Blue Heron (CA) hailed from Escondido, California. According to their MySpace page the band was “making and playing music for people who have more questions than answers in this life.”
The band says they came together with a desire to play the kind of music the members wanted without the intention of playing in a live atmosphere or even distributing their material.
As of 2011, it appears the band has split.
