Heather Coulton is a singer and songwriter hailing from Preston, UK, and now based in Leeds, where she has quietly honed her song writing skills. Growing up, her love and talent for singing was nourished by her mother who taught her from an early age. She won her first singing competition aged 3, wrote her first song aged 7 and started performing her own material from the age of 15. Her songs are intimately personal, drawing inspiration from her own experiences: finding, and then losing happiness; the struggle to reconcile sexuality with a religious upbringing; and reclaiming independence following personal loss.
With a voice that has been compared to Joni Mitchell and Carole King, she is joined by a musical cohort of close friends, who provide the sensitive arrangements for her voice and music. Heather is also an accomplished singing tutor. She runs a great amount of projects in West Yorkshire (see ‘Teaching’ page).
