Heidi Vogel, a singer from London, initially started making her professional debut touring with Cirque du Soleil, she became a frequent face in the London and LA jazz & soul scene where she became involved with The Cinematic Orchestra as their lead singer and has toured extensively with the band for over 5 years. This platform established her extraordinarily rich and complex vocal timbre and built her reputation outside of her home city of London, UK. By 2007, Vogel had toured all over the USA, Australia, South Africa, Canada and Europe and ended the year with a sold out concert at The Royal Albert Hall and a stunning performance live on the Jimmy Kimmel TV show.
She then went on to perform the main stage at The Big Chill Festival UK in 2010, and the following year graced the stage as support for Erykah Badu at Dubai’s Chill Out Festival amongst numerous other appearances at North Sea Jazz Festival, Coachella, Gilles Peterson Worldwide and Blue Note Jazz Festival. With every performance, Heidi has been steadily exceeding her rich vocal abilities whilst gaining influential critics’ approval as a soloist.
Heidi Vogel's ‘Turn Up The Quiet’ album followed on from her many successes as front-woman of the critically acclaimed Cinematic Orchestra (Ninja Tune). The album is her deeply moving debut and made up of her interpretations of songs by great composers including Antonio Carlos Jobim, Vinicius de Moraes and Joe Henderson. Heidi is accompanied throughout the album by the very talented guitarist Josue Ferreira as well as guests musicians including vocalist Cleveland Watkiss, pianist Austin Peralta and Ivo Neame. The album also features remixes from The Cinematic Orchestra, IG Culture and Emanative.
