About heidi and the el cats
I was born in the High Park area in Toronto, Canada where my Dad was a jeweller on Bloor Street West and grew up listening to the sounds of Motown in my basement. I attended Swansea School and Humberside. Went to NYC became a designer....Music came late for me, I didn't start really performing until well into my 30's when I met Cliff and had to get over stage fright and other things. Cliff Guest was born in Miami, Florida and played music all his life. Cliff is a film director and has worked for Geffen Records in Los Angeles, making music videos. We began playing blues after being inspired by bluesman Keith Brown at The Bamboo Room in Lake Worth, Florida. The blues finds it's way into your life, no matter who you are or where you came from. I've had the blues, big time.Been way up, been way down... Our songs feature the harmonica playing of Jason Ricci, our good friend and harmonica superstar.
