A Personal Note From Heather: First NO DEPRESSION MAGAZINE spotlights my ode to the hopeful homesteaders who filled their quarantine days with hobbies - now its an AWARD-WINNING MUSIC VIDEO!!! Thank you to the Northeast Regional Folk Alliance (NERFA) for honoring something I wrote, recorded, filmed, edited, costumed, everything ... alongside full-crew productions (including one from a "Voice" winner). And one of the judges, Ellis Paul (!!!), had quite a few nice things to say about it! Whew!

Whew number 2: I am now FULLY VACCINATED! The calendar is updating, and I would love to get your venue, porch, studio ... hell, even your driveway ... on it! Please EMAIL ME with booking requests and venue recommendations.

What did I find during the lost year? In March 2020, I was incredibly sick. I recovered and 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. At "Quarantimes," in the menu, you can hear new demos and find archived livestreams. Oh! And I uploaded basically my entire catalog (including exclusives) to Bandcamp.

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! Expect 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.”
