BEATLES MAGAZINE: Heidi, you began very young in the music…which was the opinion of your parents about you pursuing a musical career?
My mother also wanted me to pursue art as I love to draw ,so I took Graphic design for a year ,but it didn’t give me the same thrill ,so I switched my subject to Music Theory, but only for a year as I moved back to England. The rest, as they say…is history.
HJH: Both my parents of course, Janis Joplin,Aretha Franklin , Michael Jackson,and creedance clearwater… there are too many to mention.
HJH: It was a lot of fun , I remember being on planes, tour buses, living like a gipsy and loving it. Being back stage was fun, I remember seeing Wings performing from the side of the stage and I was dancing along . The whole atmosphere was magical!
HJH: Yes very much, My daughter Jaylie who’s 12 loves to sing and act, she is a natural.Jesse my son is equally as talented and has such a sweet voice.
It was a great experience to be on such a lovely record with such talented musicians.
HJH: Not with my band Earthprayer , but Gonzalo and I do a covers duo ocassionally and I sang “Mull of Kintyre” for the first time recently ,it went down a storm.. so watch this space.
HJH: Yes this year will see the proper birth of Earthprayer , we’ve recently signed with manager Geoff Eaton in the states with his company Respectable Artists, we will be releasing our EP through Respectable, distributed by Universal/Interscope… and touring parts of Europe.
BM: Thank you very much Heidi, is a honour talk with you, thank you.
HJH: I´m really grateful to be asked by you to be interview for Beatles Magazine, it´s one of the best Online Magazines out there and very well respect!.
