Heath first began writing at age 13 and credits his hometown’s legendary hotspot for songwriters, the Bluebird Café, as the place he first experienced music that moved him. Heath’s artistry and ability to connect with audiences have compelled countless media outlets across the nation to platform his story and music. Coverage includes Billboard magazine, “CBS Evening News with Katie Couric,” Relevant magazine and a 2011 feature by the Wall Street Journal.

Other key spotlights include Heath’s “Give Me Your Eyes” (What If We 8/19/2008) which was selected for The Discovery Channel’s “On The Case With Paula Zahn,” as well as a feature by the Sunday edition of The New York Times as a GRAMMY-nominated newcomer “that shouldn't be allowed to slip through the cracks.”

Heath’s third album, Leaving Eden (1/18/2011) debuted No. 1 on the Billboard Christian Sales chart and is supported by non-stop direct-support and headlining tours. The hit maker’s new single “The Light In Me” released to radio on 4/29 and set in motion momentum driving his 40-city “Leaving Eden Fall Tour,” with special guest, Britt Nicole.

Since then, she has established herself as a pop-rock mainstay with her deep, honest lyrics and soaring vocals as evidenced by her No. 1 debut on the Billboard Top Christian Albums chart, No. 62 on the Billboard 200, with her sophomore project, The Lost Get Found, (Aug. 11, 2009) produced by Robert Marvin (Mat Kearney, tobyMac) and Dan Muckala (Brandon Heath, Backstreet Boys). The album also went straight to No. 1 on iTunes’ Christian/Gospel Top Albums chart, and peaked in the Top 10 on iTunes Top 100 albums chart. The lead single, “The Lost Get Found,” rocketed to No. 1 on the Radio & Records CHR chart, spending eight consecutive weeks in the top position while climbing to No. 1 on iTunes’ Christian/Gospel Top Songs chart as well. The Lost Get Found also delivered hit songs such as "Walk On The Water," "Hanging On," and "Headphones." This studio-release followed Britt's debut album, Say It, which also produced three Top 10 radio singles “You,” “Set the World on Fire,” and “Believe.”

Britt's songs have been featured in the major motion picture "Soul Surfer," LucasArt’s Thrillville 2 video game, “Legally Blonde 3” DVD, MTV’s “The Hills,” NBC’s The Biggest Loser, Lifetime's Drop Dead Diva, ABC Family’s “Campus Crush” promo and featured on the soundtrack for the family friendly film “Ice Castles.” The North Carolina native is currently working on her next studio album and expects an upcoming 2012 release.
