Heidi is a self-taught musician and vocalist exploring the genre of “New Weird America”. Her creative practice is based on an exploration and intermingling of traditional and non-traditional sound sources.

Repertoire of instruments include piano, clarinet, harmonica, guitar, melodica, synthesizer, theremin, and various sound makers. She contributed many of these sounds as well as songwriting as a former member of the chamber folk trio Cutleri, later in Knife Thrower’s Assistance, an eclectic musical collective based in NYC and continues to collaborate in her band: Heidi and the 9 Feathers. But Heidi’s first “instrument” was her own voice. From a young age she performed lead roles in operettas and musicals, and although stylistically she has moved on to more avant-garde territories, the quality and range of her voice still hinges on her theatrical roots.

Heidi attended the Institute of Audio Research in New York City, focusing on the process of recording and producing, and went on to record several self-released albums in her home studio, Suki Sound. Her work has been reviewed by labels and blogs all over the globe, applauding her as a unique and exceptionally prolific songwriter and recording artist.

“Heidi Harris’ songs are big open spaces, full of possibility. Things happen, a succession of sonic events, and they follow a clear syntactical sequence, making song structures of an entirely recognisable kind, and yet there is always the sense that anything else might happen, at any moment.” ~Oliver Arditi
