In 1961, he first appeared on the trio OK Singers. Most of his recordings were pop versions of traditional folk songs; for example, "How Blue Blooms the Gentian" ("Blau Blühtblüht Derder Enzian"), an adaptation of the folk song "The Swiss Maiden" ("Das Schweizermaedel").
 
His stage name comes from his sister Hannelore's difficulty pronouncing his given name "Heinz Georg".<ref name="Official Web Site" />
 
In February 2013, Heino released a new album, called "Mit freundlichen GrüssenGrüßen" (''Yours sincerely''), which topped the German album charts. The record is a collection of cover versions of popular German songs from [[Die Ärzte]], [[Peter Fox (musician)|Peter Fox]], [[Rammstein]] and others. It is as such a Pop-Rock/Metal-record instead of Heino's typical Schlager and Volksmusik style. The album earned Gold for being sold over 100,000 times.
 
In December 2014, Heino released a new album, "Schwarz blüht der Enzian" (''[[Gentiana|Gentian]] blooms black''), referring to one of his greatest hits "Blau blüht der Enzian" (''Gentian blooms blue'') and to the Rock-/Metal style of the record in which some of his own songs and traditional German [[Volksmusik]] are covered.
