"Canadian singer-songwriter Heather Hill - Beautiful, moving & powerful "
- Life with More Cowbell
"Heather Hill is not only an incredibly talented musician, who weaves beautiful stories into music, she is an inspiration to her fellow artists. You can feel the power of her love in each and every song”. ~ Indie Lipstik Review"
- Lizzie Violet, Indie Lipstik Review
"Comparisons of Heather Hill to the singer-songwriter Tori Amos are inevitable. The piano-driven and rock-backed compositions are similar, but the content is less obtuse and dark than Amos’s style. Many of the songs are written to be inspiring power ballads or lighthearted major key tunes."
- Noah Siegel, New Canadian Music
"Her album Leuty Station has a lot to do with the day-to-day life of women as well as the struggles that women are liable to face throughout a lifetime. Her songs are truthful and it seems as if she has personal knowledge of what she is talking about; she has a way of coming across as very intuitive."

“Heather Hill’s Leuty Station is a remarkable and beautiful sounding disc. With strong vocals, imaginative words, music with hooks, expansive arrangements, and sometimes epic production, she presents an interesting strong female image lyrically.”
- Blair Packham, CFRB "In the Studio"
“Heather's debut album "Listen" was an act of bravery as Heather was pregnant with her first child and first album. Her love of poetry and the piano combined in musical stories that will never be forgotten for those in my 3rd floor walk-up in Manhattan's west side."
- Ann Ruckert, Record Producer, 13 Stories, NYC
Heather Hill is published singer-songwriter living in Blue Mountains, Ontario, Canada. She writes heart-opening stories, sings with passion, and plays haunting piano melodies. Her songs come from her soul’s longing to sing her truth and bring love and peace to the world.
She recorded her first album “Listen” in New York with Steve Addabbo, Shelter Island Sound (2004), her second album “Leuty Station” in Toronto with Orville Heyn (2012), and has recorded several solo and cowritten singles since then.
She loves to cowrite songs with diverse artists. To name a few, Heather has co-written with Chris Antonik, a Juno-nominated Blues artist, Henry Lees an award winning songwriter, Jess Speziale a Canadian rock powerhouse, Matt Gerber a quirky, heartwarming solo artist, and Kat Leonard a comedian and entertainer.
One of Heather's favourite performances was playing to a packed house at the Drake in Toronto with her incredible band: Paul DeLong (drums), Russ Boswell (bass), Eddie Paton (guitar), Dave Restivo (piano) and the O'Pears (vocal backup). Micah Barnes opened the evening with his incredible showmanship.
One of her most memorable shows was playing with Greig Nori and Bill Priddle (formerly Treble Charger) at Lop Lops in Sault Saint Marie. She also has shared the stage with so many amazingly talented artists on some great stages including the Makor Room and The Cutting Room (NYC).
She has acquired songwriting and performance skills from Mannes College (NY), West Coast Songwriters, Songstudio, Humber College, and personal music/vocal coaching with Orville Heyn in Toronto and Ann Ruckert in NYC.
Heather has a Factor-funded video, “Stupid Happy”, and has put out a set of acoustic songs called “Liquid Love”. She is continuously releasing new material, so stay tuned!
Heather has a classical piano performance degree from the Royal Conservatory of Toronto (U of T) (ARCT) and a Master of Arts (English) degree from U of Waterloo. She has an MBA from Schulich School of Business.
She has led the Toronto Songwriting Guild for the past decade – a group of 10-15 professional songwriters who are working on their song craft and sharing their talents. She is a member of One Fire Movement - a grassroots group of artists spreading peace through their art and activism.
Heather has appeared on TV and radio across North America during her album tours: she has appeared on CFRB, CBC Radio1, Rogers Daytime Toronto and several college radio stations across Canada and the US.
Heather has held a few publishing agreements in the US and Canada. She got her first cut on a song placed in an off-Broadway show in NYC "Songs of a Century". She received the award for "the best rock song" from Songstudio - The League of Rock award. :)
Heather loves every genre of music and lives to jam in her living room with whoever has a song, poem word or inspiration.
