Hearing Heather

Since the release of her debut album, A Fine Line, (April 1st, Cadence Music), Canadian singer-songwriter Heather Rankin has been on a bit of a whirlwind – co-hosting the ECMA’s (East Coast Music Awards), embarking on an Eastern Canadian tour to support her album, and then heading home to Cape Breton to shoot a gorgeous new video for the single, We Walk As One.

The track features the additional vocals of her siblings, Cookie and Jimmy Rankin, and was shot in and around the community of Mabou on the west coast of Cape Breton where Heather grew up, the youngest in a family of 12 children.

After more than a decade with the multi-platinum-selling musical group, The Rankin Family, Heather, now 48, is stepping out as a solo artist. She wrote seven of the 11 tracks. The album was three years in the making:

“I can’t say I aspired to be a solo artist. But, sometimes life will leave you in directions that you never expect.

The song pays tribute to my roots. It’s the thread that connects my past and my present.
