     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 latest album, Welcome to Blue Town, was selected by LivelyTimes.com among the top favorite Montana-made albums of 2015.  Her third album has a planned release in 2018.

     Heather grew up in a musical family in Texas and has been performing since childhood.  Her step-dad, Floyd Luker, plays bass, and his father, Beutel Luker, is a famed fiddle maker.  Her mom and grandmother, Peggy Luker and Dorothy Rinehart Lester, have sung with Heather throughout her life giving her excellent examples of pitch and rhythm.   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 Bachelor of Arts 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 Master of Arts in Liberal Studies. It was in Santa Fe that Heather felt the strong pull of wild 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 these days.

     Heather is a trained dancer and choreographer, which she utilizes in her music videos.  She is also active in community and children’s theatre in the areas of education, acting, directing, and voice coaching and has earned two theatre awards.  She has also performed national radio jingles and television commercial voiceovers. 

The Band

The Heather Lingle Band is an uncommonly good original Americana band.  They keep the crowd dancing with two-steppers and waltzes from some of Americana's best artists, as well as Heather Lingle's fan-favorites like "Aunt Marty's Cadillac," "Crazy Feeling," "Man of Mine," "Last Call on Love," "Got Me Down," “Whiskey for Breakfast” and "First Snowflake."   The emotion and crystal clear quality of the vocals, the mesmerizing leads and rock solid back line make them a band that you don't want to miss.  Check them out on the road sometime! See the "Calendar" in the navigation menu to see where they're playing next!

Band members:  Michael McDaniel (drums), Kevin McGlynn (bass), Bill Dwyer (lead guitar) and Jim Constantine (Mandolin)
