""...Heather breaks into the attics of our emotions""

On The Moon a Bullethole, Heather breaks into the attics of our emotions, urging us to dig through the past and reflect on where we are. Perhaps her way, as an artist, of helping us learn about ourselves - so we can move forward to the future, led by the glimmers of hope which subtly and skillfully underscore her songs.
-Dawud Wharnsby, singer-songwriter - Dawud Wharnsby, Singer-Songwriter

""...listening to this CD is like listening to my heart""

Heather Chappell's debut CD is full of mystery and wonder. The tunes linger in your head long after the last note has faded. I think that the best way to enjoy Heather's music is to brew yourself a big pot of tea and curl up in a cosy spot to savour the harmonies and read the poetic lyrics in the accompanying booklet. Listening to this CD is like listening to my heart. I would recommend this CD to anyone who values authenticity and beauty. It is simply wonderful!

""...haunting melodies and folk rhythms""

Heather's expressive voice is ideally suited to her haunting melodies and folk rhythms. (The Moon a Bullethole) is sure to establish Heather Chappell as an up and coming folk singer & composer.

""...songs that reach out arms of comfort""

Beautiful songs, songs that take you down the lonesome road, and songs that reach out arms of comfort as well.

Toronto-based singer-songwriter Heather Chappell has been developing her own brand of introspective folk/roots music for almost twenty years.

With her trusty purple accordion (Violet) and guitarist (and husband) Vincent Peets by her side, Heather has played at venues and festivals from Southern Ontario to Northern Ireland.

Her songs are lyrically deep, emotional and intimate, often calling to mind the sweetness of a familiar Celtic ballad or the hush of a sacred Sunday hymn. These songs are offset during live performances by foot-stomping jigs and reels that are known to bring down the house!

Heather's debut solo album, The Moon a Bullethole, was released in November 2007. She is currently working on new songs, and hopes to begin recording in the near future.
