Hear it From Heather

Playing my final shows of this year has me melancholy. We've been choosy, performing very few indoor shows, and as the cold weather drives everyone inside, we decided to go on performance hiatus for much of winter. But we don't know how to sit still, so we'll be spending most of our time 1) arranging all the finalists songs for a new generation of young songwriters in the Chords of Courage Contest, 2) judging submissions for contests that helped change our lives as artists, 3) running away to recharge and record for a few weeks in January, and 4) BOOKING for a spring rebirth. I would love to get your venue, porch, studio ... hell, even your driveway ... on the calendar. Please EMAIL ME with booking requests and venue recommendations.

Stillness makes one miss the road. My wild heart is restless. But quarantine is also a safe place to just TRY things. Like this version of "The Animal Crackers Song" I did stuck at home with my personal Partridge Family. Or shooting and editing an entire music video myself for "My Kinda Quarantiner," which went on to win a slate of awards. At "Quarantimes," in the menu, you can hear and read how I spend my time. Oh! And I uploaded basically my entire catalog (including exclusives) to Bandcamp.

Thank you, NERFA!!!
