"Humility, maturity... these are not qualities normally attributed to 22-year-old singer/songwriters of Heather Evans' caliber. These attributes are accurate though.
One doesn't spend much time with Evans before they are struck by her immense faith. Her music doesn't shy from life's issues, however. Her lyrics are full of searching and yearning." Quoted by www.Palestra.net
New Record- For My Generation- Coming Soon!
Finding the perfect gift for your daughter's 15th birthday can be a stress-inducing experience for some, but for Scott Waugh the decision was a no-brainer. He bought studio time for his musically inclined daughter, Heather, so that he could listen to her songs in the car. Ten years and three albums later the adage father knows best has never seemed more appropriate
The result of Heather's inaugural studio sessions was an independent EP release called Impatient Heart. Two songs from the album were licensed by MTV's Laguna Beach, and before long Heather's dad wasn't the only one listening to her music in the car.
Since then, Heather Evans has performed throughout the Mid-west, appeared alongside national artists like Jennifer Knapp, and written more than 150 songs. In 2008, she released her first full- length album, For My Generation.
To commemorate the release of her newest record, an eight-song EP produced by Rick May called "Out of the Woods", Evans will be performing at Woodlands Tavern on Oct. 6, with special guests, Columbus 200 finalists, Mike Wojniak and the Castros.
"I'm really proud of this album," said Evans. "I think Out of the Woods is a great collection of songs and I'm excited for people to hear it."
Throughout her career Evans has also been an advocate for social justice. She's performed countless benefit shows and has worked hard to bring awareness to human trafficking, an issue that affects as many as 300,000 women and children in the U.S. each year.
"A lot of the themes from Out of the Woods are about this issue," Evans said, "and about giving a voice to the women and children who aren't able to speak for themselves."

Evans released an album called "Impatient Heart" while still a high school kid named Heather Waugh. Since then, she's entered young adulthood and gotten married. Evans has released music here and there over the past couple of years and continues to piece together a new full-length as time allows called For My Generation.
When Evans plays live, more often than not, she's raising money for others. We've kidded her that it's ok to make a bit of money for herself. She's not against the idea, but then there's always someone who needs her help. That's just Heather." Quoted by www.Palestra.net
