CD Review: Heatherlyn Is "Storydwelling" On New Release

Coming September 13 is the newest release from Heatherlyn and her band The Storydwellers. The album entitled "Storydwelling" is the sophomore effort from this roots, rock, soul singer. In 2010, she was awarded the Midwest "People's Choice" Winner of NPR's Mountain Stage Performance Contest and her live performances lend to her newest studio release.

The album is made up of 12 tracks ranging from passionate covers like "Wayfaring Stranger" and "Jack Riddle" to wonderfully inspired originals like "Be The Love" and "Put On Your Climbing Shoes." The latter song is one of the most up-beat songs on the album as Heatherlyn stresses the importance of racial unity. Her folk storytelling shines through on "Home With You Continues" and "Peace On Earth." Heatherlyn adds a little reggae groove to "We Have A Dream" and balances that with the bluesy feel of "You've Gotta Move." Heatherlyn has her hand in many different musical genres and the one important constant is her smooth, sultry, powerful voice as displayed in the closing song "You'll Never Know."

Heatherlyn is busy for the next couple months in her home state of Minnesota. If you are in the area, be sure to check her out. For a complete list of tour dates and locations, please visit
