Justine Blanchet is celebrating the release of her newest single, “Heartbeat” alongside her 18th birthday today. “Heartbeat” is described as a “feel-good country pop song about loving someone for who they truly are.” The bright Canadian singer-songwriter uses her own special blend of pop and country to bring the new song to life.
In addition to the new single, Blanchet has also released the official music video for “Heartbeat” for her fans to enjoy. The video brings the song’s lyrics to life and allows Blanchet to show off her natural acting abilities in front of the camera.
Despite Blanchet’s youth, she is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist artist and has been crafting and fine-tuning her warm and powerful vocals since the age of 12. Blanchet’s musical journey has already earned her an impressive amount of recognition and awards, as well as notable appearances at Nashville’s legendary Bluebird Cafe, Global News Montreal, Big Valley Jamboree, RBC Bluesfest and Festival Country de Lotbinière.
With influences ranging from Shania Twain to Meghan Trainor, Blanchet is often compared to a young Taylor Swift for her fresh and authentic writing style. If you have had the chance to see Blanchet perform, on stage is where Blanchet is truly at home; “My live show is where I really get to connect with the crowd and create an experience for them to never forget” Blanchet explains.
You can check out the new single “Heartbeat” on your favorite music streaming platform today. Blanchet is currently working on new music that she can’t wait to share with her fans.
Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
