Heidi Loibl learned to play guitar and accordion at an early age. In her adopted home of Bietigheim-Bissingen , where she has lived since she was fifteen, Heidi Loibl sang with the Fischer Choirs from 1969 , where she met her future singing partner Karin. After a few appearances and solo performances with the Fischer Choirs, the two decided to perform as the singing duo "Heidi & Karin" in the future.

After a few failures and rejections from agencies, radio and television, they initially achieved no success with their three single records. But in 1972 Deutschlandfunk used the title Over the Summits of the Mountains in the program at that time, Competition for Notes . Heidi & Karin reached the 1st place and received an appearance on the TV show Funny Musicians .

Radio and television broadcasts followed, as well as tours of Germany, where they were accompanied by musicians from Egerland and the Bundeswehr staff band .

In 1985 the duo Heidi & Karin split up and Heidi Loibl began a solo career. In 1985 she released her first solo LP, Hallo Menschen, on the Bella Musica label . In 2005 she got cancer. From the beginning of 2013 she moderated a radio program on the Internet station Radio Schwabenwelle.
