This week Heidi Dewhirst shares her music with FTP.
Influences from the likes of Joni Mitchell, Kate Bush and Tori Amos combine with a true individuality to form the unique vocal style of the newest addition to the Manchester music scene. Bourne of the city’s thriving open mic circuit, Stockport indie-folk singer/songwriter Heidi Dewhirst offers up an eclectic melange of sweetness and melancholy to the parapet.
Having spent a good portion of her formative years traveling, she is a truly free-spirited individual whose bohemian air shines through in her undulating melodies and meaningful writing. With themes centering often on heartache and lost loves, her lyrics are thought provoking yet memorable, and peppered with hints of pop and soul, keeping the listener humming away for days.
