about

Recorded in rural Maine on an 1898 Steinway Model A in front of a live in-studio audience, this collection of inspired originals and renditions of blues and jazz standards promises to be her best release to date. In bringing a Dr.-John-meets-Dave-Brubeck sensibility to songs like “The Gumbo’s Too Hot” and embodying the very meaning of heartache in her Nina Simone-infused renditions of classics like “I Loves You, Porgy” and the stunning title track, Heather’s formidable talents as a vocalist, pianist, songwriter, arranger, and bandleader are on full display.
