Music is her life's passion and work. Heather's love of music began at an early age when she learned to play the piano and sing. She has never stopped learning and surrounding herself with great musicians and teachers.
A Toronto native, Heather moved to New York for a couple of years to further her skills as a full-time singer/songwriter. She worked with producer Steve Addabbo of Shelter Island Sound, NYC. Steve has produced albums for artists such as Suzanne Vega and Shawn Colvin.
Her song, "Just Her Ideal" was selected for the soundtrack "Songs for an old Century" written by Jose Rivera (also the screenwriter of the "Motorcycle Diaries") and distributed by the Velocity Theatre Company in NYC.
She has a piano performance degree from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto, a Master of Arts degree in English from the University of Waterloo. She is a member of National Academy of Arts and Sciences, SOCAN and the Songwriters Association of Canada.
"Heather's music showcases the enormous complexity and purity of her voice coupled with her honest and often vulnerable lyrics. Her strong songwriting ability captures the complexity and thoughts in our lives. She and her music are truly inspirational." -- Katharyn Marquez Bond, co-founder and executive director Velocity Theatre Company, NYC.
