Heidi Martin

A passionate composer & songstress, Heidi Martin makes each tune her own.

In the words of Vanessa Rubin, “soaring soulful riffs, bending notes, and high notes that are so focused so right, they ring! It’s a wonderful experience for the listener!”

In 2006 Martin was hand-picked to compete in the London International Jazz Vocal Competition (LIJC), where she placed as a top finalist among some 107 competitors from over 25 nations.

A Washington D.C. Native who studied music at the University of the District of Columbia with Professor Calvin Jones and continued at Howard University studying privately with drummer/vocalist Grady Tate (Sarah Vaughn, Quincy Jones). Martin credits both legends with helping her find her “voice” as an artist.

”Martin has a vision-oneness with all-and she promotes it with her lyrics. She cuts to the chase with little converstion, more Hemingway than Faulkener...demanding inventive recording that pays the listener dividends in the thoughtful consideration and insight.” ~All About Jazz
