Heather Green’s “Your Last War”: An Exceptional Album To Play Over and Over and Over Again

Heather Green’s second album, Your Last War, is nominated for 2 East Coast Music Awards:  “Pop Recording of the Year” and “Rising Star Recording of the Year”.

Since its release on May 16, 2012, the album has received many glowing comments:

The latest to my ears is Heather Green.  She’s just released the disc Your Last War, a great addition to the pop-songwriter scene out of Halifax.  Great tunes, cool lyrics, nifty production.” – Bob Mersereau (CBC)

“…the sound and vibe of the production and songwriting of this creation, are truly exciting and worthy of extreme celebration.”  – Jenn Grant (musician)

Green’s voice bends around endless textures and tempos to tell stories of love and regret.” – Hero Hill

“Her new album, recorded with the amazing Daniel Ledwell, “Your Last War” is Heather at her best. It is a true album and both a sonic and heartbreaking journey. Songs like “Playgrounds and Minefields”, “Sweet Little Something” and “Close Call” are as good as anything out there by anyone. If this new album was marketed properly, there is no reason why it wouldn’t be a huge seller along side with Norah Jones, Sarah McLachlan and Patricia Ahn. “  – Michael Bizar (Multi-Instrumentalist, Composer for TV/Film, Los Angeles)

 

Heather does a great job singing on this great CD, and Atlantic Seabreeze gives the album top ratings on its rating list.” – Atlantic Seabreeze

“There aren’t many albums as perfect as @_heathergreen’s Your Last War.” – tweet from Jen Ochej (Jen from Twitter)

“…Heather Green’s Your Last War is a reverb- soaked pop-rocker that sounds like it was pulled from a nook between Radiohead’s The Bends and OK Computer.” – The Coast (Halifax)

“Heather’s strong songwriting, vocal performances, and willingness to take bold directions musically will set her apart from her peers. These songs deserve global recognition.”  – Daniel Ledwell (musician/producer)

I agree with all of the comments above.  So, what can I add that hasn’t already been said?  Not much really.

Your Last War is an exceptional album.  Like Jenn Grant’s A Beautiful Wild and Rose Cousins We Have  Made A Spark; Your Last War is an album that I find myself wanting to play over and over and over again.  Since recently getting a copy, I have been listening to it on the bus, in the office, in the car, and at home.  It is the kind of album that you can listen to alone or with your family.

Heather Green had a pledge music campaign for Your Last War a year ago.  Although the campaign is over and the album released, this video gives you a preview of the great songs on the album.

Heather will be playing a few shows during East Coast Music Week, including: the free ECMW Kick Off Concert in Grand Parade, with Jenn Grant, The Stanfields and Ashley MacIsaac on Thursday, March 7th from 6-9 pm.  Check out the East Coast Music Association website for the full schedule.

Heather is also playing a free show this Saturday (February 23rd), from 7:00 – 9:00 at the Halifax Oval with Carmen Townsend, Willie Stratton and Minus World.  Grab your skates and come on out.
