Trembling Water is a collection of songs infused with the intention to enchant the water molecules of your being into harmonious alignment. The theme of the album also plays on various the water analogies, alluding to the creative process (from the subconscious abyss!), seeking models in nature, and acknowledging its as the source of life and formless flow that circulates between us. 

Heather's band this evening will include Paul "Fresh" Martin (Antioquia, Candelaria, Fresh Juice), Craig Miller (Antioquia, Fresh Juice), Nathaniel Markman (Edward Sharp and Magnetic Zeros), Marlon Aldena (Ginger Ninjas) and other special guests.
