Heather Bambrick is a JUNO-nominated vocalist who has collaborated with Phil Nimmons, Fred Hirsch, Gene DiNovi, Guido Basso, Lea Delaria, Rob McConnell, Peter Appleyard, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra, and others.
Heather has released three solo recordings, including You’ll Never Know, which was nominated for Vocal Jazz Recording of the Year at the 2017 JUNO Awards and Jazz Recording of the Year at the 2018 East Coast Music Awards. Her new recording is set for release in early 2019. Heather has been a featured guest on numerous projects, and has been awarded Canada’s National Jazz Award for Vocalist of the Year.
Beyond singing, Heather is one of Canada’s top voice actors, voicing characters for commercial campaigns and several animated series including Emmy-nominated Wild Kratts, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, and Justin Time. She is also an award-winning broadcaster on JAZZ.FM91 (Canada’s only all-Jazz radio station), and a highly regarded adjudicator and clinician, working at schools and festivals across Canada.
Heather’s live performances have been described as “what happens when Ella Fitzgerald meets Carol Burnett at a Newfoundland Kitchen Party!” As a born-and-raised Newfoundlander, Heather uses her East-Coast charm to welcome the audience in to a true “show”.
Heather is a musician’s singer, operating at the top of her craft. She brings together top-notch musicians (internationally considered to be some of the best in their field), wide-ranging repertoire (including everything from jazz standards and impressive original compositions, to reimagined pop tunes and Newfoundland folk songs), interesting and unique arrangements, and outstanding stage presence and humour to create a show that is entertainment at its finest!
As Heather, herself, puts it: “People often feel a need to ‘connect’: to music, to stories, to artist, and to each other. I like to make that connection through music, stories, laughter, and true entertainment. As an artist, I feel it’s my duty ensure audiences are entertained and engaged through and through. There are a lot of people who crave that feeling of getting lost in a show – and I want to give it to them.”
