Heather Houston

Heather Houston is a natural born singer, songwriter, performer, conductor, teacher, healer, and group facilitator.

As a singer, songwriter we have most recently had the pleasure of experiencing Heather's soulful voice with her a cappella quartet SIRENZ and her trio Dis Moi. Long before the inception of this trio, Heather refined her ear with numerous small a cappella ensembles, some of them being Sound Advice, a 6-voice jazz ensemble; Madrigaia, a 5-voice early music ensemble of Italian Madrigals, French Chansons, and English Motets; Nectar, a 6-voice ensemble of Balkan vocal music. Vocal harmony has always enlivened Heather's spirit. She sang in harmony with her mother from the time she was 4 years old, and since then has sought out every opportunity she could to blend her voice with others.

As a soloist, Heather has sung lead vocals for Latin bands Soulita and Havana Jazz. For five years she sang jazz professionally with the Steve Abrams trio, and has played numerous lead roles in musical productions. In College she studied Classical Vocal Performance, Social Work, and Spanish, receiving her B.A. Degree from Pacific University in 1997.
