Singer/Actress Honor Heffernan began her career in 1971. Over the years she's sung pop, folk, rock, blues and jazz, but has concentrated on jazz since the 80s years. She is also a stage and screen actrice, best known for her roles in Neil Jordan's 'Angel' and the RTE soap opera 'Fair City'.
She began singing with Alan Dee's The Watchtower in the early 70's. She recorded an interesting LP with The Outsiders in 1985 and a rather underwhelming solo debut LP 'Stormy Waters' in 1986, a collection of snoozey synthpop tracks with lazy sax and fake Sade accents.
Her jazz career took off in the early 80s when she began singing regularly in Dublin with the jazz pianist Jim Doherty and collaborated with Noel Kelehan. Her second album 'Chasing The Moon'  was much more representative. It was recorded with Kelehan and featured Peter Ainscough, Richie Buckley, Mike Nolan and Martin Curry. Since then, she has sung with top Irish musicians such as Noel Kelehan, Stephen Keogh (drums), Richie Buckley, Dave Fleming, John Wadham (drums), Mike Nielsen and Louis Stewart. In October 2005 she released 'Fire and Ice' with Barry Green (piano), Jeremy Brown (bass) and Stephen Keogh (drums) which was very well received.
She became a regular attraction at the annual Guinness Cork Jazz Festival. She worked in Norway with the Knut Mikalsen Trio and the Sandvika Big Band conducted by trombonist/ arranger Rob McConnell. She also sang with the BBC Big Band, recording two concerts for radio with them.
