Heidi Smith is a classically trained vocalist with a deep love for jazz, blues and soul.
In her youth, Heidi found a passion for the stage while singing with classical vocal ensemble, Candesca, and performing in musical theatre productions. These were wonderful opportunities for her to learn technique and theory, develop her Mezzo-Soprano voice, and become comfortable onstage.
Though she loved the experience of performing with other singers, Heidi had long been waiting to step out as a solo performer and return to her first love, jazz. When attending university in Vancouver, Heidi began performing regularly with student musicians at UBC Jazz Cafe Club shows. The magic of singing with a live band after years of singing along to recordings renewed Heidi's passion for singing. Upon returning to Kelowna, Heidi has been studying recordings of the greats and developing her vocal style, and she is now bringing her music out into the world!
