Heather Brave is a singer and songwriter who grew up in New Jersey. At age 2, she became obsessed with The Wizard of Oz, and infatuated with the process of telling stories. She would dress up in the gingham Dorothy dress and belt Somewhere Over the Rainbow in the kitchen daily. Heather began acting in theater, film, and TV in NYC by kindergarten, with credits including “Law & Order: SVU,” and the film adaptation of “Jeremy Fink & The Meaning of Life.”
As she explored diverse roles, she was eager to sculpt her own stories. She discovered artists like Ingrid Michaelson and Vampire Weekend. Her perspective on what music could be completely transformed. She learned guitar on her first purple guitar named Daisy Rock and started writing songs that fused the pop she grew up listening to (mostly Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus) with the depth and wit of singer-songwriters.
Since then, she has been writing music in NY, LA, and Nashville. She has performed at Rockwood Music Hall, The Standard, Hotel Cafe, and The Bitter End. Heather has released several singles including “Like a Wave,” a bright sensuous banger, which debuted at #32 on the Billboard Indicator Chart. Continuing her passion for the intricacies of colorful and hard-hitting lyrics, Heather graduated from Columbia University with a major in English (and she finds a way to bring Virginia Woolf and Renaissance Literature into the pop world). Heather is currently probably on the Upper West Side eating sushi take out, planning her next release which she describes as “straight-forward and satisfying.”
