The ever-imaginative Imogen Heap

Computer music is unfortunately a primarily male-dominated field. Iceland’s Bjork is a glaring exception. And England’s Grammy nominated multi-instrumentalist Imogen Heap is another. Heap is a rare breed indeed. Intuitively in tune with her musical destiny, a 5-year-old Imogen etched her name into her parents’ grand piano. By 12, she was utilizing sequencing software and an Atari to make rudimentary 8-bit beats. Garden State soundtrack cornerstone “Let Go” introduced her angelic, breathtaking voice to America via Frou Frou, her one-time partnership with producer Guy Sigsworth. Regular licensing scores with the likes of Shrek, The O.C., Six Feet Under and The Chronicles of Narnia demonstrated her continued likability with American audiences. Expect a goose bump epidemic when Imogen brings her MacBook, translucent piano, Keytar and fairy lights to The Ogden tonight.
