Howes has performed on a variety of stages throughout the world, including: Lake Superior’s Big Top Chataqua, the clubs and coffeeshops of her hometown Columbus, Ohio, and the streets and pubs of Europe. She has opened for, or performed with, the Blue Canvas Orchestra, The Chequamegon Bay Symphony Orchestra, John Gorka, D.D.

This self-proclaimed “Northwoods girl” brings to the stage a powerful voice, rhythmic strumming, and insightful, resounding lyrics.

With strong melodies and timeless themes, Heidi shares her stories of tribulation and triumph. Heidi’s debut CD, Even Lovers Drown, was released in August 2002 by Freeze Productions, Inc., accompanied by her first book of poetry, The Morning After the Night She Fell Into the Gorge, Savage Press.
