It isn’t just this woman’s music that carries a romanticism about it—it’s her life as well. Not many talented performing artists have a story like hers. This is a woman who may not have necessarily thrown herself full force into a music career solely, but she found her way there after serving is the US Armed forces, traveling the globe for seven years, and obtaining not only her theater degree but with the status as an ROTC graduate. Talk about busy. And yet, this accomplished woman has been able to find the time to dedicate to perfecting her debut album, “A Haze of Grays and Blue”.
While we could talk about how delightfully ethereal and “Norah Jones meets Barbara Streisand” Heather’s voice is, I would rather uncover her interesting story. If you want to hear Heather for yourself, you can do that by listening to her perform “Awake” here: http://youtu.be/XLzzzgOutRQ. If you want to discover more about her, keep reading.
While Heather was serving in the US military, she found herself not only headlining, but acting as commander of the US Army’s inaugural theater company. From there she honed her talents in singing, acting, writing and managing stages and studios. Though Heather spent an impressive amount of time serving in the military, it had never been any great secret to her that her heart belonged to performing. After all, she had been doing it with puppetry and church choirs since she was a young girl. And during her time traveling abroad and establishing residency in Germany, Heather had the opportunity to perform across countless stages in Europe.
Since her return back to the states and acclimating to a new life in NYC, Heather has not only recently released her CD, but also penned a musical entitled “Lipstick and Camouflage.” This women embodies everything that makes a true artists. Her soul is not tied down to one thing. She is a modern day Renaissance soul.
