One of the first Mundartmusik artists to attain chart-topping success, Natacha is a Swiss pop singer whose career took flight in the early to mid-'90s and whose music remained consistently popular in the years that followed. Born Natacha von Moos, the singer from Berne, Switzerland, made her full-length solo album debut in 1992 with the self-titled album Natacha on the label NICY Music. Her second album, Orlando (1993), was her breakthrough effort, featuring career highlights such as "Nadisna" and the title track. Peaking at number 12 on the Swiss albums chart, Orlando was the first of three successive Natacha albums produced by industry veteran Tony Carey. The follow-up album, Stärntaler (1995), proven even more successful, peaking at number one on the Swiss albums chart (a milestone achievement for Mundartmusik [i.e., music sung in Swiss German dialect] at the time). In the wake of Natacha's chart-topping success with Stärntaler, she was offered a recording contract with EMI Music and proceeded to release a series of similarly popular albums: Venezia (1996), Imago (1998), Natacha (2000), and Kuss (2002). Some of her biggest hit singles from this period include "Banderas" (1996), "Sölli, Sölli Nid" (1998), "I Wär So Gärn" (2000), and "Sorry" (2002). Natacha then signed to Sony BMG for a couple albums, Gschpüre (2004) and Greatest Hits: Losla (2006), the latter featuring new as well as previously released material. While Natacha had remained consistently popular over the years, with all of her post-breakthrough albums (sans Greatest Hits: Losla) charting within the Top 20 if not the Top Ten, she experienced something of a comeback in 2008 with the release of N-10 and its featured single "I Fa di Uf." N-10 was her highest-charting effort in eight years and her first release on her new label, Universal Music, which had acquired the bulk of her back catalog and, in commemoration of her tenth album, went about reissuing her earlier albums. ~ Jason Birchmeier
