Selected by BBC Introducing as one of 25 unsigned UK acts tipped for success back in 2013, Heidi was invited to attend a musician's masterclass at Abbey Road Studios and was met with high praise from BBC Radio 2's Tom Robinson. In 2014 Heidi went on to beat over 9,000 competitors to win Open Mic UK winning an artist development deal. Heidi Browne's first two albums were aired on BBC Radio1, BBC 6Music & Amazing Radio, with 'Lost in Grey' tipped a 'stand-out release' by The Musician Magazine.
Heidi released her highly-acclaimed third album 'White Rabbits' in Spring 2015 and during her European album launch tour encompassing Belgium, Holland, Germany, Denmark and Luxembourg performed live on national German and Luxembourgian radio, partaking in bilingual interviews. Heidi's Summer single 'Colouring Outside The Lines' was chosen as 'song of the month' regionally and has been played nationwide in the UK with Sir Bob Harris declaring 'How good is that!?'.
2016 saw the release of 4th album 'Holiday For Your Heart' with a tour of Australia. Stand out tracks include 'Little Darling' and 'Under The Weather' which received radio play in Italy, Australia and the UK on stations including BBC Radio 2. This year Heidi begins work on her 5th studio album and hatches plans for tours of the US and Japan.
No stranger to performance, Heidi has been gigging since the age of 16. After studying classical violin and flute as a child she soon moved towards popular music and took up guitar and piano, writing songs from an early age. Heidi's father is a professional musician and toured with Kate Bush and Barclay James Harvest.
Heidi Browne's music ranges in genre from rootsy-pop to jazzy-folk, seasoned with reggae influences and a touch of the theatrical. Drawing inspiration from many sources, Heidi's creative flair spans into the visual arts and her illustration skills can be seen in her animated music video 'Paris'. The song was an instant hit on soundcloud, quickly reaching 100,000 plays. Thea Gilmore tweeted that 'Paris' would be the "best £1 you'll ever spend".
