Cherisha Heart has had a guitar in her hands since the age of three and has been honing her skills ever since. Raised in a musical family, Heart developed her stage confidence by performing at a young age, busking with her brothers on the streets of Santa Cruz, CA. With the support and encouragement of their parents, the kids performed on radio stations, television, and at every local venue their dad could book them in.
Now primarily a solo artist, Cherisha Heart carves out her own musical path, puts her feelings to melodies, and wants to inspire others the way she's been inspired by her favorite musicians and mentors. She's recently performed with Michael Franti and Spearhead, and collaborates with talented local musicians in her Northern California hometown and on the road. She's toured throughout Mexico and played in notable venues in the U.S., including San Francisco, Austin, and Nashville.
Cherisha Heart's lyrics explore personal themes of heartbreak, loss, and death, but also share the joy, love, and positivity she feels is still attainable in this world. A master of melody and harmony, she creates a sound both soulful and sweet, gentle and powerful, delicate and strong. Balancing the tension of these contrasts is an essential facet of her work.
Her solo debut album, “Mountain Maiden,” was released in 2011 and she has been featured in many collaborative projects since then. Music Video and single entitled “Dreams” was released July, 2019. Music Video and EP entitled "The Good Life" was released February, 2021.
