CD REVIEW: Dance Into the Desert by Heather Gruber

We’ve got quite the irony for you today. We’re dumbfounded at what Heather Gruber was able to do in her latest album release, “Dance Into The Desert”. When you first hear the music, you’re feeling very cheerful, very optimistic. We don’t usually make too many comparisons but we felt her music is a lot like Jason Mraz, that feel-good type of music that completely transforms any type of sad mood you might be in into a happier, more motivated self.

Well, when you listen a little bit more closely; if you move past the cheerful tones of the guitar, the beautiful chimes of the percussion, you get a much deeper album than you first anticipated.

As Heather Gruber states it, “This album tells the story of my leap of faith to start a life in Los Angeles. It’s my story. It covers the highs and lows, the beauty and the struggle, and wraps it up into a pretty little bow.”

Being an LA native, we know exactly how tough it is for musicians to make it onto the scene. The struggles, the constant battle with the industry is never-ending. But, what we love about Heather, she’s not afraid to tell you her story, to tell you the struggles she had to endure. We admire such courage and we find it admirable that she’s willing to speak up for others to listen and learn from. “Dancing On The Edge” is the perfect track to start off the album because it sets you up for what the entire album is going to be.

We ask you to take a chance and listen to Heather Gruber’s new album, “Dancing Into The Desert” and learn from what she has to say.
