TV actress and UK singer-songwriter Heather Peace uncovers a lyric video for her new single 'We Can Change' which is due for release alongside her second album 'The Thin Line' on June 9th 2014 through Kaleidoscope Records.
The lyrics in the video flash up against a backdrop of blurred our performance clips, but for such an emotional and musically rich anthem, it hardly needs much visual accompaniment to make it interesting. It's a soulful, jazz-infused epic demonstrating Heather's incredibly powerful vocals and its lyrics are filled with personal and unguarded thoughts and feelings.
Heather is probably most recognisable to UK viewers for her television roles. She has starred in 'London's Burning', 'Ultimate Force', 'The Chase', 'Lip Service' and, most recently, school drama 'Waterloo Road'. Her new album has been produced by James Lewis (Arctic Monkeys, Superfood) and follows her 2012 debut release 'Fairytales'. ''We Can Change' is my big gay anthem', Heather has said. 'It's for every kid that has ever messaged me on social media to say they are being bullied and it's a message to anyone that opposes equal rights for LGBT people... I've been playing piano longer than I've been kissing girls.' Heather is set to tout the UK on October, with a few festival dates coming up prior to then including Pride Glasgow 2014 and Brighton Pride.
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
