Vocalist Megan Porcaro Herspring has been kindly compared to Susan Tedeschi, Natalie Merchant, and Tracy Chapman. “Her voice is ‘radio ready” says studio owner Tim Hatfield of CTS Brooklyn, who helped the band finish their 2nd record.
“Everlasting” was written and produced by guitarist Tom Nelson, and features 8 original songs, plus a cover of Crowded House’s “Don’t Dream It’s Over.”
The new release also features strong guest performances by violinist Lorenza Ponce (Sheryl Crow, Bon Jovi), keyboardist Rob Arthur (Peter Frampton Band), percussionist Bashiri Johnson (Whitney Houston, Stevie Wonder), and many of the best musicians in Westchester, including Tory Ridder, Bruce Rose, Matt Graff, Greg Schettino, and Rebecca Haviland.
Heathcote Hill has been honing their live act with performances at venues including The Bitter End, Rockwood Music Hall, Bowery Electric, and more. The band’s only scheduled performances this fall are at Garcia’s on Thursday Oct 4, and at The Bitter End on Friday Nov 16.
