance, jazz dance, hip-hop and street dance, and have acted in a few amateur plays as a teenager. As my father often directed the music of these plays, I also helped him with the vocal recordings and rehearsals. Next to dance music, I also love soul music and due to my father, I love jazz as well." When asked who she admires, Natalie answers, "I admire just about anyone who has a set of vocals to die for! Really, it doesnt matter who it is; if it's Alicia Keys, Mariah Carey, Lauryn Hill, Boyz II Men or just someone I happen to hear singing gospel music in church-- I'll listen and love it!"
On how Cascada came to be, Natalie explains... "At eighteen I started doing studio work. Here and there I'd record some tracks for different DJ's and that's how I ended up meeting Manuel Reuter (DJ Manian) and Yann (Yanou). We did a couple of songs together and they soon became quite successful."
And now their full album, also titled "Everytime We Touch", features 14 diverse cuts, as well as covers of Savage Garden's "Truly Madly Deeply" and Kim Wilde's new wave nugget "Kids In America." "I cannot wait to hear peoples reactions to the album!" says Natalie. "It´s loaded with really great, upbeat Cascada-style tracks including two or three ballads also. I'm absolutely in love with a certain track called "Another You" which Yann wrote and I sincerely hope the fans love it as much as I do."
Currently, Cascada has been busy touring America as well as throughout Europe. She's been impressing crowds and getting great reviews. As Natalie puts it: "It's fantastic that you guys like listening and partying to my music. I hope DJ Manian, Yanou, and I can continue to put smiles on your faces, and I can't wait to see you at the upcoming shows! Performing for such great fans is so much fun and makes all the hard work worth it!"
And with the success of "Everytime We Touch", may the musical good times continue!
