On the title track of her first solo record A Fine Line, Heather Rankin sings about the ever-shrinking barrier between our public and personal lives, the need to maintain a brave face when so much of what you go through is exposed,
With the release of her debut solo album A Fine Line,Heather Rankin is embarking on her own musical journey. Well known for being the youngest member of the multi-platinum selling musical group The Rankin Family, her musical past has allowed her to branch out into a different sound and it is clearly one she can call her own. Co-writing seven of the eleven songs with David Tyson, the songs embrace a poetic balance between struggle and joy, making it easy to understand the obvious success of their collaboration. We caught up with this Nova Scotia native to tell us more about her debut album and her experience towards creating her own musical legacy.
Heather did this great interview for Live From Railtown with Terry David Mulligan on Roundhouse Radio back in March. She talks about her roots singing with her siblings, about her extraordinary mother, Kathleen, and about how the songs on her solo album, A Fine Line, including “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” (f. Quake Matthews), “We Walk As One” (f. Jimmy and Cookie Rankin), “Sitting in a Cafe” and “Titanically” came to be. You can listen to it here! http://bit.ly/1X9huJq
