Heather Stuart - Nowhere You Need To Be
Info: Heather Stuart is an Irish singer-songwriter based in Dublin. Her music is comprised of a mixture of folk, country/alternative styles, with an emphasis placed on self-encompassing, bare and sometimes, brutally honest approach to storytelling. Her major influences include Patsy Cline, Alison Krauss and Daughter. Heather has played in many of Dublin's most esteemed venues including Whelans Main Stage and The Button Factory and has just released her debut single yesterday.
Heather Stuart's debut single, 'Nowhere You Need To Be', is an interesting mix of contemporary country and alternative folk pop. Opening with an echoed electric guitar progression, Stuart's polished vocals enter the fray on the ballad, you are immediately struck by the sharp power of her voice. Staying true to her influences, the heartfelt tale is accompanied by gentle acoustic picking and banjo arrangements. Uniquely Stuart also manages to push our minds back to classic country folk from the 60's, not so much in sound as in delivery. As an opening salvo, 'Nowhere You Need To Be' shows great potential for exploration of a sound which is currently quite standalone in the Irish music scene.
