Born in The Island of Dominica (British West Indies), singer-songwriter Heston grew up with music all around him. Being surrounded by reggae, pop, classical, soul, R&B, rock music was commonplace and it is no surprise that radio, along with a collection of his father's old records, would open the key to his soul and love for all types of music. From Barbara Streisand to Aretha Franklin, The Bee Gees, Marvin Gaye, Elton John, Beres Hammond, Stevie Wonder and Michael Jackson (to name a few) each musician looped a thread into his soul, and after listening to his music, it is clear that he has been influenced by the best.
With a career in music that began in Atlanta, GA, launched by a self-titled EP, he has defined his journey as a full-time musician, composer, songwriter and producer. "Creating timeless music has always been my ultimate goal," says Heston with a poised yet humble demeanor. "I want to leave the world with music that can be played for a lifetime."
A pleasant, easygoing vocal manner coupled with a sexy stage presence has consistently yielded a ground swelling of fans and lovers of his music. His song "IF" became popular on XM Satellite through Airtran Airlines Inflight Entertainment, The Soul Lounge, Vol. 1: The Vibe Compilation, This Is Soul 2005 CD (Soul Brother (UK), 2005), Atlanta Soul - Soulful Kinship From The Phoenix City CD (Unisex (UK), 2005) and was once one of the most downloaded independent soul singles on iTunes. "ANGEL" also from the self-titled EP closed the year 2003 as one of DJ Richard Searling's Year End Top Most 50 Played at Smooth FM Manchester UK. Read more on Last.fm.
