ROCKWiRED RADiO PROFiLES PRESENTS:
SiNGER-SONGWRiTER HEATHER O'NEiLL
AND HER LATEST E.P. 'A FEMiNiST MANiFESTO'
JULY 15, 2011 - Since emerging on the indie scene in 2005 with her debut album Back There, HEATHER O'NEILL has become that rare singer-songwriter who addresses tough topics that provoke and inspire – all the while keeping her fans smiling, tapping their toes and laughing just a little to a vibe she calls “provocative blues with a comedy chaser.” While still committed to injecting “a comical spoonful of sugar to help the medicine go down,” she tackles her toughest subject yet – misogyny, and the way it manifests itself in the still male dominated music industry – on her funk and R&B infused six-song EP whose title says it all about its intent: A FEMINIST MANIFESTO. On a purely musical level, her first release since 2006’s NINE LIVES is O’NEILL’s most fully realized project to date, a powerfully produced work whose catchy melodies and infectious grooves offer a beautiful juxtaposition to the powerful and frequently heartbreaking lyrics. Her crisp, seductive vocals are backed by a full band, including horns, bass, drums and special guest stars, renowned Chicago based guitarist DAVE UHRICH and violinist JERRY GOODMAN, legendary for his groundbreaking jazz fusion work with MAHAVISHNU ORCHESTRA.
