New York, NY (PRWEB) January 22, 2014
Globally-esteemed singer/songwriter Heather Fay has released her full-length album Cherish the Broken, a collection of original songs chronicling the artist’s intimate perspectives on the complexity of human emotions and experiences. Each song is driven by well-crafted lyrics and infused with bluegrass, folk and Americana elements accentuated by guitar, mandolin, bass and percussion. Cherish the Broken will be celebrated by an official release event and a Northeast mini-tour, dates TBD.
Cherish the Broken offers up 10 tracks rooted in raw emotion that explore themes of love, loss, hope, endings, transitions and new beginnings. The simple melodies, precise lyrics and delicate layers of instrumental harmonies within each song showcase Fay’s continuing growth as a songwriter and her ability to render emotionally-honest music that resonates universally and pulls at the heart.
Fay invites her growing audience of worldwide listeners into each imaginative, intimate stage of her creative process through energetic live online performances that express her faith in the collaborative nature of music and its power to forge intense bonds and build enduring friendships. As she navigated her childhood and teenage years, Fay’s passion for singing on family vacations and road trips and for crafting the perfect mix tape for loved ones intensified her already innate connection to music. When, at long last, she received a guitar as a Christmas present in college and began to learn chords and harmonies, the stories inside her poured out in her own voice as she chronicled her own milestones, continued her quest to fine-tune her songwriting skills and developed her identity as an artist.
After Fay started a family, the challenge of making music while having two young children at home inspired her to seek alternative avenues for releasing music and delivering live performances. She put out her debut album in 2009 and in 2011 she became one of the first musicians to use the Hangouts On-Air platform on Google+ to build a global audience for her music. She now has more than 800,000 global followers and hosts a series of open-mic hangouts that allow her to collaborate with and provide a platform for a huge network of musicians from around the world. In 2012, Heather was invited to play Google’s CMJ event in honor of her many accomplishments as a songwriter on the Google+ platform. In 2013, she was asked to be a part of the Agit8 Campaign and appear on the Ultimate Protest Song album sponsored by Bono’s ONE.org and Spotify alongside major acts like U2, Bruce Springsteen, Mumford & Sons, Elvis Costello, Muse, Green Day and many others. Heather continues to play frequently at venues in Connecticut and New York City, including Rockwood Music Hall and The Living Room. Heather's brand new album "Cherish The Broken" was funded 100% by her fans through crowdfunding.
