"Christian howls like a werewolf with a voice made of molasses"
"lemme tell ya, that Heather Christian is something else. And I mean that in a good way. Every once in a while you see someone perform and you're like, "Yep. This one's gonna take off." She's one of them."
"Christian's voice is like a crazed rubber band - its capacity to bend, stretch, and snap is consistently surprising. Her five-piece band is reassuringly confident, performing Christian's strange and special new-music compositions with the stage chops of a seasoned rock band."
Heather Christian is the daughter of a go-go dancer and a blues musician. A disgruntled classical pianist, she and her "orchestra" (an eclectic assortment of multi-hyphenate musicians) turn Christian's dream-like hymns into a chamber punk collection of stories and meditations. She recently debuted her full length music/movement work "North" at LaMama ETC this year to much critical acclaim. "North manages to combine its poetic imagery and associative narrative into a surprisingly moving event. At the center of it all is the angelic Christian, who delivers a mesmerizing performance that is both intimate and powerful" Backstage Magazine.
