Self-produced, independent, engaged, Imogen Heap blurs the boundaries between pure art form and creative entrepreneurship.
Writing and producing four solo albums, another one as half of Frou Frou and countless collaborations, she’s an artists’ artist. Heap has been nominated for five Grammys, winning two, together with an Ivor Novello, The Artist and Manager Pioneer award and an honorary Doctorate of Technology at UWE. At TED Global 2011 Heap first publicly performed with her mi.mu Gloves - cutting edge gestural music ware she has developed with a team of engineers and scientists.
Becoming a mother in 2014, saw her release Tiny Human as an experiment for Mycelia (Heap’s development hub for music makers and shakers). It became the first song to use smart contracts to pay musicians directly with each purchase. Imogen is also developing Creative Passports, a standard digital ID layer for music makers, and Life of a Song exploring the music industry through the lens of a song. In 2015 Imogen wrote and produced the score for Harry Potter and the Cursed Child and received an Olivier award nomination for Outstanding Achievement in Music. She is the CEO Artist in Residence for the FAC. Heap’s next tour will be starting September 2018 and see her visiting 45 cities in a year for a 3-day music and tech festival encompassing all of the above!
