It is rare to find an artist who startles
your senses on many levels,
engaging the part of your brain that
makes you shake your hips, but also
raise your fist in solidarity.
Heather Mae does just that.
WEEP, who together, bring the music to life, and take the listener on a journey of true emotions! WEEP's journey began in Minneapolis, MN, with Robin Lynn Winkelmann, Kim Paschke, and former bassist Kristine Gretillat. Taking a detour to Ithaca, NY, where they recorded two CDs, and toured endlessly on the East Coast, (including frequent returns to New York City and the now defunct CBGB’s), Kim and Robin, on the heels of Kristine’s departure from WEEP, have continued the journey to their current home in Central Florida, where they are now gracing stages with their new, very talented lineup: Keyboardist Melanie England, Rhythm Guitarist Suzanne Daly, Drummer Kat Winters, Kim now on bass and Robin. With over 3 hours of original music, electrifying live performances, and their EP, “Rock It” and their newly released EP "Live It", this group of women is captivating listeners and spreading the message of peace far and wide with their hook-laden songs and their magnetic appeal!
An imaginative lyricist with a powerhouse voice, Heather Mae is forging new ground with her newest album—entitled
“I AM ENOUGH”, and has earned early praise by FLURT Magazine as “...every bit appealing to the ears as it is empowering.”
The collection of five songs is a bold breakout from her former years as a folk singer-songwriter strumming a ukulele. Mae breaks ground in “I AM ENOUGH” not only for her interesting indie-pop sound, but also for her musical take on touchy subjects ranging from LGBTQ discrimination, gender stereotypes, body image, and mental health issues. This is what sets Mae apart—she seeks to write music for those that need an anthem and doesn’t shy away from tackling topics not often heard in pop music.
Blend infectious melodies, tight harmonies, and an in your face modern funk rock style with lyrics that echo the human condition, and you emerge with a uniquely diverse sound that heals, transforms and promotes love and peace; the sound of the 5 individuals known as
