So you're cruising the internet and read an overview like this, what are you gonna do?
Heather Christian & the Arbornauts is the music-brainchild of Heather Christian, the daughter of a blues musician and a go-go dancer from backwoods Mississippi and 5 of the most virtuosic boy prodigies she could find.
Primarily known for her eccentric voice (“Christian howls like a werewolf with a voice made of molasses” – Variety Magazine), Miss Christian is part blues musician, part pixie, part old lady and pulls from the traditional gospel canon in tandem with circus music, noise rock and good old fashioned feeling good.
Miss Christian and this multi-tasking brood of musical dandies (Sasha Brown, Matt Bogdanow, Chris Giarmo, Josh Myers and Jonathan Anderson) comprises their song set of dream hymns and odes to imaginary landscapes that reside somewhere between a vast theoretical sea and the deep American south.You're gonna investigate right?
Glad I did, check out the amazing vocal talents of Heather Christian.
