Heather Gruber has a whimsical style but her debut release “Dance into the Desert” recounts the real experiences of a young musician trying to make it in Hollywood.
The city can chew you up and spit you out, but Heather takes it all in stride, probably because of her gospel music upbringing. You can find the springs in the desert if you look hard enough, the singer-songwriter says.
Heather grew up in the hills of East Tennessee, with her roots deep in mountain folk and southern gospel music. She toured with her grandparents in a southern gospel trio when she was a child.
But she is realistic about her work. She studied Music Business with a concentration in percussion performance at Anderson University in Indiana.
The year after college, she went on a mission trip to India where she realized life on the road trying to make it as a musician in California would be easy in comparison to life on the streets of India.
Her music captures the feelings that are common to many people: Hope for better things, pleasure in simple days and the wonder of what tomorrow may bring.
With an indie-folk singer-songwriter style, Heather’s music is an outstanding collection of heartfelt music. The new album details her evolution from young lady with a dream to working musician and it is a wonderful collection of living lessons for all listeners.
