Album Notes
Coyote Beauty is Heather's critically acclaimed debut album, which reached #19 on New Music Weekly's National Indie Chart and appeared on Japan's Real Country Top 200 in 2012.

Heather Lingle was born and raised in the small ranching and farming community of Early, TX. She showed an early interest in singing, dancing and acting, and performed publicly for the first time when she was three years old. The source of much of her creativity comes from a childhood tragedy that changed her perspective on life and ultimately the course of her pursuits, studies, and travels. She holds a Bachelor of Arts cum laude from St. Edward’s University, Austin, TX, and a Master of Arts from St. John’s College, Santa Fe, NM. After her college career, she moved to Montana and immersed herself in the performing arts; once again singing, teaching dance at a university and acting in local theaters. Heather bought her first guitar and started writing songs in 2008. Her music touches audiences both young and old, and she has an exceptional way of connecting with them. She has often been compared to Emmylou Harris. Heather’s songs will make you laugh, cry and raise your glass to Americana!

Heather Lingle’s first album, Coyote Beauty, was released in 2012, and was a collaborative project with her friend and producer, Bo Barber in San Antonio, TX. They took four days to record the nine songs on this album.

Producer’s comments
Sometimes, you get lucky, just being in the right place at the right time. For me, that time was a couple of years ago. I was hanging out with my pal Steve Fishell, who was conducting one of his Music Producer Institute courses over at Willie Nelson’s studio outside Austin. The subject of their study this time was Lloyd Maines producing some tracks for Robert Earl Keen and his band. One of the participants in the study group was a beautiful young woman named Heather Lingle.

Heather gave me a copy of a DVD she had of her band playing at some gigs up in Montana with her Dirt Dauber band. I stashed in my briefcase and found it in there several days later, played it, and decided I should have listened sooner.

We traded emails for a year or so; Heather was pretty excited about a recording session that she had planned, a chance to showcase her singing and songwriting skills. Fate, as it will do, intervened; a relationship with a guy went south, and the raw products of the recording session went away in his pocket, too. Bad luck for Heather, good luck for me. Because that set the stage for us getting together to record the record you have here.

Some have said that Heather sounds like Emmylou Harris, or maybe Lucinda Williams, and you could say, well, who could ask for more? Complimentary comparisons notwithstanding, Heather has a wonderfully unique voice, and the voice of her songwriting is also not easily cubbyholed into a single neat compartment. This record, Coyote Beauty is a great introduction to those talents.

The songs here offer different glances into her complex and sensitive observations of life. In the title song—Coyote Beauty— she’s having fun with a inquisitive critter of the desert, maybe wistfully wishing she could go with him on his adventure. The haunting and enigmatic lyrics to Green Van that finish the set take us to a more somber and serious place. In between, Heather tells stories about love—lost and found, and courage, and the determination to make today as good as it can be.

This is music to hear again and again, melodies that will surprise you, and lyrical messages that give us fair warning that a major new talent is here.
