Called a “jazz sensation” by Monday Magazine, Heather Ferguson’s journey to music has been long and winding. The sultry-voiced singer, now based in Victoria, Canada after many years in Toronto, is fast becoming known for her interpretations of the great songs of the 20th century.
Her debut album, Lush Life – to be released in November 2022 – is a showcase for her beautiful phrasing and remarkable gift for storytelling. With the help of many of Vancouver Island’s finest musicians, Ferguson pays homage to some of history’s finest songwriters, interpreting classic songs that still resonate with audiences decades after they hit the charts.
A dynamic and consummate performer with a smouldering sound, Heather Ferguson is a wonderful addition to the vocal jazz scene.
“Heather Ferguson specializes in the type of jazz that made Burt Bacharach a Hall of Famer in the 1960s and ’70s: Lush, expertly performed, and with an engaging setlist. “
Mike Devlin – Victoria Times Colonist
