Green is much more than a girl-and-guitar combo, playing highly-textural music with dense electro nods. Her 2008 debut EP, One Last Year, preceded her just-released offering Your Last War. The more recent shows Green with a ton of confidence, filling tracks such as “Salvation” with a strong, wandering voice that sounds as though it may have been carried in off a sea breeze. Though originally from California, the now-Haligonian sounds right at home within the artistic community that supports many

Biography

Heather Green is a transplanted emerging artist in Halifax, Nova Scotia, originally from California. Since the release of her first EP One Year Happy in January 2009, she has maintained a local presence wherever she resides.

She started playing local venues in Los Angeles with fellow Los Angeles musician, Kari Newhouse in 2008. It was during this time, Heather was spotted by Engineer/Producer Michael Bizar at Room 5, a popular Los Angeles listening venue, who offered to help begin recording her material.

After a successful CD Release at Hollywood’s Molly Malone’s, she continued playing the local live scene (BB Kings, Ghengis
Cohen, The Hotel Café) and recorded with artists like A.J. Croce (Cage of Muses) until her move to Halifax in August 2009.

“On disc, Green sings about heartache and love in the soft, modulated tones of pop, sounding like a pastel hacienda on the California coast where she grew up”, says Leilani Graham-Laidlaw(Dalhousie Gazette) of Heather’s 2011 performance for the In The Dead of Winter kick-off event. “Green’s music elicited sighs of relief from the audience after a long day. Onstage,
Green projects a much grander sound than her album suggests… grounded, grittier, and more fun.”

Since moving to Halifax, Green has been able to land lucrative gigs and musical pairings, and was also featured in The Coast’s New Music Issue 2010.
In 2010 Heather signed a music publishing deal with Daryl Landry of J. Adair Music, with her songs currently being shopped in Nashville, TN.
Heather has been performing in and around the Maritimes since arriving in Nova Scotia. She has shared the stage with such notable artists as: Rose Cousins, Erin Costelo, The Cliks, Ryan MacGrath, Rae Spoon, Cyndi Cain, Brandi Disterheft, Ria Mae, Natasha Peach, and more.

Beginning May, 2011, Heather will be recording a new album with Dan Ledwell, whose latest production work includes Jenn Grant's latest album, "Honeymoon Punch".

Playgrounds & Minefields (Games People Play)

Written By: Heather Green

I wasn't asking for the stars
I would've settled for much less
You see I shot for the moon
And I landed here instead

Now I know that fate is a fickle friend
And love is a girl that just leaves in the end
And when you gather your courage
And walk away
She turns around and begs you to stay

I'm tired of the games people play
I just wanna love you
And let that be okay

I wasn't asking for a fight
I know I was wrong but can we let go tonight?
Ooh Ooh, so we can hold on
And bask in this love
Until the daylight is gone

I'm tired of the games people play
I just wanna love you
And let that be okay
(x2)

Salvation

Written By: Heather Green

I swear this ocean's a desert
I swear this land is a lake
You sent the devil to heaven
With deals to make

I traded all of my passion
I traded all of my cash
She was a borderline woman
She ain't ever comin' back

So maybe, maybe I am
Maybe all I need
You said
you said I'm crazy
But I say you made me
So c'mon and save me

And now the sun's going down
In a weird shade of green
And a red blood moon
Is rising up behind me

So maybe, maybe I am
Maybe all I need
You said
You said I'm crazy
But I say you made me
So c'mon and save me

Sometimes I miss you like home
A home I'll never get back
You left your daughters alone
And your sons with no dad

I spread wide open my chest
And I let you inside
But all you did was exploit
What I gave with my life

So maybe, maybe I am
Maybe all I need
You said
you said I'm crazy
But I say you made me
So c'mon and save me

So maybe, maybe I am
Maybe all I need
You said
you said I'm crazy
But I say you made me
So c'mon and save me
C'mon and save me
