Heidijo



Heidijo is an engaging dichotomy of sweet feminine sugar with smoky blues rawness. Raised on church spirituals and classical music, she broke from family traditions chasing her muse in search of her musical voice. From California to New York and from Cuba to France, she played with and learned from the masters of her craft, ultimately landing in New Orleans where the city’s unique R&B style was a perfect fit.

In New Orleans, Heidijo played solo shows at BMC, The Bombay Club, Buffa’s, The Circle Bar, Marigny Brasserie and RF’s and performed with acclaimed musicians such as Tom McDermott. First-time listeners were often surprised to hear such a big voice from someone so seemingly soft spoken.


Working with Louisiana producer/musician Zachary Wilson (The Universal Chrome, Zachary James, The Midnight Americans) Heidijo recorded her debut album, "Magazine St." at the Music Shed in New Orleans. Featuring members of Egg Yolk Jubilee, Jeremy Phipps (Saint Bell) and Michael Girardot (The Revivalists) on horns, as well as Keith Hajjar (Egg Yolk Jubilee, New Orleans Bingo Show!, The Universal Chrome) on drums and Zachary Wilson on back up vocals, bass, guitar and keys. Magazine St. straddles blues, jazz and rock, across nine original compositions.

Heidijo has begun performing with her new band, throughout the Southeastern U.S. Consisting of Darryl White (Tab Benoit, Chris Thomas King, Peter Novelli) on drums, Zachary Wilson (The Universal Chrome, Zachary James, The Midnight Americans) on vocals, bass, and guitar, Sean Riley on lap steel guitar, with Heidijo on vocals and piano.
