She was also shortlisted for Jamie Cullum's Big Audition in 2011 and has released two albums of original songs which have been featured on BBC 6Music, Amazing Radio and a host of regional stations.

Heidi is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist from a musical family. Her dad toured with Kate Bush and is the keyboard player with Barclay James Harvest. Her music ranges in genre from rootsy-pop to jazzy-folk, seasoned with reggae influences and a touch of the theatrical.
