Heather O’Neill is a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. O’Neill moved frequently in her teens and 20’s. Her introduction to working in a music club was passing out flyers for an English band in Liverpool when she was 16. “I’ve had my share of interesting day jobs. A barista in New York City, an extra in L.A., a record store employee in Chicago. Remember those?” All the while writing and performing dreamy toe tapping music that blends Blues, Folk, Rock, Funk, and Jazz at night. The musical gumbo lays the foundation for intelligent, unorthodox lyrics that are delivered by a crisp and sultry voice.
Heather has been sharing her wry musical musings with audiences across the US and the UK for over ten years. Playing in clubs, cabarets, colleges, coffeehouses, and festivals. Her musical diversity has driven a unique slate of bookings, from folk festivals to seedy bars, to clubs in NYC and Los Angeles including the Rainbow Room, Canters, and The Sidewalk Cafe. Heather has received airplay on international and college radio stations. She has two LPs (Back There, Nine Lives) and one EP (A Feminist Manifesto). She is currently working on a new project Transmute and is releasing new singles monthly. Heather is currently residing in Chicago.
