Thought I would share this with you again in case you missed it. If you are interested in beautiful new music and the subject of bipolar disorder and stigmas then this is the article for you. Also, here is my performance for the music critic of the Dallas Morning News, Mario Tarradell. It has been called "mesmerizing" :) I hope you agree! http://landing.newsinc.com/shared/video.html?freewheel=69016&sitesection=dallasnews&VID=24346595

The good news is that its already a given that I have my ups and downs! Ha. The main pressure on me if I am ever "a new face of mental health" is just to never give up!

Introduction
Bio

“It is my hope to write peaceful music that inspires hearts and engages imaginations. I want to sing sweet songs, both happy and sad, with enduring melodies and a gentle voice. I love to use celtic sounds with tin whistles and the fiddle paired with other stringed instruments like my favorite, the cello! I need to breath a positive breath of fresh air into the world before I leave it one day. Whether it is with my music, my love of nature, photography, or through my honesty coping with both physical and spiritual trials- I hope that I will make you feel better somehow through these things. This is me and I welcome you to look inside”. - Heather McCready

Bio

With beautifully blended touches of bluegrass, Celtic, classical, and folk, Heather McCready has an original and remarkable sound that is all her own. She is a uniquely gifted and prolific singer-songwriter from Fort Worth, Texas whose music will reach deep inside of you and touch your spirit. Described as “evocative”,  “refreshing”- even “mesmerizing” - her music is imaginative, whimsical and spirited.  Heather and her band use a blend of acoustic guitars, fiddles, mandolin, piano, cello, tin whistle, and upright bass, as well as Heather’s own angelic and distinctly pure voice. In doing so, they create music that will take you to a place that you will never want to leave. Heather thrives on individuality and bursts with creative expression resulting in profound tracks that will move her listeners. Heather currently has airplay all over the world including in the Netherlands, Germany,  Australia, France and England.

 

Since 2009, Heather has released four  full-length albums, Finally Free, Neverland and Give It A Day and Christmas,The Way I Hear It. Throughout each album Heather continues to grow and evolve. However, central to all of her productions is her belief that the art of making good music includes focusing keenly on detail, balancing simplicity with intricacy, and ensuring the clearest purity of sound. Heather has worked with producer and true virtuoso musician, Milo Deering, of Dallas, Texas on all of her CD's. However her first two were also produced with Texas producer and engineer, Patrick McGuire.

 

In 2010, Heather garnered attention for her October release of Give It A Day from Buddy Magazine, “The Original Texas Music Magazine,” who placed her on the cover and ran a story about her and her rare feat of releasing two full-length, original albums in one year. Also in 2010, Heather was featured twice on KDFW Fox 4’s “Good Day Dallas.”  And in 2011, Heather was received two full cover feature stories in the “Metro” and “Arts and Life” sections of the Dallas Morning News. Also in 2011, Heather’s CD received the honor of being included in the editor’s and critic’s choice for best holiday music in The Dallas Morning News and CD Baby. Heather was featured twice again in 2011 on KDFW Fox 4’s Good Day Dallas” singing music from  Christmas, The Way I Hear It ,  her best selling CD to date.

 

In addition to all of this, Heather McCready is a suicide prevention advocate and on the board of the Mental Health Association of Tarrant County. After losing two of her closest family members to suicide and being a treated, functioning, productive bipolar survivor herself, she is passionate about using her music as a platform to speak on the subject of mental health and eradicating the stigmas that prevent it.

 

Currently, Heather is in the planning stage of working on her fifth CD and looking forward to performing throughout 2012.
