Making quality music and videos that I am proud of costs thousands of dollars each year.
For working musicians the challenge is how to support our creative endeavors
when our products are being distributed very inexpensively, or free!.
"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."
Steeped in rhythm-and-blues, jazz, gospel, funk and rock-n-roll: an old soul for modern times. She bends tradition, drinking from the roots, but concocting a brew both familiar and new. The lyrics are unruly, spiritual, joyful. The piano a brawler, a heart breaker, and a faith healer.
Heidijo was raised in Hobble Creek, Utah on church spirituals and classical music, but she didn't stay long. Her heart led her adrift; to study with masters of the craft and to learn the music of the world. From California to New York, to Cuba, and to France, she wandered chasing her muse before settling in New Orleans.
In December 2012 she recorded her debut album," Magazine Street" in New Orleans with Louisiana producer/ musician Zachary Wilson (The Universal Chrome, Zachary James, The Midnight Americans).The collection is a musical amalgam of R & B, gospel, rock-n-roll, blues, funk and jazz. The LP "Magazine Street" will be released in early 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.
