Kim Harris wraps up a short tour through Quebec and Ontario with a performance this week at the Second Wind Music Centre in Florenceville-Britsol.
Born in Newfoundland and now based in Halifax, Kim Harris’ musical trajectory began in the world of opera before shifting to alternative pop sounds that defined her 2014 debut recording, Only The Mighty, a recording that earned her a 2015 East Coast Music Award for Rising Star Recording of the Year.
Inspired by the likes of Amelia Curran and Jenn Grant, Harris has established herself as a powerful voice among east coast singer/songwriters. Currently on tour with fellow Halifax musician Leanne Hoffman, Harris recently shared the track Heirloom, her first new music in five years.
“The song is an acceptance of the idea that after massive upheavals, some of us have no choice but find a way to continue to live in the destruction, mining ourselves for energy we have carried over lifetimes to keep us alive and moving forward,” said Harris. “Fireweed flourishes in this destruction. Its growth requires a state of recovery. There is no better flower for me to wear on my corsage rolling up to life.”
Along with the release of Heirloom, Harris has announced her next album will arrive in early 2020.
