ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Let me tell you all a little story...

My name is Heidi and I'm embarking on a new chapter in my life through this new full-length album I'm calling "The Story." It's a story about tragic loss, healing, self-realization, a newfound respect for myself and a transition from broken-hearted to open hearted; all which lead me down a path to find my purpose and feel love again.

I took a leap last year and began pursuing my passion as a livelihood. I've had the opportunity to tour across America and the pond to the UK. I've gained new experience within my craft and I've had the privilege of working with some of the most talented musicians this world has to offer. Some of them will be featured on this record because they have had a significant hand in shaping my sound and inspiration.

These songs will include my own creations as well as some collaborative efforts with other songwriters. The deepest parts of my heart are in these lyrics and notes and I want to share with you in the hopes you'll feel connected to them, too.

I don’t even know where to begin when it comes to thanking everyone who has supported me on this musical journey in creating this record. To the generous people who donated to the Kickstarter campaign, to my wonderful family, friends and musical colleagues- you’ve all been supportive and rooting for me since day one and I am forever grateful to you.

I’ve been fortunate to continue to see fruits of my labor as an independent artist performing at home and abroad and can only hope doors will continue to open and create opportunities for me to share my music. I felt compelled to title this album “The Story” because my life has been unfolding before my eyes in a way I didn’t know how else to describe. Somewhere along the road after many disappointments, heartache and loss I found myself in my music and lyrics. I’ve grown to truly love myself for who I am and in return can feel real love from others. It’s a long journey that is totally worth the ups and downs. To my parents, Phil and Denise Burson, I give a special thank you for cultivating music in my life from an early age and teaching me to be proud and never stop striving to do what I love.

Music is a language we can all understand regardless of our backgrounds and my dream is to help bridge the gap between people, generations and cultures with the love it creates. I look forward to seeing what the next chapter in my life holds and I hope you’ll enjoy “The Story” for years to come.

Official bio:
Two years ago, opportunity knocked and Heidi Burson just happened to answer the door. While performing at Nashville’s Hard Rock Café, an intern from the Bobby Bones show videotaped Heidi singing her version of Prince’s Purple Rain. Completely blown away by Heidi’s incredible vocals, the intern did what all career hungry interns do by sharing this video with the show’s producer! The very next morning Heidi was contacted by the Bones show and invited to perform on air. During her performance, Bobby Bones himself was so astounded from Heidi’s vocal talent that he described her as, “better than 70% of the people who come in to perform and have record deals."

Following her appearance on the Bobby Bone’s Morning Show, Heidi took a leap of faith, quit her full time job, and began touring the U.S. with some fellow musician friends. Originally from Ohio, Heidi has been developing her soulful sound with her Nashville-based band for the previous decade and has toured across America in the last couple years. This past June, Heidi crossed the pond to join a talented group of musicians on the Great English Pub Crawl tour and raised funds for local charities across England. In August, the musical group added a comedy troupe, for enhanced entertainment, while performing at the Edfringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland. The event’s organizer exclaimed, “Heidi is a world class singer, a genuine, rare and unique talent. It was a joy to work with her and entirely worth bringing her 5,000 miles to come and sing in our shows.” – Beth O’Brien of Ditto Entertainment

Heidi Burson’s unprecedented vocal range and songwriting talent is reminiscent of Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Adele. Patrons of every age find themselves out of their seats dancing the evening away while enjoying original music written by Heidi seamlessly weaved in with popular cover songs throughout the evening sets. No-Country For New Nashville Preview—Women Who Rock said of Heidi’s debut album, Every Shade of Blue, “The sultry tone that Heidi produces can silence most any room she is performing in.”

Her politically charged single, “Give Your Love Away”, has been played on BBC radio. Hoxton Radio’s, Ladies What Brunch, featured a live performance of her brand new song, “Whenever You’re Around.” She is the winner of the 2015 Eddie’s Attic Open Mic Shootout, putting her up with past winners like John Mayer and Jennifer Nettles. Her music is currently in rotation on Nashville’s online radio station, AcmeRadioLive.

Heidi hopes to continue reaching across the globe to connect people to each other with the love of music.
