Heather Christie is a folk-soul singer, producer, DJ, and the founder of motherhood-focused record label, Möonbabe Records. Her indelible curiosity and independence have led her on a lifelong creative journey exploring the performing arts, dance, and music production. After releasing music through several collaborative projects, she’s harnessed her cumulative talent and DIY spirit under her own name.
Raised in Santa Cruz by a family of Grateful Dead lovers, she’s followed the dream of performing since five years old, spending her childhood in classical choir, teen singing competitions, and starring in Broadway musicals. In college, she discovered modern dance and became inspired by the avant-garde choreographer Anna Halprin. When Heather started learning Ableton she saw an opportunity to connect with people through bass and trance energy, unlocking new realms of consciousness and self-identity.
Heather has co-founded the music projects Feral Fauna, Silk Drop, Honeywild, and Sirens of Soul, with Feral Fauna’s “Tincture” gaining viral recognition with millions of streams. In 2016, she was on American Idol’s “Hollywood Week” episode as a second-round finalist. Today she’s fascinated by the music of other cultures with her focus on writing, singing, and producing her tribal house tracks—and releasing them on her label. For live shows, she DJs, sings, and dances while her husband accompanies her on world instruments, such as the sintir from Morocco.
Her first child, a daughter named Naya, reinforced her belief that there should be a holistic space within the music industry where female music artists and mamas are celebrated and supported. Möonbabe Records is her answer. She leads through empowerment, for herself and other creatrix mothers, and empathetically maneuvers time constraints while honoring the feminine cycles.
What’s next? Heather plans on releasing two forthcoming EPs: For My Daughter and For My Brother. The second is about a sibling who died of a heroin overdose exactly two months before her daughter was born: a duality of death and birth.
After exploring the healing arts for a lifetime, she radiates positivity. She says, “It’s yet another pursuit. It’s another level of creativity. I believe my greatest work is my life, my whole life. This is just a part of it.”
