Heather is a Montana-based, Texas-born singer/songwriter whose critically acclaimed debut album, Coyote Beauty, reached #19 on New Music Weekly's National Indie Chart and appeared on Japan's Real Country Top 200 in 2012.
Her second release, Welcome to Blue Town, was selected by LivelyTimes.com among the top favorite Montana-made albums of 2015. Heather's brand new 2018 full-length album, Wild Blue, has something for everyone! <br>Heather grew up in a musical family in Texas and has been performing since childhood. Her step-dad, Floyd Luker, plays bass on Heather's albums, and her mom and meme, Peggy Luker and Dorothy Rinehart Lester, have sung with her throughout her life. They have each co-written songs with her as well. In addition, the three are related to the late Cowboy Slim Rinehart, one of the original “Singing Cowboys” of the 1930s and ‘40s. Heather left Texas right after she completed a B.A. in Religious Studies from St. Edward's University in Austin, TX. She went straight to Yellowstone National Park and worked for the summer as she tried to figure out what she was going to do with her life. She soon decided to go to graduate school at St. John's College in Santa Fe, NM where she earned a M.A. in Liberal Studies. It was in Santa Fe that Heather felt the strong pull of the wilds of Montana. Now, for over 15 years, she happily resides on the Continental Divide in Southwest Montana, over a mile high in the unpredictable Rocky Mountains. Life is pretty grand.
