“With a powerfully dynamic voice and a riveting live band, Heidi Burson recalls the best of soul, motown, jazz, and RnB with impressive fluidity. She is an absolute force both on and off the stage. Hard-working, professional as they come, and an extraordinarily gifted performer, Burson is perfectly poised for a breakout at any given moment. She may be one of the most captivating and feel-good shows you'll ever see.”
— Acme Radio Live
“Maybe it’s her roots in Nashville, the capital of Country Music, but Heidi Burson knows how to sing a good song.It was all there; discovery, love, betrayal and loss, delivered with an attractive self-deprecating humour – and a voice to die for.The latest in an impressive line of American artists to grace JazzRadio’s the Orange Room stage at The Ellington Hotel, she brought the sellout audience to their feet and had them dancing in the aisles.”
HEIDI BURSON is a Nashville staple who has deservedly carved out a spot for herself in the soul music community here performing regularly at City Winery, Acme Feed & Seed, Rudy's Jazz Room, Eddie V’s, Hall’s Chophouse, Assembly Food Hall and has been featured at Bluebird Cafe, The Listening Room, 3rd & Lindsley and Sunday Night Soul at the 5 Spot. She draws her inspiration from the likes of Aretha Franklin, Jill Scott, Ray Charles and Carole King to name a few. 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.
To date, Heidi is an award-winning artist and songwriter and has released 2 self-produced full-length albums, Every Shade of Blue and The Story which features a powerful 12-piece band. You can hear Heidi’s music on AcmeRadioLive and Lightning 100 in Nashville as well as many other independent radio stations across the US and abroad on Jazz Radio Berlin. Her single, "Give Your Love Away" has been featured on BBC Radio. She is currently releasing new singles with an emphasis on poignant lyrics and beautifully arranged string sections. Not only has she secured bookings from the east to the west coast, but in true indie/unsigned artist style she continues to successfully tour throughout the UK and Europe.
