"Don't Miss This!"

Don't Miss the latest performance by Heather Greene, who could be the next Jazz-inflected downtown singer-songwriter to break through. She's already gotten the attention of musicians such as guitarist Bill Frisell, who guests on her CD "Five Dollar Dress." - New York Post


"Recommended!"

A recent CD from singer/songwriter Heather Greene displays a velvety voice and no small understanding of melody. Her CD, spare and pretty, features a smattering of high-wattage players such as Bill Frisell and rogue violist Eyvand King. Her cover of "Just What I Needed" is somehow a mash up of Norah Jones and the Cars. Nice. - Time Out New York


"Have You Heard Of Heather?"

Have you heard of Heather Greene? Well, you will. Heather is a downtown songwriter/singer who has been rocking all the cool venues like Tonic, Southpaw, and Joe's Pub. On Thursday, May 12th, I went to see Heather at Joe's Pub (the show was sold out). Heather has a sweet throaty voice and total command of the keyboard. And she expertly sang her own songs and covered "Just What I Needed." Her song delivery has a haunting quality -- speaking of memories both wonderful and sad. Her lyrics can also be saucy and contemporary, i.e. thanking her one-night stand for leaving right on time. (full text on website). - New York Cool


"Five Dollar Dress CD Release"

Heather Greene, who has been quietly taking downtown New York by storm over the past five months, is celebrating the release of her CD, "Five Dollar Dress" on Thursday, May 12 at 7pm at Joe's Pub. The title of the song and CD was inspired by the dress she wore when she wrote the title song. She'll be joined by Tosca String Quartet leader, Leigh Mahoney, who has just returned from her world tour with David Byrne.

Heather's bold lyrics, such as one of her songs titled, "Hold Me Down", combines with a sweet voice and excellent songwriting skills that has captured the interest of some very big names in teh music industry to appear on her CD. She invites you to wear your favorite $5 dress, and feel like a million bucks. The most fab dress will win a copy of Heather's CD and a photo op!
"I'm wearing my dress," says Greene, who is celebrating her Do-It-Yourself-Attitude. "And the bigger and better these shows get, the closer I am to taking it off in exchange for the haute couture!"

Heather Greene's last two jam-packed shows at Joe's Pub in New York City have quickly put her at the top of the list of artists to watch for in the next year. The New York Post wrote, "Don't miss the latest performance...she could be the next Jazz-inflected downtown songwriter to break through." In Time Out New York, Heather has been on the critic's picks of artists to see, and was written up as a singer with a "velvety voice and no small understanding of melody." WNYC recently marveled at Heather's ability to garner some of the biggest names in the music industry on her CD, calling her 'New York's Best Kept Secret."

Her CD, "Five Dollar Dress", helmed by acclaimed West Coast Producer, Tucker Martine, features guitar by Bill Frisell, string arrangements by Steve Barber and the lush sounds of the Tosca String Quartet. The spacious and sultry sounds of her recording will either leave you feeling that you've just driven along the most abandoned road on the West Coast or reminiscing about the time you thanked your Sunday Morning one-night stand for leaving right on time.

Bio

On September 6, 2005 Heather Greene packed up her 60 pound Vintage Wurlitzer onto a windowless cabin on a ship to set sail from 42nd street to England. "I play the best clubs in New York City, have a CD recording I am proud of, and now it is time to expand my audience." Anyone who has seen Heather play live would not be surprized at this adventure. With a charisma and charm that continually brings in large audiences, Heather is constantly trying new songs, instrumentations, and environments that push her limits. "Why not? I recorded my CD in Seattle after traveling with my keyboards in the backseat of a run-down car, sent the files to Austin for the string arrangements, and now it is getting released in Paris. I guess the world is getting small."
Heather's drive and risk-adverse attitude towards life quickly put her on a list of artists to watch for in New York City. Why? simply put, she's good. Really good. Like musicians from an earlier era, Heather puts on a tight and professional show interspersed with charismatic stage banter and hummable songs. This mesmorizing stage persona and a loyal solid backing band has helped her grow a fan base of busy New Yorkers looking to be sent into a bittersweet trance as she weaves in and out of jazz, pop, and a unique poetic style that combines sweet sarcasm with a touch of sexiness. Her inability to sit still for very long and extensive travels is just the fodder needed for creating a soundscape that makes one feel like they are driving along a lonely road.
In early 2006, Heather is releasing her debut CD in Paris and will focus on using the same tried-and-true techniques that made her a success in New York to reach audiences in Europe. "I moved around alot in my youth, continued to do so later, and am still doing it now. As long as it feeds the music, reaches a new audiences and expands my career, that's alright by me."
Look out for Heather in her Five Dollar Dress all over the place, including boats, trains, city subways, and airplaines.
