Genre: Indie / Pop / Folk
Members: Heidi Gluck
On her debut EP, “The Only Girl in the Room,” she rummages through a collection of battered and beautiful sounds that explore the ideas of family and where home truly is. She also tackles the more contentious issues of how a woman comes into a sense of self and other obstacles that come from the world around her. Her lyrics are occasionally barbed but still manage not to keep you at an arm’s length. She surrounds herself with gossamer guitar lines backed against a folksy rhythmic gait; there are also interludes of juke joint piano and a host of expressive arrangements that give her voice the platform from which to rise, sustain and become a defiant force on behalf of her listeners.
