Biography

Connecticut Singer/Songwriter Heather Fay dabbles in the Alt. Country, Singer/Songwriter genre and adds in a twist of Bluegrass. Her songs pour directly from her heart and she writes of experiences and emotions to which we all can relate. Heather's sophomore album, “Cherish The Broken”, fits like a favorite worn in sweater - it's a cozy, warm and groovy collection of songs about heartbreak and hope, sung by a smooth, golden-honey voiced gal. "Cherish The Broken" was funded 100% by Heather's successful crowdfunding campaign!

Heather has recently gained recognition for being one of the first musicians to utilize the Hangouts On-Air platform on Google+ to build a global audience for her music. In addition to performing hangout concerts for her 1 MILLION followers, Heather hosts a series of open-mic hangouts, which enable her to build an ever-growing network of musicians from around the world. Heather often plays shows in CT and NYC, most recently at Rockwood Music Hall and the Living Room.

Recently, Heather was asked by Bono’s ONE.org to join major acts like U2, Bruce Springsteen, Mumford & Sons, Elvis Costello, Muse, Green Day and many more to take part in their Agit8 Campaign and to appear alongside these acts on the release of the “Ultimate Protest Song” Album sponsored by One.org and Spotify. Most recently Heather was named Country Music Chat’s “One To Watch” Artist.

Heather is currently working on plans to tour in support of her new album.

Heather Fay turns in an incredibly nuanced and artful performance with Cherish The Broken. With simple adornment and an utter lack of calculation, Fay’s songwriting and earthy voice carry the day. Fay uses modern technology to continue to create music and delivery live performances while keeping family as the center of her life. It’s a laudable approach. It’s also easy to see how Fay could be a huge star one day. Fay is one of the leaders of the new model for delivering music to the masses. She’s successful because she’s real, honest, true and talented. Cherish The Broken is brilliant.

Even in the snow, you can see that Fay is all heart! She performed at the first New York City HIRL (hangout in real life) and just released her crowdfunded new album, "Cherish the Broken." She's a Thriller!

“A breath of fresh air” is the best way to describe this week’s #OneToWatch artist Heather Fay.
