Heidi Spencer Gets Signed

Click to enlarge

Heidi Spencer has been making music in Milwaukee since her teens and she recently got some major recognition. A representative from Bella Union - which has artists like Fleet Foxes and Andrew Bird - heard her music on Myspace and slowly worked out a deal to put out her third album, Under Streetlight Glow

I had a chance to talk to her after her show in a church down in Austin for SXSW. We talked about getting signed, cheating on her confirmation test and making her own video for the single "Alibi."

Her CD release show is Saturday April 2nd @ Linneman’s Riverwest Inn. You should go.
