The consistent feedback from those who have seen Heather perform is this: she has a message, an intention and the chops to back it up. Heather's 2011 release and her second full length album “Time & Pocket Change” is both deep and playful; the Portland Phoenix has dubbed it "Richly orchestrated post-coffee shop pop held together by pipes and lyrics well beyond her years." WUMB Boston Radio's Jason Moberg says: "This album is incredible, I'm blown away." and added three songs into their rotation. North Carolina's Encore Magazine says: "Time & Pocket Change can easily be categorized as one of the best of 2011 thus far." And a hometown thumbs-up comes from Northampton's Valley Advocate: "You can hear that it comes from the soul-- none of it reeks of contrivance, not even for a minute." As a new songwriter, there is already an abundance of press response, calling her lyrics "Terrific" (Huffington Post), "Poignant" (Portsmouth Herald), and "Powerful" (Rochester City News). As a classically trained vocalist who once aimed for the opera, there is an apparent strength and certainty in her voice that provides a solid foundation for the "unfettered" (Intelligencer Journal) vocal playfulness throughout her work. Heather’s title track and name of her debut album, Cozy Razor's Edge was voted by WRSI 93.9 The River listeners as one of the best songs of 2009, Worcester Magazine calls it “stunning folk-rock”, and Connecticut's Middletown Press says "(Cozy Razors Edge) highlights her nearly unlimited vocal range and ability to write melodic tunes that somehow ride the line between playful folk/pop and depth-defying soul." Heather is currently touring nationally in support of “Time & Pocket Change.” And with more than two albums worth of new material, she'll surely be touring for a long time to come.
