In March of 2015, Heath decided to go full time into singing and playing music, quit her part time job as a barista in downtown Asheville, and recorded her first album “A Different Stream”. The album was recorded at the amazing Echo Mountain Recording Studios in Asheville, NC with producer Ryan Burns and engineer Clay Miller. “A Different Stream” is a collection of Heath’s first attempt at songwriting and is a seven song album with six original songs and one cover titled “Ready for The Times to Get Better”.
