Two Time 2018 Blues Blast Music Award Winner and 2019 Blues Music Award Nominee
Blues Insight - Peggy Blair
"With Keith Ladd on guitar, classically trained Ryan Matthew on keys and Cole Dillingham on drums, Newman is clearly comfortable as a leader of the band (more like keeper of the band’s happiness.) Coaxing her guys through songs with smiles and attention, she never misses a beat while doing what it takes to make sure the sounds are on track."
"In the sickness haunting the blues to this day, Heather Newman is just what the doctor ordered. Young, raw, and so unbelievably powerful, Heather brings light to the dark remnants of the blues. While our beloved music has suffered with the loss of so many greats, this artist brings the promise that the blues will survive!"
Kansas City Star
"The Heather Newman Band is poised to follow Samantha Fish and Trampled Under Foot as the next blues-oriented Kansas City Act to achieve national prominence."
