The Bend Theater presents ‘Fresh Face Singer/Songwriter Showcase’:
Genevieve Heyward PLUS special guest artist, The Sapsuckers
The Bend Theater presents a new showcase featuring 2 of the Midwest’s most up-and-coming singers/songwriters encompassing original Roots/Americana music.
Since she can remember, Wisconsin based singer-songwriter Genevieve Heyward has grown up with music in her life. Adept at both guitar and piano, she writes her songs based on raw emotion and relatable experiences that cuts through with melody and sultry tone. Straight out of school, she dove head first into music: touring nationally and internationally, either by herself, with her band, or with other well renowned artists. She has released numerous records throughout her career and doesn’t plan on stopping. Her music has hints of indie folk, bedroom pop and indie piano pop, all tied in with her own spin and topped off with a unique and rich voice. Her songs and performing style incorporates humor and connection, making the audience feel heard and immersed.
After releasing her first album before graduating high school, “It’s Not Like Anyone’s Listening”, she went on to tour through the United States by herself or with other artists. She then released her second Ep, “The River” in 2019 at Painted Recordings. While recording and writing, she toured across the United States in Tennessee, California, Texas, Vermont, and eventually headed overseas where she did her first headlining European tour through Norway accompanied by a band. After returning she released her latest album, “The Norway EP”, which she had the opportunity to record in Scandinavia. Now she is currently working on her next project and planning on getting back to the road.
