Heather Christie is an American singer/ songwriter, producer, DJ, and dancer. Fanning genres including folk-soul, alt-pop, and tribal house, Christie’s heartfelt songwriting + production stems from true life experience and embodies a message of creative empowerment.
Born and raised in an eclectic family on the Santa Cruz coast of California, music was a central part of Christie’s life. Gifted her first guitar at age 13 and encouraged to pursue musical theatre by her grandparents, Christie got her musical education early. Classical choir, jazz ensemble, Broadway musicals and teen singing competitions were a part of her upbringing. She starred in dozens of children’s Broadway musical productions, and directed High School plays. She travelled to statewide concerts to perform with her classical and jazz choirs. Between her performance studies and her flower-power family life at Grateful Dead shows and music festivals, Christie developed her eclectic niche.
Blooming as a modern dancer during college, traveling to India, and getting certified as a yoga teacher in Costa Rica, adult Christie compiled her music, dance, and performance philosophies together to create her own sound and style.
In 2016 Christie was seen on American Idol's Finale Season as a second-round finalist in Hollywood Week. Her song 'Tincture'; (released by project Feral Fauna) gained viral recognition through Spotify's Discover Weekly Playlist in 2017 and hit millions of streams overall. A collaborator at heart, Christie has co-founded music projects Feral Fauna, Silk Drop, Honeywild, and Sirens of Soul. She tours regionally & nationally with her solo project. She writes, records, and produces out of her home in Topanga Canyon. She lives with her husband Vir and daughter Naya Rose.
Christie is a music mentor and helps uplift women in the industry to be their own producers and CEO's of their independent music businesses. Her coaching business 'Mind Body Music' runs courses and 1:1 programs yearly.
Her new record label 'Möonbabe Records' highlights mama musicians and feminine creatrixes.
