Heather Blush and The Uppercuts are a trio of rogue troubadours who knock the socks off every new audience they meet. Based in Calgary, Alberta, their sound can be described as somewhere between the "Adult Alternative" styles of Sarah Slean and Sarah Harmer, and old "Ella/Louis-style" vocal jazz/blues. Heather’s voice is often compared to Norah Jones and Maria Muldaur. With energetic, audience-engaging shows, she is quickly becoming known for songwriting that covers all bases between witty sarcasm and gutwrenching honesty. With "Captain" Steve Hazlett on drums and recently a rotating cast of stellar upright bass players, this trio packs a punch and leaves a lasting impression.

The ensemble’s first album was released in June 2008. Vice is a collection of twelve songs focusing in on various "vices", including the usual suspects (alcohol, bad relationship choices) and some surprises (music and travel as vices). Only a year after its release, Versa was released as a follow-up album. It is of course the antithesis to Vice, and explores the lighter side of life. Both albums have been well-received across Canada on CBC radio, as well as university and independent stations, landing on many charts.

2010 has started off as a great year, with the trio performing at the Vancouver Winter Olympics, and Heather's song "I Don't Believe Me Anymore" being chosen as a finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest.
