“With what seems like a permanent smile on her face paired with the faux, bright-yellow flower in her hair to complete her retro 50s self-described style of “liking everything at my grandmas house,” it’s hard to imagine that the word “depression” even enters Heather Evans’ mental lexicon. After listening to her newest record,Out of the Woods, which revisits her trying time through a life-threatening pregnancy and bout with congestive heart failure over eight tracks, it’s easy to see where she’s worked it out of her system.”
“Singer/Songwriter Heather Evans recently decided to team up with an indie video company to create a video for her song “Priceless,” after attending a conference about Human Trafficking in the U.S. Heather feels a video can raise awareness for the topic within the indie music scene. (Stay tuned for more on this project, and be sure to check out her profile for updates.)”
“They don’t who you are. You’re a princess, but your kingdom was stolen. The initial words of “Sweet Princess” by local singer/songwriter Heather Evans are meant to be words of affirmation—words meant to comfort the many victims of human trafficking.”
“With a focus on human trafficking, Evans music takes us on a journey of a girl who is caught in human trafficking. Referring the name of the album, Evans says, “You know how doctors say you are not out of the woods, you’re not quite healed up? There’s hope.” Her career started off writing “emo, heartbreak songs”, but notes a shift over the years towards writing music to help organizations. “I’m really passionate about raising awareness about human trafficking.””
“At 25 years old, singer-songwriter Heather Evans has already had her music featured on “Laguna Beach,” survived a life-threatening pregnancy and sung for President Barack Obama.”
““When I was 15 and writing, it was more me-focused,” she said. “But these days I feel like my focus has shifted to raising awareness and using my voice to help other people.” Evans has recently been using her music to promote awareness of human trafficking, playing for organizations such as Gracehaven, a shelter in Logan County, about an hour from Columbus, for young female human trafficking victims. “It makes it worthwhile when it’s not for your own fame and you do it for a purpose and actually help people out — to give (to) people who don’t have a voice,” Evans said.”
"My favorite thing about Heather is that she uses her music to try to bring justice into our corrupt world. She’s performed countless benefit shows and has worked hard to bring awareness to human trafficking. Did you know that human trafficking affects as many as 300,000 women and children in the U.S. each year?"

"Incorporating her humble and honest nature, Heather often sings of her strong personal faith. “Battle Scars”, which finished 2nd in Indie Rock in February on OurStage, carries a particular message of staying true to yourself."
“Heather Evans is also preparing to release her album For My Generation and do some tour dates. You can listen to her new songs on her MySpace site or visit her official site.”
“One doesn't spend much time with Evans before they are struck by her immense faith. Her music doesn't shy from life's issues, however. Her lyrics are full of searching and yearning.”
"Humility, maturity... these are not qualities normally attributed to 22-year-old singer/songwriters of Heather Evans' caliber. These attributes are accurate though."
