ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Brought up by a rock guitarist father and poet mother as the second of four children, Heather Marie Philipp has music and lyrics in her blood and performing in her bones. Her love for theatre, dance, and music led her to Boulder, Colorado where she studied interdisciplinary performance with eclectic faculty, including renowned jazz artist Art Lande, at Buddhist-inspired Naropa University. After realizing the folk singer/songwriter identity common in the Boulder music scene at the time wasn’t quite for her, she took time off to follow her stronger jazz/soul leanings. After several years of writing new material, traveling abroad, reinventing old songs, and recovering from a debilitating car accident, Heather Marie Philipp has emerged with a handsome debut.

Expertly produced by up-and-coming composer and producer Paul Fowler, the Under the Apple EP is an intimate, original work of seldom heard breadth and depth from a debut effort. The album builds on a foundation of contemporary acoustic jazz the likes of jazz/pop darlings Norah Jones and Madeleine Peyroux, but takes agile strides into the soulful sides of art pop and R&B groove. You can find remnants of Billie, Ella and Chet alongside a little Mariah Carey, Bette Midler, and Natalie Merchant, pulled together with a freshness seen in the likes of present-day soul artists Amel Larrieux and Joss Stone. The result is a collection of tracks that show off a warm, sensual and stunning voice, a knack for inspired prose-style songwriting, and stellar musicianship from an up-and-coming producer. Together, Philipp and Fowler have created a jazz-inspired album that is listenable, current, and artsy - mature well beyond what you’d expect from a first-time-out.

give me another bite
Heather Marie Philipp's Under the Apple is seven deliciously juicy bites. Philipp has created something truly beautiful in this album with that voice and heart of hers.

Laurel Mattrey

Lovely, sultry, and great for Sunday brunch
This is Heather's debut album and I absolutely love it. The lyrics, written by Heather, are poignant, inspiring, tell a story and draw you in body and soul. Heather's voice is sultry, deep, and just very pretty. Listening to each song on Under the Apple is a wonderful trip down memory lane with stops at love, New York City martini bars and summer days. I'm so impressed by the professional accompaniment, songwriting, vocals and soul that went into making this album. Great work Heather!!!!

Sultry and sensuous, this lush and gorgeous soundtrack is sooo romantic! I will play it in my resturant to delight guests with her smooth delivery of some beautiful new music

Caroline

Luscious and versatile
This album is a sensual delight. Heather Marie Philipp's vocal range is both sensual and playful, both classic ("To Remember You") and fresh ("Courting Stars"). The poetry of "Clear Blue Sky" is inspired. Heather's voice recalls artists as varied as Billie Holiday, Portishead, Feist, Vanessa Daou, Fiona Apple, Sarah Vaughn, and Diana Krall.

Under the Apple
It's very rare when listening to a CD, each song supercedes the previous as "my favorite". The lilts and sweeps of Heather's voice, horns, keyboards, reprises paint an invitation into worlds of dreaming, driving, dancing, laughing, crying, being still and a wealth of unimaginable journeys. The artistry of accompaniment is exquisite and sets the stage for a voice that takes me away, takes me back and speaks to the moments in life that render being human a spectrum of everything under the sun. Listen for yourself.

Magically relevant
Heather Marie Philipp’s voice and lyrics take you on a journey that you’ll never want to end. Good thing “replay” is a standard function. This is one CD you can play over and over again and find relevance and the perfect supplement to any mood you’re in.

Brad Upton

Under the Apple
I was very pleased to hear the fine production of Ms. Phillips original songs by the very capable composer/producer Paul Fowler. It was also, I should say, a pleasure to be invited to play on two of these tracks. If you like soulful, sensual, and heartfelt songs that are sung very passionately, then check this out now!

With my very best wishes for much success and many more fine efforts,

Una Morera

Under the Apple
I got this CD and I can't stop listening to it. It opens with a monumental melody that just knocks you over and inspires you to listen to it over and over. Subtle, moving and haunting, Heather has got a VOICE! If you want to give something to remember you by, give this CD!

the poetic beauty of impermanence
There is a liquid, indulgent quality to Heathers voice. Its a celebration, full of layered feeling inspiring romantic, drifting images that are both sweet and bitter. There is real depth in each song, and the album as a whole. Its a tour through the mind and heart... poetry of impermanence. A lovable arrangement!
