Heddy Fur was born Hayley Shula in the ultra rural town of Swanville, Maine on January 12th, 1984. From a young age she felt connected to nature and the spirit of song, as she would sing in the forest and along to her parent's records with a fake wooden block microphone. She began learning the piano at age six, and would sing and make up songs for her family. At the age of 9 or 10, she was exposed to R&B and New Jack Swing music. She would study the songs and spent most of her time singing along to tapes such as TLC, Janet Jackson, Mariah Carey, and later on Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Aaliyah, and Mary J.
By age 16, Heddy Fur was given a four track and began recording her own vocals over Hip Hop instrumentals. At 18 she recorded her first LP in a recording studio in Maine, just before leaving for the Bay Area, where she has resided (for the most part) ever since.
Since living in the Bay, Heddy Fur has worked on many solo and group projects, and is featured on a grip of Hip Hop albums. She is a piano teacher and uses her skills in piano playing to produce instrumentals for film and beats as well. Her deep connection to sound as vibration and the essence of life and expression lead her to get a Certificate in Sound Healing in 2011, and her next project will be an Urban Healing album with one track for each of the seven chakras.
