Heather’s slow and steady rise amongst the ranks of New York musicians is now gathering momentum like the slow and steady burn of the sun towards noon. With a bittersweet collection of original material that slowly envelopes the listener into her slo-mo world of layered soundscapes, she has charmed enough of her hometown over the past two years to sell out high-profile clubs in New York City such as Joe’s Pub, Tonic, Southpaw and the Living Room. Her tunes slowly slip into your consciousness, leaving you to feel like you’ve just driven down a lonely highway with a lover you’ve just met but never imagined you’d end up sleeping with night after night. WNYC proclaimed her “New York’s Best Kept Secret” and publications like Time Out New York, The New York Post, and The Village Voice all praise her music and continually recommend her performances to those wishing to hear live music. Rolling Stone France just gave her CD three stars and radio DJs at top stations are gently waking up to her lush compositions
At once sexy and innocent, romantic yet a tiny bit sarcastic, bold yet dreamy, Heather’s songs contain a duality of opposites that capture moments in time otherwise lost by busy lives and hurried heads. “I want this music, like my own career, to grow and last.” Guitars, strings, upright Bass, drums and, other sounds are layered upon her piano-driven compositions by incredible colleagues like Bill Frisell and the Tosca String Quartet. Each musical part uncovers mini-stories unto themselves, revealed after many listenings. Her intimate cover of the Cars “Just What I Needed” indicates a sense of play and sexiness, and has prompted at least two reporters to call her “daring.”
Like so many musicians who are coming out of the New York City scene, Heather’s songs teeter on a mix of Jazz, pop, folk and even a bit of country.
