This soul blues singer from Omaha, NE is making her way in the exploding music scene of Kansas City. After touring for the last two years with another KC based band, Heather decided to fall back into her own rhythm to let the light come shining down. Now she’s booking, writing, recording, and promoting with nothing but passion in her soul for doing what she loves.
Heather’s band delivers an authentic, bluesy sound even after only months of playing together. Since forming at the start of 2017, Keith Ladd (guitar), Ryan Matthew (keys), and Cole Dillingham (drums) put the R&B in rhythm and blues along with Heather’s solid bass lines and powerful vocals holding everything together.
“Heather Newman is clearly comfortable as a leader of the band (more like keeper of the band’s happiness.) Coaxing her guys through songs with smiles and attention, she never misses a beat while doing what it takes to make sure the sounds are on track.”
