This is the second track from Red Heaven’s “Echolocation” is released. It’s my deepest foray into heavy metal and prog-rock yet and I’m not going to lie: I’m very proud of this one. It features guest appearances by wonderful musicians Olga Zee and Marie-Claire Saindon. Mixed and mastered by Andrew Tokuda.

1,000 Red Dresses

I love this country and I love being Canadian. And today I want the fireworks to fly, the music to blare, and the barbecues to fire up. Celebrate, celebrate, celebrate! We’re one of the most respected countries in the world and, according to some polls, the most respected.
 
We’re also a diverse family with unresolved problems and a lot of hard work to do. The Indigenous people of Canada were displaced and subjugated through violence and deceit, and that is how Canada transformed from their homeland into their prison and crucible. To celebrate Canada demands a recognition of the many miles left in our journey to create a united and peaceful nation… and the enormity of suffering that takes place until we make that journey.
 
In Canada, suicide rates among Native youth between 15 and 24 is six times higher than that of non-Native youth.
 
Canada’s last residential school closed in 1996… just one year before my daughter was born.
 
Native women are five times as likely to be murdered or go missing than non-Native women.
 
I’m sharing a song I wrote called “1,000 Red Dresses” today because I believe the only way to mark this historic Canada Day is to be grateful for the good and to open our eyes to the remaining, persistent challenges of helping this country reach its potential greatness.

This Means It’s Coming Soon

Announcing: The Little Temple

Red Heaven is delighted to announce our second EP, The Little Temple: A collection of three original songs written for the occasion of the Baha’i Holy Festival of Riḍván, 2017. Incorporating excerpts from sacred Baha’i text, The Little Temple features meditative, ambient music with a worldly flavor that will lull listeners both to reflect and maybe even inspire them to dance.

Malagasy singer Bruno Randimbiarinson joins Red Heaven on The Little Temple, as does violinist Marie-Claire Saindon, bassist Tom McMahon, and percussionist Aaron Ferrera. These songs will be available for free or “pay what you want” download, and we are opening the license to encourage those who enjoy it to copy and share it with their friends and/or incorporate it into their media presentations, group meetings, or private reflection.

Our other in-progress album, Echolocation, is still pressing forward in production without delay or interruption. The Little Temple is simply a little something extra as a gift from Red Heaven to you.

Keep an eye on Redheaven.ca for news on The Little Temple, Echolocation, and a bunch of other stuff, too.

Happy Riḍván!

Before you know it…

….Echolocation will be here: The new album collaboration between Red Heaven and Digital Droo. Scheduled for early 2017.
