Heather Powell in: A Haze of Grays and Blue

 

If you enjoy adult contemporary sounds and musical theatre, Heather Powell is a name that you should consider adding to your listening repertoire. Her recent release reminds everyone of her firm roots in a theatrical background at the College of William and Mary. Hailing from New York, Heather’s voice tells stories of a life lived and worldly travel. Her style is reminiscent of Barbara Streisand, Diana Krall and The Carpenters. For that reason I think Heather is best enjoyed live.

 

Her take charge personality, has proven an asset in every endeavor she’s undertaken. Powell spent  seven years in Europe, serving the US Armed Forces. Where most of her service was as a Medical Service Corps Officer, leading soldiers and managing army health clinics. Towards the end of her duty, Powell became the commander and headliner of the Army’s inaugural theatrical company. Now she's taken the leap in her music career again by signing with New York's True Groove Records, with the release of "A Haze of Grays and Blue." The album was produced by Tomás Doncker and James Dellatacoma, with all songs were written by Powell and Doncker.

This multi-faceted singer/songwriter has taken control of both stages and studios, establishing herself as a Renaissance woman capable of writing, acting, and singing her way to center stage. A place she’s felt comfortable, all her life. “I have been performing for as long as I can remember. From angel choir in church at age five, to puppetry at nine, and then community theatre at eleven,” she says. “I feel as though I was born to perform.”She’s also currently writing her first musical, Lipstick and Camouflage. To most, taking on all these projects at the same time might seem a daunting task. For Powell, it’s par of the course. This recent surge in productivity is indicative of her desire to make things happen. Powell continues to remain true to her adventurous spirit. Taking charge of her life on her terms.
