El Perseguidor, Club de Jazz en Santiago de Chile

I’ve found what I think may be and remain my favorite little jazz club in Santiago. El Perseguidor is an intimate, softly-lit club in the heart of the Bellavista Barrio in Santiago’s north-central area of Providencia, just a short walk from Pablo Neruda’s famous house in the city called La Chascona....

CD Review by J. Miranda

Under the Apple Heather Marie Philipp Yours is a very eclectic sample. Many styles combine in these haunting tunes, but invariably, they create an inviting canvas for your sensuous vocals. I hear hints of jazzy Cassandra Wilson, feeling-saturated Radiohead, breath-carressing Joss Stone, and delicately-poignant David Sylvian. I would dare classify...

Why I Write, Why I Sing

Why I Write, Why I Sing

I do, from time to time, imagine and sort of formulate the answer to the question: Why do you write music? And tonight, I think it is a simple one to answer. I don’t. Not so simple to elaborate upon, my answer. Really, I don’t. I don’t write music. The music writes me. I don’t...
Rest Continues

Rest Continues

What can I say? I am not gigging right now, but I am swimming in music. Studying more, writing tons, and loving my life in the sweet-n-sour, bitter-n-bold, quiet-n-melodious way that makes me feel like what is happening (or isn’t) is perfect. Whatever is born out into the world from this time, I will be...

Resting

Hi everyone! It’s been a few months since you heard from me here and my, how time flies! I’ve been immersed in creative projects, writing and re-writing, laying low under the winter snow and wind and watching for what’s next.

CD Review by Kelly O’Neil

Heather Marie Philipp Under the Apple (independent) Not only is Heather Marie Philipp a joy to listen to but she surrounds herself with stellar musicians that exponentially add color and depth to this vocalist’s original songs.  With a three-octave range that sounds incredible down low, Philipp could be compared to the breathiness of Norah Jones,...
