Heather Mae was once just a folk songwriter with a ukulele but after recovering from vocal nodules – which left her unable to sing for two years – she is stretching the limits of her music and her voice. Her newest EP, titled “I AM ENOUGH”, is a collection of five anthemic songs that encourage the listener to search for the best version of themselves while also shaking their hips to a new wave of pop – think Tegan & Sara, meets Sara Bareilles, with the vocal tenacity of Etta James. Each song is lyrically anthemic and features Heather Mae's brassy voice a la Etta James. Noted as an “empowering artist” by FLURT Magazine and “charming” by The Washington Post, Heather Mae is using her music to shed light on issues that are close to her heart such as body positivity, mental health, LGBTQ rights, and redefining what it means to be “good enough”.
Mae has performed at many distinguished festivals including Kerrville and Falcon Ridge Folk Festivals, Utah, Atlanta and Capital Pride Fests and Cinema Systers Film Fest. Her song “Stand Up” won Gold in the Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Competition and led her to win the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriting Competition.
