Heatherlyn

The Short:

Inspired by the irresistible way music can connect and carry us, Heatherlyn has built an international community around songs, poetry, and gatherings designed to pull listeners deeper into their own stories and the stories of others. Her passion for theology and the beautiful complexity of the human spirit is present in everything she creates, resonant in the echoes of the soul, rock, and roots influences that weave through her eclectic sound. Whether she is curating sacred space through music at HeatherlynMusic.com, on the road in partnership with patrons, faith communities, and social justice organizations around the world, or as the Worship Minister at Left Hand Community Church here in Boulder County, CO, her motivation rests in the firmly held belief that love is a powerful force of hope and healing, and that music is a uniquely powerful expression of love.

The Long:

You might say that Heatherlyn got into music because music got into Heatherlyn. Inspired by the irresistible way it can connect and carry us, she’s built an international community around songs, poetry, and gatherings designed to pull listeners deeper into their own stories and the stories of others. Her passion for theology and the beautiful complexity of the human spirit is present in everything she creates, resonant in the echoes of the soul, rock, and roots influences that weave through her eclectic sound. It’s a passion that stems from her firmly held belief that love is a powerful force of hope and healing, and that music is a uniquely powerful expression of love.

Alongside her life partner, Jason, Heatherlyn creates and curates sacred space through music at HeatherlynMusic.com and as the Worship Minister at Left Hand Community Church in her current home base of Boulder County, CO. From the very first time she led a congregation as a four-year-old in a small rural Pentacostal church to the hundreds of evenings her life as a traveling troubadour has allowed her to spend in living rooms and on stages around the world, Heatherlyn holds her role as a compassionate witness and storyteller with unwavering gratitude.  She’s had the privilege to serve with the organization PeaceJam, to perform alongside Nobel Peace Prize Laureates, to partner with women’s leadership organization She is Called, and to contribute to the global 9BEATS Collective. She has travelled with and performed in support of internationally recognized authors, on behalf of countless civic groups and social justice projects, and in partnership with faith communities around the world. All of her projects and collaborations are supported by the Heatherlyn Music CSA, a community of contributors who have been moved to bring her message of peace, compassion, and celebration to the world.
