When I overheard Heather Mae in a yoga studio last year explaining to the yoga teacher how she was searching for a recording studio I felt compelled to speak up. I’m so glad that I did. The album has only been out for a little over two months and has already received fantastic reviews from the press including this one from The Washington Post.
If that wasn’t enough to reassure what we already knew, the album has received 5 star reviews from every one of the reviewers on ITunes (currently 25 reviews at the time of writing).
This week I learned that One Year of Songs has also been nominated for Best Contemporary Folk Recording in the WAMA awards (also known as the “Wammies”), and Heather Mae has been nominated for New Artist of the Year.
It’s safe to say that I am very proud of my girl, and very proud of this album. If you haven’t picked up your copy yet what are you waiting for? If you want to hear Heather and myself sharing the stage together for the first time then you need to be at Jammin’ Java in Vienna, VA on March 16th for a musical extravaganza unlike any other. Heather will be sharing the stage with a number of her favorite artists including my own band Zero Mercury. And when I say sharing the stage I mean that quite literally. This one-off show will feature unique performances with Heather singing a song with each of the artists / bands, as well as two huge all artist / band performances. Mark your calendars and buy your tickets now before the show sells out!
