Heather Vassar Debuts New Album “Chasing Beautiful”

(Colorado Springs, CO) September 23, 2010 – Texas native Heather Vassar has released her debut CD titled “Chasing Beautiful.” Produced by Dove Award winning songwriter/producer Don Koch (4-HIM, Michael English, Newsong, Philips Craig & Dean, Avalon, Larnelle Harris), Heather states that her music, “will be an entry to my heart and soul. I hope through my songs that you become just as passionate about Jesus, life, love, and laughter as I am.”
Her first two radio singles off the project for AC/CHR formats (“I Don’t Want to be Free”) and INSPO formats (“Chasing Beautiful”) released on September 14, 2010. Steven Yake of Yake Films (Nashville, TN) produced the music videos for both singles, which are powerful expressions of each song’s message.
In the spirit of the 1975 Billboard smash hit “At Seventeen” by Janis Ian, a song which captured the hearts and minds of young girls and women worldwide and brought national attention to the issue of beauty in today’s culture, “Chasing Beautiful” brings a Christian message of encouragement for girls and women bombarded with advertising from today’s media about beauty.
“Every girl wants to be considered physically attractive,” says Heather, “but many girls today take it to the highest level.” In “Chasing Beautiful,” I want to remind them of what Scripture says in Proverbs 31:30 that, ‘Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.’”
Heather Vassar was born and raised in a small west Texas town called Big Spring. Upon graduating high school, Heather received an offer to play softball at Texas Tech University. This had been a dream of hers and she thought this is exactly what life would look like. However, it was there she realized that softball wasn’t her biggest dream anymore, so she quit the game. In her second year at college, Heather found a new passion – music. She began playing any instrument she could get her hands on. She graduated from Texas Tech University in May of 2009 with a Marketing degree and also attended South Plains Junior College for Commercial Music Performance. She now lives in Nashville, TN.
“I want to encourage my fans to fulfill their biggest dreams
and to put Christ first in every part of their lives.” -Heather
