     Heather is a Montana-based, Texas-born singer/songwriter whose critically acclaimed debut album, Coyote Beauty, reached #19 on New Music Weekly's National Indie Chart and appeared on Japan's Real Country Top 200 in 2012.  Her latest album, Welcome to Blue Town, was selected by LivelyTimes.com among the top favorite Montana-made albums of 2015.  Her third album has a planned release of late 2017.

     Heather grew up in a musical family in Texas and has been performing since childhood.  Her step-dad, Floyd Luker, plays bass, and his father, Beutel Luker, is a famed fiddle maker.  Her mom and grandmother, Peggy Luker and Dorothy Rinehart Lester, have sung with Heather throughout her life giving her excellent examples of pitch and rhythm.   They have each co-written songs with her as well.   In addition, the three are related to the late  Cowboy Slim Rinehart, one of the original “Singing Cowboys” of the 1930s and ‘40s. 

     However, music has not always been Heather’s focus. After receiving her Bachelor of Arts cum laude in Religious Studies from St.  Edward's University in Austin, TX and her Master of Arts in Liberal Arts from St. John's College in Santa Fe, NM, Heather's goal was to earn a PhD in theology and teach in higher education. After her second failed attempt at admission into a doctoral program, she decided to pursue music as a career.  Five years later, she performs year-round, has recorded three albums, and made national charts. 

     Heather is a trained dancer and choreographer, which she utilizes in her music videos.  She is also active in community and children’s theatre in the areas of education, acting, directing, and voice coaching and has earned two theatre awards.  She has also performed radio jingles and television commercial voiceovers.  Heather has a Bachelor of Arts cum laude in Religious Studies from St. Edward's University in Austin, TX and a Master of Arts from St. John's College in Santa Fe, NM.

The Band

Heather Lingle Band

The Heather Lingle Band is an uncommonly good original Americana band.  They keep the crowd dancing with two-steppers and waltzes from some of Americana's best artists, as well as Heather Lingle fan-favorites like "Man of Mine," "Last Call on Love," "Got Me Down," “Whiskey for Breakfast” and "First Snowflake."   The emotion and crystal clear quality of the vocals, the mesmerizing leads and rock solid back line make them a band that you don't want to miss.  Check them out on the road sometime! See the "Calendar" in the navigation menu to see where they're playing next!

What's New

John Emeigh and I are shooting a new video for "Montana Turns to Snow", which is a new song that I recorded in Nashville in September. 

This will be a release for the holiday season especially for those who grieve for a lost loved one this time of year. 

Look for this new video as well as the accompanying FREE MP3 Download of "Montana Turns to Snow" by Thanksgiving!
