Acoustic singer/songwriter Heather Bleu created the concept for her band junction hill around the soul connections she made along the way with several talented artists that allowed her to share her joy of acoustic performance. Songwriter Mitchell Taylor of the band Bucket, recently compared Heather’s writing style to that of  Harvard Professor, poet, writer and musician, Mebane Robinson from NYC, referring to her as a “girl Mebane.” junction hill is an original  mix of folk, country, jazz, Caribbean, alternative Indie pop with a splash of Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash. Heather’s voice sounds like a meshing of Stevie Nicks, Joni Mitchell & Janis Joplin – her inspirations include Brandi Carlile, Dolly Parton and Alison Krauss.
Involved with the arts since a child, Bleu began ballet instruction at the age of four and danced professionally in the Tidewater Ballet. She attended The School of the Arts in Richmond and studied dance at VCU. It was there that she learned guitar and began writing and performing. She was asked to sing lead female vocals for The Yard Onions, a popular alternative band led by Dave Jenson. She has also been a member of  The Stones of Jordan and has collaborated with artists such as Zack Artist and has sung with talented local artists, including Janet Martin, The Houston Scott Band, Doc Grin and most recently Jackson Ward. Heather Bleu is currently recording junction hill’s first album Soul Connections at Sound of Music Studio and continues to perform and provide vocals and percussion for the rockabilly and country cow punk band, Cha Cha’s Cadillac.

    Can’t wait to hear your new songs, and the sound with your new band members! From what I have heard from your album demo, this show is not one to be missed.
