“Led by Burson’s commanding and soulful voice – one with a range that rivals Jill Scott and Adele…The sound is massive; a rich musicality practically oozes off the record.” -Kevin Carr, Behind the Set List
“The deep and somewhat sultry tone that she produces will surely silence most any room that she is performing in.” – No Country for Nashville Magazine
“Last year in May Heidi Burson gave a solo performance at Café Paradiso…absolutely jaw dropping! She surely did silence the room, (as the above quote says), with her amazing voice and performance. This time she returns with her full band. This is definitely one not to miss!” – Steve Giacomini, Café Paradiso
Heidi Burson’s story as an artist is one of shared human experience. Very early on, she felt the poignancy of the music of singers such as Etta James and Aretha Franklin. She was struck by the power and intensity with which they expressed the longing, which we all share, for love and acceptance. These influences, coupled with her own life experiences and a generous dusting of wry humor, have helped to forge a voice and style that is uniquely fascinating. When Heidi sings, people listen. They do so because her delivery is captivating. They do so because she speaks to their own inner feelings. Heidi is a soul singer.
To date, Heidi is an award winning artist and songwriter and has released 2 self-produced full length albums, Every Shade of Blue in 2012 and a brand new record, The Story in 2017. Her music is spinning on AcmeRadioLive and Lightning 100 in Nashville and her single, “Give Your Love Away” has been played on BBC Radio. She has toured across the US, UK and Europe including a feature at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland to which she’ll be returning in 2018 with her own solo show “Soul On Fire.” Her touring has seen her perform in various festivals, concert series and notable venues such as the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, the 100 Club in London, BB King’s and Ruine Senftenburg Castle in Austria.
The Heidi Burson Band will perform at Café Paradiso on Friday, May 10th at 8PM. Tickets are $12 in advance (cafeparadiso.net or at Paradiso), $15 at the show. Check her out at: https://heidiburson.com/videos
