Hear it From Heather

The weather may be wondering if it is truly spring, but I can feel it. Unlike the overzealous daffodils, racing to bloom and meeting a swift, 29-degree chill, I and my bandmates have bided our time. We were choosy about our gigs and projects, waiting for the last of the storms to blow over. And now ... we are ready for full bloom. Tour dates abound. And now that we are prepared and ready to add even more, 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.

All this stillness made me restless, but quarantine was 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.

But 7-hour drives to play historic opera houses before driving south for studio session work after a stop in Philly to play a concert series ... Hell yeah, don't mind if I do.
