Rooted in piano rock, Canadian singer songwriter Heather Hill launched her sophomore album Leuty Station in May 2012 with a CD release party to a full house at the Drake in Toronto. The album features a collection of songs that speak to the courage of facing life challenges head on. Hill quickly followed the success of the launch with a Canadian tour which included opening for an acoustic Treble Charger show and receiving media attention from CFRB In the Studio, Rogers Daytime Toronto, CBC Radio1, reviews and local features.
Hill's voice has been compared to Kate Bush and the Wilson sisters, while her songwriting receives the honor of drawing comparisons to Tori Amos and a young Leonard Cohen. Heather’s music was showcased for film directors at the Female Eye Film Festival, and again at the TIFF Filmmaker Music Series. Heather recently signed on with a Canadian publisher to market her songs in Europe and parts of Asia.
Leuty Station is a departure from her first album, Listen (2005), which was produced by Steve Addabbo of Shelter Island Sound (Suzanne Vega, Shawn Colvin) and released in New York. Her guitar-driven debut effort was based on experiences in her life at the time – quitting her big high tech job, traveling the world and living in New York. For her second album, she chose highly regarded composer/vocal instructor/producer Orville Heyn (Telma Hopkins, Suzie McNeil, Mike Myers).
