HESTON

Your favorite artist. Your favorite song. Your favorite place. The way that makes you fee...
Finally here comes an artist who is capable of bringing those feelings back. STORYTELLER, the debut album by Heston is an exceptionally well composed body of work.. Heston\'s got one of those instant classic voices, confidently sensuous and informed by the best side of mellow 70\'s soul. Nostalgic, yet very much his own.

With an equal talent for song writing and producing, his debut album release STORYTELLER, is timeless. Born on the island of Dominica, singer-songwriter Heston grew up with music all around him.. being surrounded by reggae, pop, classical, soul R&B and rock, music was commonplace and it is no surprise that radio along with a collection of his father\'s old records, would open the key to his soul and love for all types of music.. From Barbara Streisand to Aretha Franklin, The Bee Gees, Marvin Gaye, Elton John, Beres Hammond, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson(to name a few) each musician looped a thread into his soul and after listening to his music it is clear that he has been influenced by the best.

With a career in music that began in Atlanta, Ga, launched by a self-titled EP, he has defined his journey as a full-time musician, composer, songwriter and producer.. \"Creating timeless music has always been my ultimate goal\" says Heston with a poised yet humble demeanor. \" I want to leave the world with music that can be played for a lifetime.\"

A pleasant, easygoing vocal manner coupled with sexy stage presence has consistently yielded a ground swelling of fans and lovers of his music. Heston\'s first single \"Brand new You\" of his debut album STORYTELLER is currently in rotation on Music Choice\'s R&B channel... His song \"IF\" is the theme song on BET\"s ground breaking half-hour reality television show, Real Life Divas. \"If\" from his self titled EP became popular on SX satellite trough Airtran airways entertainment and such compilation as \'The Soul Lounge Vol. 1, Uk, This is Soul 2005, \"IF\" was also once listed as on of the most downloaded independent soul singles on ITunes.. \"Angel\" also from the self-titled EP closed the year 2003 as on the DJ Richard Searling\'s year end top 50 most played at Smoot FM Manchester UK.

Accompanied by a full band with foundational rhythms that stem back to his island and R&B soul roots, comprised of percussion, horns acoustic and electric guitars, his current independent album release, STORYTELLER, pull out all the stops.. Wit fifteen brilliantly composed tracks, tunes like \"Brand New You\" \"Distant Lover and \"Easy\" lead the album and is expected to capture audiences with its slinky lover\'s groover and feel good music..Fifteen grooves. Fifteen Stories. Fifteen repeats.. Fifteen Classics.. Ladies and gentlemen... HESTON

You will remember Heston the "Storyteller"
Heston has a lot to tell us on his debut album entitled "Storyteller". It is a full length album containing fifteen songs. Many people know Heston from the song "If" from his EP from 2003. All these people can satisfy their needs for more with Heston's new album.

Heston resides in Atlanta, but he is originally from Dominica. Coming from the caribean he couldn't escape reggae music. So it is very natural that Heston delivers the nice reggae song "Feel Like Dancing" on his debut CD. Another song to remind us of the sunshine is the slow dancehall soul song "Dreamy Eyes" featuring Angela Johnson. This song has the no woman no cry feel.

Heston however is mostly influenced by soul music from singers like Diana Ross, Aretha Franklin, Donna Summer, Michael Jackson, Al Green, Stevie Wonder and last but not least Marvin Gaye. Maybe that's why Heston wrote a song called "Distant Lover" on his album. By the way he wrote all the songs himself. It is a different song than the one we know from Marvin but you will notice the Gaye influences. Also the track "Brand New You" will remind you of the late great Marvin Gaye.

If someone is capable to remind you of Marvin Gaye he himself must be pretty talented and so is Heston. On "Storyteller" you will enjoy the funky opening song "My Baby". Other uptempo songs are the bluesy "Hello Sunday" and "Sunny Days". A remarkable song is "Good Morning America" about the war in Afghanistan. Sweet soul music is coming to you in songs like: Easy, No Way No How, Radio, and Brand New You. In the song "Like Sunshine" you will remember Otis Redding in the way this song is sung. Most of all you will remember Heston the "Storyteller". (TA)
