    Born Ultra Naté in Havre de Grace, Maryland, United States, she displayed her singing talent at an early age. Growing up, Naté enjoyed a wide variety of music; she enjoyed listening to artists such as Marvin Gaye and Boy George, whom Naté would later say helped her become more open to being more experimental with her style and production of music

    She is best known in her home country for her 1990s dance crossover track, “Free”. She is also remembered in America for her team-up with Amber and Jocelyn Enriquez as Stars on 54 on a 1998 cover of Gordon Lightfoot’s “If You Could Read My Mind”, which was a minor mainstream American hit. It reached #52 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and #3 on the Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart. Though she has had club success in America, she has found the majority of her singles and, especially, album sales success in Europe.

    Ultra Naté began her recording career on a major label, Warner Bros. Records, signed through its British offices. Through it, she released her first two albums. Her debut album, Blue Notes in the Basement (1991) was created along with the Basement Boys and it featured the singles “It’s Over Now”, “Deeper Love (Missing You)”, “Is It Love”, and the gospel-tinged “Rejoicing

    In 1993, the alternative dance/house One Woman’s Insanity was released. Although it still featured the Basement Boys’ production on several tracks, this time Ultra found herself working with Nellee Hooper, and D-Influence. At a time when soulful house music performers such as Robin S and Crystal Waters were scoring cross-over Top Ten Pop singles, it was believed that Ultra Naté would score a similar level of commercial success. Mainstream sales however were not achieved even though “Show Me” received moderate mainstream pop radio airplay. Singles included “How Long”, “Show Me” (her first song to reach the top position on the US Dance charts) and “Joy”. However, neither release sold very well, and she was dropped from the label.

    In 1995, Ultra Naté contributed the song “Party Girl (Turn Me Loose)” to the soundtrack to the independent film starring Parker Posey. The single was commercially released by the King Street Sounds label.

    When Warner Bros. tried to push her in another direction, Ultra Naté left the major label and moved to the independent dance label, Strictly Rhythm. It was here that “Free”, her biggest mainstream hit, was released in 1997. The song, co-written by Naté, Lem Springsteen and John Ciafone while production was held by both Springsteen and Ciafone, enjoyed heavy airplay throughout the summer, not only in clubs, but on rhythmic and mainstream radio stations in America and Europe. “Free” peaked at number 75 on the US Billboard Hot 100. It became a substantial hit in the UK, where it peaked at number four in the UK Singles Chart, helping its parent album ‘Situation: Critical’ reach number seventeen on the UK Albums Chart. It was also successful in Canada where it reached number 10 at the Canadian Singles Charts.

    It was with this album that Ultra Naté’s greatest commercial success was achieved, particularly in Europe, where singles such as “Found a Cure” (No. 6 in the UK), and “New Kind of Medicine” (No 14 UK) also charted.

    In 1998, a new single “Pressure” was released internationally. Taken from the soundtrack to the film The 24 Hour Woman, it contained three club mixes. The original version of the track was found on ‘Situation: Critical” but listed as “Release the Pressure”.

    Her follow-up album Stranger Than Fiction, which was released in 2001, featured the production work of artists such as Attica Blues, 4 Hero, and Mood II Swing. Four singles were released: “Desire”, “Get It Up (The Feeling)”, “Twisted”, and “I Don’t Understand It”.
