De Midsummer

Born in the San Francisco Bay Area, Heather Alexander was raised with the customs of the Isles firmly bred into her by her mother and grandmother, both natives of Britain. Her father, a full-blooded Missourian and a prominent jazz vocalist/guitarist of the forties began Heather’ formal education at the age of six when he started teaching her music. By age nine, she was teaching herself to play the violin. She later began composing songs on guitar, and honed her skills with several years of private study in music, voice and drama. Heather has performed in a broad spectrum of contexts from opera to country music.

In 1985, she found her niche in Celtic music by playing fiddle for the Irish and Scottish dancers at California’ largest Renaissance Pleasure Faire. Since that time, her original music has been heavily influenced by the traditions of her roots. In the late 80’, Heather began to experiment with blending her original compositions, electric instruments and traditional Celtic music, which led to the formation of Phoenyx, her first Celtic Fusion band. Together, they performed original and traditional music with a solid rock and roll sound, eventually producing one album, Keepers of the Flame, which was released on Heather’ own label, Sea Fire Productions, Inc., early in 1990. Both the album and the band achieved a high degree of local popularity, and fame. In 1991, when Phoenyx disbanded, Heather returned to her acoustic roots and embarked on a solo career.
