Heather Green is a transplanted emerging artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia, originally from California. Since the release of her first EP One Year Happy in January 2009, she has maintained a local presence wherever she resides.
In 2008, Heather was spotted by Engineer/Producer Michael Bizar at Room 5, a popular Los Angeles listening venue, who offered to help begin recording her material. After a successful CD Release at Hollywood’s Molly Malone’s, she continued playing the local live scene (BB Kings, Ghengis Cohen, The Hotel Café) and recorded with artists like A.J. Croce (Cage of Muses) until her move to Halifax in August 2009.
“Green’s music elicited sighs of relief from the audience after a long day. Onstage, Green projects a much grander sound than her album suggests… grounded, grittier, and more fun.”, says Leilani Graham-Laidlaw(Dalhousie Gazette) of Heather’s 2011 performance for the In The Dead of Winter kick-off event.
Since moving to Halifax, Green has been able to land lucrative gigs and musical pairings, and was also featured in The Coast’s New Music Issue 2010. She also signed a music publishing deal with Daryl Landry of J. Adair Music.
"The east coast of Canada is known for many things; absolutely amazing sea food, incredibly friendly people, and a strong musical backbone that is woven through all aspects of their culture. It takes a lot of talent to thrive in that kind of atmosphere, and that is just what Heather has done. She now shares the stage with the best from the east coast… and she can do that thanks to a heart-wrenching voice, lyrics which we can easily relate to, and simple, soulful melodies which make listeners sigh and sit back." - Roger Lafierriere, The Vinyl Experience.
Beginning May, 2011, Heather will be recording a new full length album with Daniel Ledwell (In Flight Safety), whose latest production work includes Jenn Grant's newest album, "Honeymoon Punch".
