Heather Mae writes music for the light seekers and the good-troublemakers. Delivered via explosive vocals over high energy rhythm-heavy piano, her performances are an empowering, on-fire, musical experience that bursts in the chest of every audience member, moved to their core by her passion and message of self-love and social justice. Her 2016 debut album, I AM ENOUGH, reached #58 on iTunes Pop Album charts without the help of a record label and was an announcement to the world: Mae is the next generation of social justice music. Dubbed “the new queer Adele” by L-Mag, Heather Mae is using her music to shed light on issues not often heard in pop music, such as body positivity, racial justice, and LGBTQ rights.
September 2019 she is adding another title to her resume: mental health advocate. Mae has taken her personal struggle with Bipolar Disorder 2 and Depression and turned it into a record, entitled GLIMMER. With this new record and live show, Mae is a magnetic light force and every audience member is transformed with her anthemic message of hope.
Mae is a 2018 finalist in the Bernard Ebb Songwriter Awards. She was dubbed the winner of the 2017 Songwriter Showcase at the prestigious Rocky Mountain Folks Festival in Lyons, CO and achieved second place in the Songwriter Showcase at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Telluride, CO. She was named the People's Choice Award winner of the Wildflower Festival's Singer-Songwriter Showcase in Richardson, TX, and landed an Official Showcase at the International Folk Alliance Conference in Kansas City in 2017. Mae has opened and shared the stage with Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls), Holly Near, Tom Paxton, Crys Matthews, Tom Goss, Danielle Ate the Sandwich, Rebecca Loebe, and Amy Speace.
She's currently in the studio recording her new album at Sucker Punch Recording Co in Bethesda, MD. She will be on tour June 2019 for the annual LGBTQ Pride Tour (The Singing OUT Tour) w/ Crys Matthews and will be touring this October in support of her Fall 2019 album release.
