“Heidi Osgood-Metcalf draws upon the inspiration of the dramatic
and varied landscape of Montana to create her latest album, Montañas.
Her music boasts brilliant skills as a composer and pianist, but it is the power of the emotion
that she brings to her pieces that resonates most deeply with us. One of the greatest compliments I can offer any musician is that they remind me of no one else, and this is certainly the case with Heidi.
Featuring world-class musicians on many of the pieces, the album moves gracefully from intimacy to exuberance as only Heidi could express it”

I am a product of a very musical family. My parents have traveled the world singing with the North Country Chorus and "strongly" encouraged me to take piano lessons at an early age...OK, so they were right about that one, and for that I am now genuinely grateful! I started writing music when I was twelve years old, and have been studying classical piano since I was seven. My training started with Katerina Munn, who instilled in me the importance of knowing how to write theory - a knowledge that I am eternally grateful for whenever I create a new song.
I went on to play the Clarinet in my High School Band as well as orchestra in college. During my senior year of High School, I received scholarships as a result of some of the original music I had composed for piano. I had started studying music in college until bigger and better dreams beckoned me west. It wasn’t long before I was disillusioned with “Top 40” music, which ultimately made me question the direction that I wanted for my own music.
After 20 years of allowing the musical inspiration to lay dormant, I have finally come to peace with the true direction that I want for my music - to play from the heart, and be true to myself....and a few movie scores wouldn't hurt either!
