"Fresh On The Net"

Based in Market Drayton, Heidi Emma Peach Browne has been writing and gigging for ten years. Creativity and performance chops are like muscles – the more you use them, the stronger they get. [...] the writing is sharp and direct and the vocal performance is absolutely f*cking immaculate. When most of us get up with a guitar to sing, we tend to concentrate on the playing and throw away the vocal into a nearby microphone almost as an afterthought. Whereas what the audience wants to hear is somebody telling them a story – straight and direct, person to person, heart to heart. Girlfriend is a masterclass in how to do just that – in a radiofriendly 2’39” flat. Will we be including her on the BBC Introducing Mixtape next month? Damn straight. - Tom Robinson

After impressing the judging panel at auditions from against more than 9,000 acts who signed up to Open Mic UK this year across the UK, they went on to perform in the Open Mic UK live showcases, battling through both Regional and Area final heats. - Music News

Heidi attended a musician's masterclass at Abbey Road and was met with high praise from Radio 2's Tom Robinson. In 2014 Heidi went on to beat over 9,000 competitors, to become the national winner of OpenMicUK. Heidi Browne's first two albums were aired on BBC Radio1, BBC 6Music, Amazing Radio, with 'Lost in Grey' tipped a 'stand–out release' by The Musician Magazine. Heidi released her highly acclaimed third album 'White Rabbits' in Spring 2015 and during her European album launch tour encompassing Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark and Luxembourg she played live on national German and Luxembourgian radio and made use of her language skills in bilingual interviews. Heidi's Summer single 'Colouring Outside The Lines' was chosen as 'song of the month' regionally and has been played nation wide in the UK. Following a jam packed British tour, 2016 will see the release of Heidi Browne's 4th album and an Australian tour.

Playing 7 instruments and speaking 3 languages, the Oxford drop out is no stranger to performance and has been touring the UK since the age of 16. After studying classical violin and flute as a child she soon moved towards popular music and took up guitar and piano, writing songs from an early age. Heidi's father is a professional musician and toured with Kate Bush and Barclay James Harvest.
