I’m so excited to finally release my first original song that I’ve been working on for a few years 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!

    Heather,
    I know I told you before, but had to come to your blog and tell you again girl, this record has a great sound, jumpy and makes me want to dance. Did I tell you that I also love, love, to dance too! Took dancing for 14 years and taught it for 5 was awesome. You sound so good here. I’ve got it on Itunes too. You worked very hard to achieve this end result. It’s a winner! Thanks for being so kind to me Heather on FB and anytime. Feel free to email me anytime I enjoy talking with you and hearing about your music and life. I’m a lover of dance and music it’s part of my soul and I have to have it everyday. I don’t let anyone take that away from me. It truly makes me so happy. When things are not right in my world it’s music that gets me through. Congrats again on such a great record! Hugs, Diane
