Heidi Burson
Heidi Burson
"It was all there; discovery, love, betrayal and loss, delivered with an attractive self-deprecating humour – and a voice to die for. ....she brought the sellout audience to their feet and had them dancing in the aisles." - Julian Allitt with JazzRadio Berlin (January 2019)
Nashville's own queen of soul, HEIDI BURSON has a story as an artist of shared human experience. Very early on, she felt the poignancy of the music of the great soul singers who came before her like Etta James and Aretha Franklin. These influences, coupled with her own life experiences and a generous dusting of wry humor, have helped to forge a voice and style that is uniquely fascinating. Her delivery is captivating. When Heidi sings, people listen.
"Her on-stage ability to control the room is evident by her captive audience. It’s one thing to be a songwriter and another to be a performer. Heidi Burson is both. Led by Burson's commanding and soulful voice - one with a range that rivals Jill Scott and Adele...The sound is massive; a rich musicality practically oozes off the record." - Kevin Carr with Behind The Set List.
To date, Heidi is an award-winning artist and songwriter and has released 2 self-produced full-length albums, Every Shade of Blue in 2012 and The Story in 2017 which features a powerful 12-piece band. You might hear Heidi’s music on AcmeRadioLive and Lightning 100 in Nashville as well as many other independent radio stations across the US and even as far as Berlin. Her single, "Give Your Love Away" has been featured on BBC Radio. She has received song placements on UK playlists for various businesses and future placements on TV and film are about to take flight. Not only has she secured bookings from the east to the west coast, but in true indie/unsigned artist style she has successfully produced two full summer tours throughout the UK and Europe. Her touring has seen her perform in various festivals, concert series and notable venues such as the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, the 100 Club in London and Ruine Senftenburg Castle in Austria.
"Totally new to us, Burson’s range is something that we will be arriving early to see in person. The deep and somewhat sultry tone that she produces will surely silence most any room that she is performing in. " No Country for New Nashville Magazine
Nova
Nova
Born half-guitar, half-human, Nova has always had a passion for music. A jazz-funk guitarist who draws inspiration from greats like Prince and Hendrix to compose and write original songs, Nova's music is full of colorful personality. Combining the grit of junk-yard funk and the class of smooth jazz, he would have you at the edge of your seat wondering what's coming next.
Kyle Taylor
Kyle Taylor
Kyle Taylor is a songwriter and recording artist from the Toronto area, currently residing in Santa Monica. The music is honest and poetic; the songs often manifest a kind of self-portrait, both musically and lyrically, as seen from the perspective of a character in a story. The music is influenced by a love for classic pop-rock song structures, melodies, and colourful vocal harmony. He will be releasing a new album entitled “Little Joy” with his band Death Party Playground this July
