After his guitar was stolen during the spring of 2000, Heath assembled a demo CD and sold it in order to raise money for a new guitar. The CD, which Heath eventually released as Early Stuff in 2004, introduced his soaring, impassioned tenor voice to the world. Meanwhile, he worked on second album, Soldier, with producer Chris Davis; it, too, appeared in 2004. Heath then signed with Reunion Records and issued his official debut, Don't Get Comfortable, in the fall of 2006.
Don't Get Comfortable proved to be quite popular on Christian radio, where "I'm Not Who I Was" became a chart-topping single and two additional songs cracked the Top 20. Heath received several Dove nominations and took home the award for Best New Artist. He received additional accolades for his second album, What If We, which arrived in 2008 and netted a Grammy nomination one year later for Best Pop Gospel Album. ~ Steve Leggett & Andrew Leahey, Rovi
