Typically, artists move to Los Angeles to find fortune and fame but musician/songwriter Heather Green is anything but typical. Instead, California resident Heather Green left the glitz and glamour of sunny L.A. for the chilly and historic city of Halifax, Nova Scotia and hasn't looked back since. The love of one person brought her to Halifax but the love of an entire city made her stay. Since her move in August of 2009, Heather has become a prominent and welcomed member of the incredibly rich and talented Nova Scotia music community. With her 2008 debut album One Year Happy under her belt, Heather returned to the studio with local music producer/genius Daniel Ledwell (Jenn Grant, In Flight Safety) to record her second album, the critically acclaimed Your Last War.
Your Last War is a love letter to and from the Halifax music community as it features performances from award winning East Coast musicians Jenn Grant, Daniel Ledwell, Rose Cousins, Ria Mae, and more. The album became an instant critical hit and garnered Heather two East Coast Music Award nominations for Pop Recording of the Year and Rising Star Recording of the Year as well as a nomination for Best Alternative Recording of the Year at the Nova Scotia Music & Industry Awards. Heather's star continues to shine brighter and brighter as she has shared the stage with Grammy and Juno award winning musician Gordie Sampson, six-time ECMA winning folk legend Ron Hynes, and accomplished singer/songwriter/producer A.J. Croce. Additionally, the album's opening track The Day I Was Born was featured on a recent episode of the hit CTV/CW television series The LA Complex.

Whether you are attending one of her soulful and intimate solo performances or a full blown rock gig backed by Halifax rockers Young River, a Heather Green show is something that cannot be missed. Be prepared for a full sensory experience while Heather's hauntingly poetic lyrics bring tears to your eyes, her powerful melodies bring goose bumps to your arms, her witty banter brings a smile to your face, and you leave the show with a new warmth in your heart. Heather Green with Young River will be touring Toronto for the very first time for Canadian Music Week on Friday, March 22nd at The Cameron House and Saturday, March 23rd at The Rivoli for Music Nova Scotia's Tiki Stage.
