Heather Roush and The HeartStrings
Heather grew up listening to a variety of music and has been singing ever since she was little. She started out at church, and then sang in choirs at school and performed in shows. She went to Oak Hills High School and was in every musical, part of all the choirs there, and performed in talent shows with bands. She personally had some influences from her grandmother, whose favorite was Patsy Cline and Hank Williams. Her other grandma would help her put on little shows when she was a kid. She grew up listening to Garth Brooks, Faith Hill, LeAnn Rimes, and Shania Twain. After high school, she continued her musical theatre education at Northern Kentucky University, and performed at local community theaters as well. She graduated with a BFA in Musical Theatre and a minor in radio/television in 2010 and started working at a country music radio station (B105). There her love for country music grew even more, and she went to talent agency with a small demo CD. She was introduced to a manager who liked her sound and from there they put together a local band to play. Heather went down to Nashville to start the recording process and picking out songs, and recorded her first album "Sides of Me". This album is a variety of songs that show different sides of who Heather is, and what she loves about country music. From there, she had her first local concert to benefit cancer research with some other local country bands: the Danny Frazier Band, and the Dallas Moore Band. It was a great night, and for Heather it felt good being able to sing country music for her friends and family, and for a cause that is important to her since she lost her grandma to cancer. After that, Heather joined a local country band, The Cason Coburn Band, and started singing with them around town. They changed some things around so the band would haver her name on it; The Heather Roush Band. They played the tri-state area until 2022 when Heather wanted to get back to the acoustic music roots. So she decided to create Heather Roush and The HeartStrings! They do country with some bluegrass influence and focus on the music. Come on out to a show and enjoy the tunes!
