I had the pleasure and good fortune of meeting Heather Peace backstage at Manchester Pride, and when I was asked to photograph her upcoming gig at the beautiful Royal Exchange Theatre, Manchester, I jumped at the chance.
Heather is perhaps better known for her acting having appeared in London’s Burning, The Chase and BBC3’s much-anticipated drama Lip Service, but she’s also an incredibly talented jazz singer and guitarist, with a wonderfully rich voice. Heather’s also originally from my neck of the woods, which makes her pretty easy-going and friendly, and today was no exception, she was on fine form and very entertaining.
The gig was really well received and there were plenty of smiles and audience chat. Chosen shots have been used on her website http://www.heatherpeace.com to promote her ongoing gigs.
