"Heidijo is a wonderful new addition to the New Orleans music pool. A strong singer and a memorable songwriter."
A rare bird has landed among us, and if you have the opportunity to hear Heidijo, I hope you enjoy her singing as much as we did."
"It's not a matter of if, it's just when, she's that good."
Heidijo Music is driven by a recognizably unique voice. Heidijo's original songs can be best described as New Orleans R&B, a genre that straddles blues, jazz, and rock.
A new band is in the making which includes Heidijo on vocals and piano, Darryl White on drums, Zachary Wilson on vocals, bass, and guitar. All are seasoned professionals and talented musicians. Their shows consist of originals interspersed with select cover songs.
Heidijo is an accomplished singer, songwriter, and pianist, who has been endowed with a robust and unique voice. Raised on church spirituals and classical music, she broke from family traditions by playing and studying many genres of music with the masters from California to New York, Cuba, and France. She ultimately landed in New Orleans where the cities particular R&B style was a perfect fit.
A common statement from first-time listeners always begins with something like, “ I was shocked when she opened her mouth and out came this awesome powerful voice that just blew me away!”
In New Orleans, Heidijo has played at BMC, The Bombay Club, Buffa’s, The Circle Bar, Marigny Brasserie and RF’s to name a few, along with private parties throughout.
She recorded her debut album, "Magazine Street" in New Orleans with Louisiana producer, musician, band member, Zachary Wilson (The Universal Chrome, Zachary James, The Midnight Americans). The LP "Magazine Street" will be released in late 2016.
This has been an ongoing project. Shooting a series of live music videos at the Music Shed with a variety of local musicians.
"So Easily" with The Asylum Chorus.
"Honeytune" with Tom McDermott.
"Any Savior" with Ruby and the Rogues.
"Bakbone" with Juju Child, Darryl White & Zachary Wilson.
