Heather Peace is currently on tour, wowing fans up and down the country with beautiful tracks from her album, Fairytales, which was released on May 21.
We were lucky enough to catch up with the gorgeous actress ahead of her sell-out show in Glasgow on Wednesday night and she took time out to treat us to a performance of Sabotage – a track from the record.
We first heard Heather perform last year, when she was playing at Sloans in Glasgow.
Her beautiful voice and heartfelt performance made her captivating to watch, so we’re not surprised she’s back doing bigger shows with her own material.
Speaking just before she took to the stage at St. Andrews in the Square this week, Heather admitted it was nerve-wracking performing her own songs, but thankfully the reaction from fans has been incredible, with many of her loyal followers travelling to as many dates as possible to watch her in action.
Fairytales has been funded in part by Heather’s 2011 sell out UK tour and in part by Pledgemusic. She met her Pledgemusic target within seven hours of her page going live, such is the demand from her fans to get their hands on this album!
She said “There are quite a lot of dark songs on the album, I really spilled my guts out into the lyrics so the title Fairytales might be misleading.
“But my favourite Fairytales were always the Grimm’s Brother versions anyway, I just think everyone writes better songs when they’re a bit miserable. When you’re happy you’re with your friends in the pub aren’t you?”
Heather told us she loves being in Glasgow as she had so many fun times filming hit drama Lip Service up here. That’s just as well, as straight after the tour finishes she will be moving to the city until Christmas, as she will be filming Waterloo Road.
Good news for Scottish fans, who are looking forward to getting to meet Heather and fellow Lip Service lovelies at the hotly anticipated Lip Service finale event in Glasgow on Sunday 15th July. Visit www.facebook.com/lipservicekudos for more details.
We’ll leave you to enjoy Heather’s performance in the player above and stay tuned to stv.tv on Monday for our interview with Heather, where she discusses the future of Lip Service, whether her passion lies with music or acting and answers fan’s questions.
