Hawaiian born, Midwestern adopted and raised, appropriately depicts the cross-cultural inception of what has blossomed into the infused extreme musical crossover appeal and artistry of Heather Lynne Horton.
Self-taught pianist, violinist, guitarist, mandolin player and vocalist-by the age of 4, Heather was performing works by ear off of the family Heathkit stereo. From Simon and Garfunkel to Mozart, her intrigue of perfect melodies, harmonies and storytelling surpassed what her adopted family were able to comprehend of exploit; merely from their living room. Heather has mastered what the industry salivates for-“the total package.”
Not just another great singer-songwriter and certainly not just another pretty face. “...Men want her and women want to be her. Her hair, face, body are absolutely wonderful and so much fun to watch! More importantly, her musical talent and perfectionism on stage are unmatched...(Horton’s) electric violin and sensual voice are out of this world!” (Karen J. Layers, Tangled Thoughts).
Self-proclaimed and accused “music-obsessed,” Heather has spent her life formulating an evolution of excellence-creating music to visually, lyrically and musically appeal to the broadest cross-section of demographics ever possible. There is no age, sex, social relevance or music preference that can strip focus from her stage.
“...I have seen, on many occasions, first time audience members drawn in, held captive and then released with the look of a gushing school kid running to their friends to proudly and excitedly report what they have just discovered...It’s infectious-contagious...” (Mike Le Baron, 101.9 The MIX FM/US99.5 FM, radio personality, Chicago, IL).
This year, Heather has completed her solo debut CD entitled, “Most Of All”. From her catalogue of over 50 songs, narrowing the CD to a modest 10 tracks was a frustrating task, as “playing favorites” is an impossibility with the amount of passion slathered within the depth of each work.
“...Heather possesses two characteristics in combination with her extraordinary performance talent, song writing skills and stage presence...uncompromising professionalism and loyalty to her craft...and a strong desire to succeed while developing her art and skills...”(Scott Levy, studio owner/producer/engineer).
Look for Heather Horton showcasing across the country, seeking the ideal match for her ever-growing star!
“...Find Horton!...one of Chicago’s brightest, up-and-coming stars...” (David Kupcinet, Chicago Sun Times).
“...To sum (Horton) up in a few words: intense, emotional, intoxicating, mesmerizing, innocent-yet-worldly. Simply put, Heather is an angel” (Joe Stephen, Standing Ovation Entertainment).
Heather Horton...A biography by Trish Cook (Author of “So Lyrical”)
A force as strong as Heather Horton is nearly impossible to pin down. Every time you think you’ve got her all figured her out, she morphs into something even more wondrous and amazing before your eyes.
She’s the tomboy who beat the crap out of her brothers’ bullies in grade school, the homecoming queen and the sexy siren who allures fans by the boatload these days with her distinctive and seductive sound.
She’s the vulnerable girl who pours her heart out in deeply confessional lyrics and the supremely confident woman who slips clever double entendres into her songs at every opportunity.
And she’s the elegant violin virtuoso who could have her pick of symphony orchestras if only she so chose and the ballsy rockin’ chick who blends the aching beauty of her electric violin with the incendiary guitar riffs, pumping bass lines and mesmerizing backbeat of her equally gifted bandmates.
No doubt, this Hawaiian born talent defies simple definition because there is clearly nothing simple or ordinary about her. Quite possibly the only thing set in stone about Heather Horton is this: She was born to be a star. “I came out of the womb singing and dancing,” she says. “I knew from the time I was five years old that this is what I wanted to do. I was born for it, and I’m ready for it.”
Even if Heather hadn’t been a natural performer, it would’ve been hard to miss the signs of her vast talent. At age 4, she sat down at the piano and played effortlessly by ear; by age 12, she’d mastered the violin; in college, she held the coveted seat of concert master; was crowned Miss Lacrosse, entered on a dare, to go on through the Miss America Pageant; landed her first attempted singing gig in Minneapolis’ prestigious 15 piece Remy’s Orchestra band (never having sang previously in public); and finally taught herself guitar within one year in order to showcase herself and her songs, independently throughout the nation.
While these accomplishments might have proven a career pinnacle for someone less driven, it all merely served as a springboard to propel to Ms. Horton to new heights in search of her true calling. And thank God for that. Because Heather’s just not the classic-violinist-beauty-queen-dainty-finger-sandwich-eating-look-down-her-nose-at-you type. She’s down-to-earth. Gutsy. In-your-face. And she simply oozes sexuality from every pore in her hot little body. Make no mistake about itâ€"everything about this girl freakin’ rocks.
As a singer-songwriter, Heather’s influences are a crazy-ass conglomeration of artists that range from the divine to the absurd. “I did my first book report ever on Reginald Dwight,” she says. “I truly wanted to be Elton John when I grew up.” In Heather’s world, the inspiration of Reginald/Elton is complemented by the talents of Prince, Mozart, Peter, Paul and Mary, Billy Joel, Itzhak Perlman, Chrissie Hynde, Bonnie Raitt...and KC and the Sunshine Band? Somehow, this all makes perfect sense once you hear Heather’s genre-defying sound.
Whether she’s singing about love, loss or longing, Heather Horton leaves an indelible mark on her listeners’ ears and hearts. “My music is real and raw,” she says. Just like life, the songs on her debut CD, Most Of All, run the gamut of emotions, from the sunny and sexy In and Out to the overwhelming yearning of You’re Not Fit for the Devil; the cynical yet still somehow hopeful Chicago She Goes to the undeniable love and wonder of Heaven Knows. The CD includes a gut-wrenching rendition of KC and the Sunshine Band’s Please Don’t Goâ€" classic Heather: Both astonishing and unexpected.
Since their recent inception, the Heather Horton Band has been captivating audiences with their magnetic live performance in clubs around their home base of Chicago as well as nationwide. While people may walk into a show unsuspecting and unconvinced of the talent that awaits them, they most definitely walk out converted. It’s simply impossible not to. The tight, driving sound of the band provides the perfect backdrop for Heather’s sultry vocals, endearingly naughty lyrics and ethereal violin. In fact, watching Heather and her violin make sweet music together is truly the ultimate voyeuristic experience; it’s so intimate, so sensual, you feel like you’re witnessing an extremely private moment. But then you realize Heather is on stage creating a powerful connection with each and every audience member while she plays, and it makes you feel glad to be alive and part of her world.
More fearless, talented and beautiful than ever, Heather Horton is poised to become music royalty. She leaves us no doubt that life is meant to be grabbed by the horns and taken for the best damn ride possible. “Tomorrow we are dust. I’m ready to do this right now,” she declares, and everyone who knows her knows it will undoubtedly happen. The only question is how soon.
