A Personal Note From Heather: And so it was: The Lost Year. The video above marks more than 1 year from the last live show I was able to play with the full six-piece band, Feb. 7, 2020, in the video below. I would go on to spend most of March incredibly sick. With what ... I'm not sure, but the fever subsided and I joined the streaming/video-making community, alternating live performances with pre-recorded fun like this version of "The Animal Crackers Song" I did quarantined with my Partridge Family. There's a new page in the menu, "Quarantimes," where you can watch and listen to what I've been up to, and tip if you can.

ilyAIMY released a three-set live album on Bandcamp (check it out), from that show a long year ago. That night, rob's birthday, we were on fire, and the performances are some of our best. There's even a previously unrecorded song or two, covers of Tool, Portishead, a little Sade. With warm weather will come some chances to perform for you safely in person. Until then - stay home, but stay YOU. 

Heather is the reigning GRAND PRIZE WINNER of the $10,000 Bernard Ebb Songwriting Award. Heather's songs "Good Heart" and "If We Come Too Late" wowed the judges and landed her the win, along with a few free sessions at Innovation Station Studio! Mastering is DONE, with plans to release two vinyl singles in 2021.


Melissa Etheridge, Carly Simon, Janis Joplin ... and Joni Mitchell blended together and injected into a spark plug with curly black locks.”

Heather's Quarantine Valentine to you - IT'S HERE! Thank you to NO DEPRESSION MAGAZINE for spotlighting Heather's delightful ode to the hopeful homesteaders who filled their quarantine days with baking, home improvement and gardening while missing that special someone. Heather (who - in the spirit of the song - wrote, recorded, filmed and edited everything herself) set this as an Andrews Sisters-esque timepiece ... hoping one day, pandemic will seem that distant a memory ...
