About Heather Rice

Heather Rice is an elegant Jazz artist and Singer Songwriter. Her intimate vocal quality and piano playing have been compared to Norah Jones. Recent releases include Rice's self titled Gospel album and "Fingers" a Jazz fusion compilation with the Franklin Music Group. She has recently opened for Joan Osborn, Lee DeWyze, and Sheryl Crow and is a regular at the esteemed Bosendorfer Lounge.

The variegated styles, Rice's passionate and versatile vocals, and her claim on songs with solid melodic lines all add color and beauty to her music. She has performed at various weddings and Corporate events both in the U.S. and internationally.

A Note from Heather:

Singing for two lovebirds on the happiest day of their lives is nothing short of thrilling! It's an honor to witness from the bandstand. As a veteran performing artist and a newlywed myself, I love everything about wedding entertainment. I aim to give you a tailored and complete musical experience which means staying in close contact with you and your wedding planner in the months leading up to your special day and making sure you love your wedding music. My band is best known for our "vintage" sound, performing current pop songs with Jazz, Motown, and Funk grooves. Also popular is my straight ahead Jazz combo that plays from the American Songbook, covering artists like Frank Sinatra, Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, and Ella Fitzgerald. PS, I also majored in Opera and play classical piano so hopefully we've got you covered!

I welcome your questions and look forward to making music for your long cherished :BEST DAY EVER!

Sincerely,

Heather Rice

    Heather Rice is a treasure! She is extremely talented, versatile and a pleasure to work with. She received so many compliments from the guests at our daughter's wedding. We could not have been more pleased with her and her bands performance. Grab her up for your event as she may soon be on even bigger stages.

    Heather & her band were the PERFECT choice for our wedding. We have eclectic friends and family and she was able to oblige to all of our requests. Her communication was clear and she communicated with us all the way up until the wedding on changes, requests, scheduling, etc. Beautiful voice, groovy sound, and elegant presence. Really classy!

    I was so impressed with Heather! She really goes above and beyond and is so talented. She's a great communicator and very easy to work with. She kept in touch with me long before the wedding going over songs and working on logistics and timelines. One of the most impressive moments was on the wedding day when she sang hava nagila. If you've ever heart this song, it speeds up and gets really fast. Heather learned this song just for the couple and when she sang it, it was perfect. You can tell she is really passionate about her singing. She really takes great care and making the couples day special and helping them choose the perfect songs to match their style. She goes above and beyond by learning new songs when needed. I recommend her 100%, you can't go wrong choosing her!
