12/10: Hey Heather
Hey Heather is a five-piece rock band from the capital of Finland.
It all started in fall 2008 when long time friends Joni (gtr) and Jontsa (drums) decided to make music with something old, something new, something borrowed and something not blues: swelling pop-melodies combined with punk rocks energetic essence.
They found Joonas (vox) and Väinö (gtr, b.vox) to share their vision and Hey Heather had taken her first breath. After a few line-up changes in bass guitar, they found Pete (bass) to complete their sound. The band had played dozens of venues so far and their live act makes sure that no member of the audience catches a cold.
In 2009, Hey Heather signed a record-deal with Finnish independent label, Scandal Music Company, and their first single – Regrets? – was released on 1.9.2010, and it went straight to number 1 on Finnish radio station YleX’s Himotuimmat (most lusted) -chart.
Hey Heather got voted in Tulevaisuuden tusina 2011 -list as of the twelve most promising new bands in Finland. The list was chosen by Finnish music industry executives including promoters, reporters, agents, A&Rs.
Now Hey Heather is recording its second single which will be released in January and their debut album will be in stores when there’s still snow in Finland.
