Heather Mae is a social-justice songwriter whose song “I Am Enough” has become a self-love anthem for many. With her second album, Glimmer, Heather Mae is helping people to know they aren’t alone by writing music about mental health.
“I’m fat, queer, have Bipolar Disorder 2, and I’m done being ashamed of all of the above.” – Heather Mae
1 in 4 people have a mental health disorder, and it’s Heather’s hope to help people hold onto their glimmer. It’s her desire to provide songs to give people the strength to just exist.
As you can see by watching Heather perform “I Am Enough” (from her first album), her voice is as powerful as her passion!
Just as she did with her first album, Heather is pre-selling her second album via Kickstarter and providing additional perks to raise funds.
I encourage you to join me in supporting her!
Take a moment to watch her Kickstarter video to understand why I am so honored to have such a talented and amazing person as a guest on my podcast – GLIMMER: Heather Mae Makes A Record For The Light-Seekers
