I’m so excited to finally release my first original song that I’ve been working on for a few years now!
You can hear it below and download it on iTunes right now!


As I mentioned in my last blog about the process of creation, this “sassy plea to unfaithful lovers” was written by Darryl Kromm of Canadian hit 80’s synth pop band Strange Advance.
Guitar was performed by my long time friend  and amazing guitarist, Erol Sora.

With the aim of creating the perfect 80’s inspired pop song, I looked to my producer Jarome to create something that would fulfill a long time goal of an original song that would combine the inspiration of my youth. Rather than try to create a copy of the great 80’s pop songs, Jarome looked to colleague and friend Darryl Kromm who already wrote some of Canada’s best loved and known 80’s pop songs.

Reworking Darryl’s upbeat yet dramatic account of the abandoned lover, Jarome created a modern ‘future disco’ musical arrangement to the 80’s inspired lyrics to create a cool fusion of two musical worlds.

Written and recorded in Vancouver, Cool & Careless was produced in Vancouver and Beijing, and mixed in Jarome Matthew’s new Beijing studio.

It’s already on iTunes, and it will also be available on your favourite online music store very soon.

I look forward to hearing what you think!

     Hi, It’s Heather, singer, musician, and this is my very first blog post! I can’t say that I’d ever imagined writing a blog about myself, but on the advice of my dear friend and producer, Jarome Matthew, I’m going to give it a try.

     So, welcome, and thanks for taking the time to check it out. My intention is to speak freely and openly about my experiences in the music industry over the past few years, both good and bad, and to keep you updated as to what I’m working on currently.

     Many of you have already seen me perform live at various local venues, and have heard and purchased my debut CD from 2005, I’m Beginning To See The Light. I would like to take this time to publicly thank all of you that have supported me from the beginning of that project, your positive feedback, and words of encouragement have been a vital part of my journey. Without all of you, I may not have been able to stay strong through the more difficult times, and believe me, there have been a few of those, but I’ll get into that another time.

     For now, I’ll just say that I’m glad you are here reading what I have to say, and I’m very excited about what 2008 has in store for all of us. Happy Holidays to all of you, and I’ll write again very soon!
