"A Warm, jazzy style...her voice is absolutely stunning!"

- The Star Pheonix


Heather Rice is a singer songwriter and actress best known for her unique voice. She has contributed to countless recording projects and has opened for Lee DeWyze, Joan Osborne, Sheryl Crow, and Lady Antebellum.

Her recent original release is a retro inspired music video for her song "Matchbox Home" self shot from the inside of 1974 airstream time capsule. She has redefined standard Jazz rep such as Nina Simone's "Feeling Good" and recently one of Dolly Parton's most hopeful works, "Light of a Clear Blue Morning" which appears on her gospel album entitled Heather Rice. Heather co-wrote "Like Make Believe Without You" from Mark Bryan's (of Hootie and the Blowfish) album "Midlife Priceless" released 2020.

A 2018 modern Jazz collaboration with Guitarist and Composer, Lee Barbour, led her to cover Jeff Buckley's iconic 90's power ballad, "Lover You Should've Come Over" which inspired a short film made in Charleston, SC. Rice worked with cinematographers, Keith Bradshaw (Sufjin Stevens "Carrie and Lowell Live") and Stuart White (Doom Flamingo). She self produced and edited the film whilst co starring with NYC based actor, Ryan Wesley Gilreath (Carol 2019).

Currently Heather Rice is working in her home studio on two albums: 1. a progressive set of pop songs for release in 2020 wrought with vulnerability and humor about the modern woman's life and 2. a baroque pop song cycle describing what it might have felt like to be Leonardo DaVinci. She is available for hire as a songwriter, actor, video producer, remote voice actor, and brand designer.

Heather resides in Charleston, SC with her husband, Shawn (iamshawnrice.com) and their son, Leonardo. Heather believes God speaks to all of us through music with great love. She cherishes the time she spends with her audiences in song.

"Like an exquisite piece of vintage oil painting, there are splashes of folk-country, dashes of New Orleans blues, splurges of New-Age-y jazz, and gallops of old school Gospel. This is one of the most enjoyable and colorful albums in a long while."
-Timothy Yap, Hallels Magazine

"A singer-songwriter known for her unique vocal interpretations of material in the jazz and pop realms."
