I have been a fan of Ruth Barnes' show 'The Other Woman' for a couple of years now. She hosts the only UK radio show which plays 100% female-written new music and offers a platform to boundary-pushing artists who might otherwise struggle to get airtime. I've discovered many new acts through her show and have found it's very existence a reassurance that there are people in the media flying the flag for independent female artists.
This November I was lucky enough to have been invited down to the London studio to do a session for 'The Other Woman' on DAB station Amazing Radio. I played three tracks and had a lively interview. It seems that Ruth has been a fan of mine for a while too, so we really hit it off!
Ruth said on her show: 'Heidi has the kind of pop sensibility that would make grown ad men weep, big things await!' — Let's just hope she's right!
I hope to be back soon. This woman really is my hero.
