Originally from Newfoundland, Toronto, ON-based award-winning and Juno-nominated jazz/ adult contemporary artist, Heather Bambrick is back with a brand new video for her single, “Homeland” from her new album, Fine State, which was released earlier this year.
“I left Newfoundland in 1993 and while I was happy to pursue my dream of studying and performing music, leaving my Island home was one of the hardest things I’ve ever done in my life and remaining so far away becomes harder and harder as the years pass. Anyone who’s ever been to Newfoundland knows the natural and spiritual beauty that exists there, and I wanted to paint that image, while ultimately writing a “love song to the home”. My pal (and brilliant writer) Jodi Proznick encouraged me to write more from my heart, so I passed my initial ideas on to her for input. Then, I reached out to another friend, award-winning composer – and fellow Newfoundlander – Keith Power to help with the chorus. I think the result is exactly what I wanted it to be, and I hope the crowd back “Home” will hear this and know how much I love and miss Newfoundland.”
I’m Jenna, and I am the founder and editor of Canadian Beats. I have had a strong love for Canadian music, which started many years ago. I have a passion for promoting these talented Canadian bands and artists, and that’s how Canadian Beats came to be. I am so proud of what it has become over the last few years, with many talented music lovers and writers coming together to spread the word of Canada’s music.
