Heather Christine is poised to make her mark on Canada’s music scene. Both soulful and captivating, she has worked professionally for over 15 years as a vocalist, actress, and dancer. Heather dazzles audiences across Canada with her vivacious stage presence, expressive voice and engaging personality.
Heather’s debut release, ‘Love in Colour’, is an eclectic blend of original R&B, Jazz, and Pop music featuring her original compositions. The album showcases some of Ontario’s leading Jazz musicians including Mark Kelso, Collin Barrett, Anthony Panacci, and John Johnson, with a featured performance by singer songwriter Matt Zaddy.
