The music of L.A. songwriter Cathy Heller embodies much of what might be described as the "Ingrid Michaelson" effect: sincere, sweetly turned out acoustic pop that's lightly glazed with strummed ukuleles, chiming guitars and tightly spun vocal harmonies. Forthcoming five song EP Imagine Nation, due April 20, was produced by Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Cory Brothers) and Heller co-wrote the songs with her "beautiful partner in crime" Kyler England (of The Rescues). At turns heartfelt and sunny, tracks such as the spirited "Breaking Free" and DC pick "Fly Away Home" reveal a special knack for a lovely melody and a bright tone that has made Heller an in-demand, angst-free source of songs for TV's One Tree Hill and Body of Proof and a mainstay at L.A.'s songwriter haven Hotel Cafe.
