Groovit Yourself (2009)

"Vampires and Martians and Woobies. Oh, my! If you're looking for a safe, predictable romp through a sleepy field of poppies, turn back now. Heather Haze's latest album, "Groovit Yourself" is a genre-jumping adventure through the imagination. Channeling her musical prowess through a multitude of instruments, Heather weaves raw emotion into a raucous tapestry of tasty hooks and glorious solos, exploring life, death, politics, religion...and yes, even love. Groovit Yourself may not be Kansas. But it's an awful lot of fun."



Heather Haze is best known for her dazzling performances on sax. She's ripped it up with such legends as Little Feat and George Clinton and P-Funk, and scores of quality artists from coast to coast. Fueled by that same passionate energy, Heather's first album, Groovit Yourself, showcases her full spectrum of talents, not only on sax but on guitar, vocals, flute, keys, and whatever else she gets her hands on. Her instrumental skills soar effortlessly over a colorful landscape of well-crafted songs and expert arrangements.

Heather started out playing blues and rock around the Midwest. Her musical talents carried her to Washington D.C., where she gained momentum playing with top local acts, including the well-known Johnny Artis Band. During that time, she was invited to perform at the Apollo Theater in New York City, where she appeared twice. She also took the stage with the Commitments touring band at the Bayou in D.C. Later, she shifted her focus towards the Baltimore music scene, where she was a featured artist at the 1998 Music Monthly All-Star Jam. Capping off the 20th century, Heather was invited to perform with Little Feat at First Night Montgomery, New Year's Eve of 1999.

In late 2001, Heather relocated to Sarasota, Florida to care for her father until he passed away in 2002. She decided to stay in the area, fine-tuning her unique style and stage skills with a multitude of excellent bands and musicians, such as local favorite Funky Octahedra. She made several star appearances in the area, including a memorable performance with the Grandfather of Funk, George Clinton and Parliament/Funkadelic. Heather also appeared in the independent film, "The Most Depressing Man in the World."

With little more than a suitcase and her instruments, Heather eventually moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue bigger opportunities. To survive the transition, she played her sax on Hollywood Boulevard, meeting with surprising success. Her playing captured the attention of producers, filmmakers, and music industry executives. She appeared with Cheech and Chong in a quirky Obama promo, and became a featured musical guest on the "Comedy Slam" tour.

A year of performing and making contacts in L.A. inspired Heather with a new sense of direction. After attending the glitzy Hollywood Music Awards in November of 2008, Heather headed back to Washington D.C. where she set up shop and began recording in earnest. The result: Groovit Yourself, her first major independent release. Before the album even hit the shelves, her off-the-wall rocker, "Buddha Baby" was nominated for the 2009 Hollywood Music in Media Awards.

Heather plans to continue building momentum in all areas of her career; as a soloist, recording artist, writer and composer. Come what may, Heather promises to keep doing what she does best: groovin' it herself.
