"Heather McCready makes music to calm the chaotic soul. The Arlington,Texas based folk singer-songwriter zeroes in on lovely melodies, thoughtful lyrics and the comfort of uncluttered instrumentation. She’s recorded five albums including last year’s Bluebirdy, a sweet paean to warm and whimsical classic songs. On "Bluebirdy", McCready works with respected Dallas record producer and multi-instrumentalist Milo Deering. Deering has been a constant in McCready’s recording career." (Mario Tarradell, Music Critic/Dallas Morning News).
There are few who can lay claim to being well versed in such a range of instruments as the pedal steel guitar, fiddle, dobro, mandolin and guitar Milo Deering is one of those few. Milo began playing when he was eight years old. His parents, both self taught musicians, gave him lessons on piano, ukulele and harmonica. He played guitar in various local bands throughout his junior and high school years. Following graduation he began a study of classical guitar under Robert Guthrie at Southern Methodist University. Milo taught privately for fifteen years while learning to also play pedal steel guitar, fiddle and mandolin.
Together, Heather and Milo and produced five CD's, and have just released a beautiful new love song, "Love Takes Time", about the meaning of true love which debuted on live television last month on Fox 4 "Good Day Dallas". Heather's songs have been played on the BBC in the UK and her CD's have been chosen as "Critic Pick's" on CDBaby.com.
