≡ Heather Bond is rapidly becoming a Nashville tradition. Although her music is piano–based and she is a singer–songwriter, she’s so much more than just another Tori Amos wanna–be. Bond’s music is magic, soothing to the soul and packed with emotion, and her long–awaited debut CD, So Long delivers everything she promised to her Kickstarter supporters.
≡ Produced, engineered and mixed by Matthew Odmark, and recorded at three of Nashville’s finest — Gray Matters Studio, Sputnik Studio and Starstruck Studio, So Long takes you on a music journey to bliss. Bond wrote all the of songs, provided piano, tambourine, whistling, lead and backing vocals and gathered some of the best musicians in Nashville to bring them to life, including Matt Nelson on cello, guitar and backing vocals, Stephen Mason on bass and backing vocals, Jake Goss on drums, Mike Lehman on cajon and glockenspiel, Avery Bright on violin, blake cooper on tuba and Charlie Lowell on synthesizer. Fellow songwriter Gabe Dixon and Jason Eskridge joined her on backing vocals. Odmark also contributed synthesizer and guitar licks to the project, which was mastered by Roger Seibel. ≡ The album is the result of a very successful Kickstarter campaign, which raised almost $16,000 for Bond to complete the album. Bond announced the success of her campaign in October 2014 and provided the first taste of the forthcoming album with the release of the lyric video for “Secrets” in December. Bond kept her supporters informed throughout the process with a number of “behind the scenes” videos, culminating with the release of the official music video for the title track, “So Long,” which is a masterpiece of cinema and features Bond's haunting voice and lyrics, as well as provides visual images that hit the listener in the heart, making the video totally relatable.
≡ Bond was recently featured as the “Daily Discovery” by American Songwriters Magazine, as well as Inside the Machine and New York Minute Magazine.
≡ Although Bond has been labeled as “piano pop,” her music is so much more, and embraces a multitude of musical styles and genres. With her haunting, sultry and sexy voice, her thought–provoking lyrics and a musical score that is smooth and easy, every song on So Long is like a fine glass of wine, best enjoyed at the end of the day as the sun is sinking below the horizon. Favorite cuts include the title song, “Secrets” and her duet with Gabe Dixon, “Without You.” ≈ http://www.axs.com/
