Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Heather Park's debut album, Dream In Pictures, is an eclectic blend of styles and captivating vocals a la Jill Scott, Alcia Keys and Amel Larrieux. The title track is a modern lullaby about seeing life clearly with a trip hop twinkle while "Understanding" is a quiet seventies-style soul stunner. "The Life" is a mesmerizing statement with bits and pieces of an orchestra popping in and out. "The songs in Dream In Pictures are an honest reflection of my heart and mind" says Park. "It's such indescribable bliss to be able to write and sing music that resonates with your soul. I hope they resonate with your soul too." Park's personal lyrics reflect on her experiences as a Korean-American but really she just wants to find her way as a citizen of life.

About the Artist

Heather Park is not what you expected. She dreams in pictures. She sings with soul. Soul of a woman, eyes of a child, a voice that exudes warmth, and a tone that invokes you to keep listening. Her music has a lyrical intellect, with a soul that’s pure hip-hop. Her velvety voice is laced with a soulful edge, her songs transcend genres and embodies a style all its own. Amidst rich, moving harmonies and vocal arrangements, her songs explore aspects/angles of love and life in a voice of rare sincerity. Her sound is unique, drawing from the eclectic mix of her musical influences. A classically trained pianist, she grew up listening to everything from hip-hop, R&B, folk, pop, and even country music. There is no simple explanation for her soulful singing. "I honestly don't know where it comes from. I wish I had an easy answer. It’s just something that’s always been inside of me. I don't know how to sing any other way." She was introduced into the music scene in 2002, when she made a choice to pursue music over going to graduate school, much to the disapproval of her parents. While working at a deli in New York City, her demo caught the attention of the programming director of New York's Hot 97, and so began her musical career. Through a chance meeting, she met producer and songwriter Steve Francis (Stush Music) and an immediate creative connection was formed. "It was a blessing to find someone who shared my vision and who allowed me the room to grow and find myself as an artist." From their creative union, grew a project that was not unique to any one genre but drew from all of them. "I realized a lot of my discomfort came from trying to fit in to external notions of what I should sound like, how I should sing. Now, I've stopped trying to comply and learned to just be." With the release of her debut album “Dream In Pictures, Heather has established herself within the industry. Her album is an eclectic blend of styles and captivating vocals. She’s been featured in Jade Magazine, Asiance magazine, Asianmusicsource.com, and has performed on Imaginasian TV. “It’s a never-ending lesson, learning to love the skin you’re in. I’m certainly no exception. The songs in ‘Dream in Pictures’ are an honest reflection of my heart and mind. It’s such indescribable bliss to be able to write and sing music that finally resonates with your soul. I hope they resonate with your soul, too.

Format: Audio CD
I was introduced to Heather Park's music in an interesting way - as a 30-something, technology challenged music fan who no longer listens to the radio, it is difficult to hear music by new artists. One day I had my tv tuned to the digital music choice's "Smooth R&B" channel and they played "Dream in Pictures". I thought the singer's voice was beautiful and that the song had a melodic feel that I haven't heard in music in a while. On another day, I was tuned in to this channel again and they played "Leave Me To Dream", also by Heather but this song has a different vibe than the first - it's smokier and talks about a lost love.

I'm happy that I had no preconceived notions about Heather before I bought the disc - had I known that she was Korean before I heard the tracks, I might have been a little hesitant to purchase it (not knowing how she'd sound or what type of music it'd be) BUT having heard her sing first I could tell that she is a talented singer/songwriter who happens to sing r&b music. Her singing is not forced or phony and the reviewer is accurate in putting her in the category of Jill Scott, Amel Larrieux and Alicia Keys.

The production done by Steve Francis is overall terrific! Some songs have a melodic beat due to the use of acoustic guitars. This duo definitely work well together like Brandy/Darkchild, Kelis/Neptunes or Amerie/Rich Harrison. It's great when a producer & singer vibe well enough to create great sounds. Hopefully word of mouth will help propel this album so that people can at least hear a song or two and so that they'll be able to produce a second.

The standout tracks to me are: Dream in Pictures, Your Woman, Didn't I, The Life, Is What It Is, Baby I & Leave Me To Dream.

If you're searching for some new r&b or if you want to call it "neo-soul", go to her website and sample a few tracks - you won't regret it!
