|Originally from New Zealand, Natasha Bedingfield grew up in southeast London, where she and her siblings were raised around music By their teens, Natasha, brother Daniel, and sister Nikola had formed an R&B-based singing group. It didn't last, but the experience encouraged the Bedingfields to keep pursuing music. In 2001 and 2002 Daniel Bedingfield scored a hit with the single 'Gotta Get Through This', and the following year it was Natasha's turn.
Leaving university to sign with BMG, Natasha immediately started working on her first record. Buoyed by advance singles like 'These Words' and 'Single', Unwritten debuted at number one on the British charts. The golden reception for Bedingfield's rhythmic pop sound netted her platinum record sales and numerous BRIT awards.
It also set up her assault on the American pop charts, which began in July 2005 with Unwritten's domestic release. In 2007 the single 'I Wanna Have Your Babies' announced the coming of her sophomore effort, N.B. That album, however, was never released in the U.S. Instead, a reworked version -- half of N.B. plus six new songs -- found its way onto American shores as Pocketful of Sunshine in early 2008.
In 2009, Bedingfield married businessman/filmmaker Matt Robinson and began working on writing new material while vacationing in New Zealand. Bedingfield's third studio album, Strip Me, featuring production from OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder, was released in the US in December of 2010.
