I believe that music is one of the most powerful communicators for positive change in the world. My creative motivation is to be as innovative as possible with sound, to write songs which open the heart, and to work within the community teaching and sharing the special energy that is… music.
~o0o~
I got my first guitar when I was 8 years old. I learnt to play music ‘by ear’ and have never had any lessons in music. I have learnt along the way through experience and intuition, experimentation and taking on the challenges which have come my way. I recorded my first demo tape when I was 14 which got handed around to people in the arts industry in Adelaide, and from there I was given opportunities to perform professionally… I haven’t looked back since!
~o0o~

Now at 31 years old I have been involved in countless music projects. As a solo artist singer/songwriter I have toured around Australia and overseas, released several cd's independently, won a bunch of music awards and a Young Citizen of the Year Award, and performed in music festival events. Over the recent years of my career I have noticed that my music is aligned with the social consciousness movement sweeping the globe, with more awareness about climate change, war, poverty, violence (none of these topics are necessarily new to us), but there is an increasing number of musicians and artists making music for a better world, for tolerance, peace and spiritual growth. My mission is to put these messages of change and positivity into music and songs that is accessible to the general population (John Butler is a good example of this, same with Michael Franti and John Lennon) The Heather Frahn Trio has recently been played on Nova FM regularly as well as Triple J’s Roots’n’All program. ~o0o~
Other music projects include original composition for film, theatre and dance, music for radio plays and audio documentaries, songwriting and conducting with community choirs, leading music workshops and performance projects with many different people from all walks of life, particularly women (including youth with mental illness, Aboriginal people, babies, toddlers, teens and adults with severe disabilities, people from regional remote Australia, young mothers, emerging young artists, the gay and lesbian community, African migrants etc)… I have recorded and created remixes and electronic music, I play an unusually beautiful instrument called the "steel drum harp" which I had custom made that is made with 44 gallon drum, harp strings and Tibetan singing bowls, I facilitate workshops teaching hand drumming, singing and voice work, songwriting and recording, I have recorded ambient healing cd’s.
~o0o~
I have been sponsored by Salvi’s Fine Guitars with a custom made 8 stringed hybrid acoustic guitar-bass which sounds like a bass guitar and 12 string guitar all at the same time.
~o0o~
I have always been passionate about providing opportunities for other artists and since the late 90’s I have organised music events to help provide audiences and artists alike the chance to share music. Events include J.A.M (Just Acoustic Music), Olivewood Festival (taking original music to regional areas), The Feast of Female Voice which showcased some of Australia’s finest female artists for 5 years running, the Feast of Female Voice also won an award for “Best Live Event” voted by the public in the dB Magazine Awards, the “Sing Out! Songwriting Project which united songwriters with diverse individuals from the gay and lesbian community to write songs about the individual’s lives and stories. Sing Out was presented successfully for 3 years running. 
~o0o~
In October 2008 I toured for a second time in Belgium Europe! It was amazing! You can watch some videos of me performing live in Belgium here! I'll be returning to Belgium again in April 2012.... so stay tuned for that!
I then went to the UK and was mentored in harmonic singing, sound healing and gong healing. Since then I have worked at the Flinders Medical Centre hospital in Adelaide doing sound relaxation with patients and staff! I also had the pleasure of working with The Big Heart in the UK recording vocals on two of The Big Heart's new songs. You can hear them on the player on the CMM site, on the main page here.
~o0o~
I love experimenting, pushing my boundaries and learning new things. What I do best is create, I aim to do this in different forms through sound, song and lyrics. I hope you enjoy my songs!
~o0o~
Thanks for dropping by and giving me this opportunity to share my work with you!

In Melody & Peace, Heather

Girl... you most definately rock!!
"....Your truth lend you strength
Your Faith give you courage
Your heart hope
Love let you trust
That there'll be an angel there
To hear you when you call
There'll be an angel there
To catch you if you should fall
Long may you stand...."

Thanks Heather :) Thank you for creating this wonderful network, or rather for creating a vehicle of physical reinforcement that goes to show the 'internet' that now more people are coming to speak of and accept they are a part of.

It's a wonderful website and it's great to see us all working towards the same, or similar goals - music overcomes race and creed and unites everyone with one voice, and it's wonderful to find a hub of artists who follow along the same creedo!

Peace and Love

Hi heather
i have added some new tracks on my page. just a thought to chew on, 'One drum,One beat' would make a great CMM anthem if anyone else wanted to add to it, we could remix it with additional vox/gtr/perc?
I mention this as it is possible we may be coming over for my dads 70th birthday between july and august - just checking prices at the moment, and school have ok'd me to take time out. watch this space.
love light & lettuce! Nick

Hi Heather,

Thankyou for welcoming me to this network. I'm glad to be accepted and become a part of it. I'll definitely check out everything that the Conscious Music Movement has to offer. I would definitely like to arrange a CMM concert sometime in the future for sure. I hope your Walk A Mile Concert for Compassion went well in Melbourne...and yes it would have been great to meet :)

Anyways, thanks again,

peace,

Linton
