Apollo Music Café, January 13, 2012. His voice rises and falls like ocean waves rolling over the white sands of his Dominica homeland. A guitar-welding troubadour whose tenor is as melodious as the island accent of his native tongue, Heston’s music soothes, cajoles, and ultimately envelopes listeners into a sensual atmosphere rich with whispered promises. The Atlanta-based artist is unabashedly romantic. His newest album,
reminds us why we are here—to love.
Dominica born, Philly schooled, and Atlanta refined, Heston is a largely self-taught singer/songwriter/arranger/producer and guitarist with the smooth, singular sound and the bohemian appearance has attracted a devoted following in Atlanta. He has partnered with Grammy winning producer Phil Driver, Khari Simmons (Jiva), and Sam Sims on his album Storyteller. This e album earned Heston nominations for a BET-J Virtual Award for “Best Underground Artist” and two Soul Tracks Readers Choice Awards for “Best R&B/Soul Male Artist” and “Best New Artist of the Year.”
