Please check out my band, The Lyre Effect!  Below are links, a music video I shot and edited and our bio.  Have a fun and safe weekend!! Our new album, Paraíso, is also set for release soon.  -Heather


Please download our Remixed tracks for free and listen to our music here:








The Lyre Effect is an experiment bringing poetry and music together through two unique perspectives: Stuart Armitage “The Ambient Punk” and Heather Arneson “The Raving Lyre.”  St. Paul musician and producer Robert Romani originally recorded some of Heather’s poetry, and after she posted the work on myspace, this caught the attention of Stoo, a seasoned drummer and music producer.  They began collaborating in the fall of 2006, spurring The Lyre Effect. 


The unsettling mix of ambient electronic rock and bittersweet broken soul poetry piqued the interest of many, and continues to evolve.  Our music was playlisted Australia’s UMF radio, Insomnia UK, and Rock 365 stations.  Also, it was featured in awarded film fest movies.

I love to write, cook, and take photos. As an INFP personality type, I truly care about others and my values. I'm a fraternal twin, have two older brothers, and I served in AmeriCorps. I love my family and my boyfriend. They rock! For years, I collaborated online with Stuart Armitage (UK). Our band, The Lyre Effect, released several albums, though we never met in person. Additionally, I've written a novel, novella, poetry book, and children's book series. Being into the visual arts from a young age, I've had my artwork featured in several gallery exhibits, enjoyed providing assistance on music video sets, as well as acted in and co-directed a few short films. Playing piano and singing are also passions of mine (wrote my first song and poem when I was 9 years old). Currently, I'm part of the writing group, Lead Us Ink, and published my first poetry book in 2015. In this technological age, I think it's important to share the written word, something that will always be sacred and personal. I hope this blog will help me to connect more with others, and I look forward to networking with readers like you. I want to find out about new music, interesting articles, and artwork. So, please, reach out to me. I might even have some good suggestions for you. Take care, and happy reading!
