Thanks for stopping by!
I'm Heather Lingle, an Americana singer/songwriter.
I was born and raised in rural Texas in a very musical family. But, when I finished college in Austin, TX, I decided I was ready to pull up my roots and make my home in the Northern Rockies. I've been a Montana resident now for over a decade. But, I go back Texas at least twice a year to freshen up on my accent and spend time with my grandmother & songwriter, Dorothy Rinehart Lester and my grandfather & fiddle maker, Beutel Luker.
If you're in Montana this summer, come to one of my live shows! They are crowd-pleasing, toe-tapping and showcase compelling vocals and a great band!
The BoZone reviewed one of my shows in February, and here's what they had to say:
"Heather Lingle has a powerful voice, great energy, and is a true performer with passion that can be heard in every lyric she sings." ~Ashley Cosgriff, The BoZone, Arts and Entertainment

I'm going to be in a movie!! An independent film titled, The Tinderbox! I've been cast as myself playing with the band Montana Deluxe in the movie. We'll be in the bar scene performing my song "Man of Mine" when the two lead characters fall in love while dancing! Two of my songs will be on the official soundtrack!!
Here is the movie trailer for The Tinderbox! (We're at :36 for a split second!)
I've recently released "Welcome to Blue Town", my second album! It's a special project for me because I got to write a song with my grandmother, Dorothy Rinehart Lester, for this album - the title track "Blue Town."
I wrote and recorded this project during a very difficult, very painful couple of years. You'll hear my struggle with major depression and anxiety disorders, alcohol abuse, and divorce. These honest, very personal struggles are revealed intimately through the songs.
Regarding production, Mark Iwaniak (producer & lead guitarist), my dad, Floyd Luker, bassist, and I recorded the album at Mark's Red Hill Records studio in Butte, Montana..
"Welcome to Blue Town" has been described as a:
"blue road diner with a down-home menu of songs serving up heart-felt passion, loss and joy all topped with southern-style gravy." -The Montana Standard
