HESTON, a full-time musician, composer, songwriter and producer possesses one of those rare, “instant classic” voices laced with confident sensuality, informed by the best side of mellow 70’s soul. Nostalgic, yet very much his own style, HESTON’s music is beautiful, lyrically refreshing, vocally and melodically unique, timeless, rich and soulful. His 2008 independent debut album, Storyteller, was critically acclaimed internationally and possessed an exceptionally well-composed body of original songs written and produced by HESTON. “Creating timeless music has always been my ultimate goal,” says Heston with a poised, yet humble demeanor. “I want to leave the world with music that can be played for a lifetime.”
Born on the Island of Dominica (British West Indies), singer/songwriter HESTON grew up with music all around him. Being surrounded by reggae, pop, classical, soul, R&B, rock music was commonplace. So, it is no surprise that radio, along with a collection of his father’s records, would open the key to his soul and love for all types of music –From Barbara Streisand to Aretha Franklin, The Bee Gees, Marvin Gaye, Elton John, Beres Hammond, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson (to name a few) — as evident in his music.
HESTON recently released his sophomore album, Warm Human, Cold World (World Soul Music/Dome Records) and the album is climbing the charts and receiving international radio promotion. The Atlanta-based artist is unabashedly romantic, allowing listeners to enter his most intimate spaces and thoughts. Here, the shy, singing boy who once fearfully trembled behind his church’s podium is now revealed as a sure-footed, hot-blooded man clear about what he wants and how he plans to get it—be it his internationally respected music career or securing a passionate, solitary love.
His music is accompanied by a full band with foundational rhythms that stem back to his island roots, comprised of percussions, horns, acoustic and electric guitars, leaving audiences mesmerized. He has performed to great delight to audiences of up to 40,000 people at international venues including Apollo Theatre, The Blue Note (NYC), Sambuca’s Jazz Cafe, BAM, Highline Ballroom, Hard Rock Cafe, SOBs, Blues Alley, among others.
