HEATHER MAE EVENT BIOGRAPHY:
Smooth and smokey, energetic and poppy, classic and subdued - Heather Mae is one of the top chameleon vocalist, songwriters, composers, and performers in the DC area. Whether performing solo or with her band, The Make Believe, Heather Mae has the ability and experience of morphing her performance and sound to be whatever is required for the event - AND SHE LOVES IT!

Trained classically since she was 10, she moved to NYC when she was 18 to train and study Musical Theater at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. Shortly after graduating, Heather Mae found a love for contemporary-pop music and began performing all over the greater NYC area at weddings, corporate functions, and special occasions. She takes pride in calling herself a nationally touring artist, performing her own original music all over the country, but DC will always be her home. Currently you'll find her singing, playing, and performing all over the DMV area, playing anywhere between 30 minute sets to four hour bar/restaurant/winery gigs packed full of the latest and greatest hits of the music business.

And don't be discouraged by the "singer" category - Heather Mae is a multi-instrumentalist in the best way: guitar, ukulele, piano, even a little mandolin! She is always up for a challenge and ready to learn a new song on a moments notice!

Heather Mae takes the greatest pride in making your event exactly what you'd like it to be. Whether a relaxed dinner party, an evening wedding walking down the aisle to "Ave Maria", or a rowdy corporate function with the best of the '90s - Heather Mae has done it all and hopes to do it all again with your special event!



HEATHER MAE ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:
“[Mae's] songs are charming even outside the context of the original [“One Year of Songs”] project, and she captures her prolific streak with a reflective sigh.” - The Washington Post

While most attendees at an industry conference in New York were wistfully sighing over their coffees and gazing at the room's blank white walls, Heather Mae was staring them down with the colors of fierce creativity--and she hasn't stopped.

Hidden beyond the maze of dull chairs and heavy bricks of PowerPoint text was the speaker's pipedream suggestion. While most of the uninspired audience dismissed the idea of writing a song every day for a year, Heather Mae became relentlessly committed to the challenge. Sparking a 365 day journey, she trekked through over 30 states, making footprints of over 7,000 lyrics and 100+ artist collaborations. Her music is supported by an ever-changing cast of complementary musicians known as “The Make Believe,” some of whom she met during this project. Taking step one on October 1, 2010, Heather Mae is reaching another landmark 2 years later, releasing her LP “One Year of Songs.”
The Pop-Folk LP is her first full length project, a follow-up to her debut EP “Gonna Be Alright.” The growth is undeniable, as the album swirls with inspiration from her yearlong project, showcasing 10 songs from her 365-piece collection.

At the heart of each arrangement are stirring ukulele melodies, which are either supplemented by equally as optimistic lyrics or balanced by contemplative ones. Be assured that both sides of this story-telling coin are inspired and cathartic.

Though Heather Mae channels the influence of traditional singer/songwriters like Ingrid Michelson, Anna Nalick, and Nora Jones, she (unsurprisingly) is willing to step out of this comfort zone, layering haunting but comfortable harmonies a la the Fleet Foxes or Barenaked Ladies. Rounded out by strategic guitar turns, her sound emits the same clarity that's reflected in her lyrics.

Heather Mae's music could show up on your local radio station or the next Garden State-esque soundtrack. It's the seasoning of her yearlong commitment that gives birth to this rare flexibility, having opened her musical identity to each experience of the project.
