Heather was born in Oahu, Hawaii and grew up in San Jose, California. After graduating from the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, Heather began performing internationally. She has entertained veterans and active duty military with the USO, sang with the Mario Celia Jazz Band in Germany, Austria, and Italy, and most recently has been singing for audiences in Shanghai, Beijing, Ho Chi Minh, and Hong Kong.
While singing in Asia, Heather met her fiancé and song writing partner, Brian Hewgley, a native of South Pittsburg, TN and graduate of University of Tennessee. Heather’s first single My Reason Why, was inspired by their meeting each other. The second single Can I Get a Volunteer is a tribute to Brian’s life growing up in Tennessee.
This year Heather and Brian began writing and recording Heather’s debut album of originals. The first two singles, My Reason Why and Can I Get A Volunteer are available on iTunes. The full album is due for release in 2014.
Outside of performing, Heather enjoys traveling and spending time with Brian and their three dogs.
