Heather Rankin and Kim Dunn
Two Great Artists - Two New Recordings
Halifax-based singer-songwriters Heather Rankin and Kim Dunn have teamed up to share the stage for a series of concerts hitting theatres and venues throughout Nova Scotia in celebration of the release of their respective solo recordings.
Heather Rankin Bio:
Heather Rankin is perhaps best known as a member of the multi-award winning group, The Rankin Family. The Rankins made their mark throughout the 90s - touring the world, selling over a million records and bringing the music of Cape Breton and Nova Scotia to an international audience.
Heathers broad career has seen her work with a long list of notable and diverse artists:
Carly Simon, The Chieftains, Johnny Reid, Natalie MacMaster, Donnell Leahy and many others. As a songwriter, Heathers original music has been featured on two Rankin Family albums as well as the Rankin Sisters Christmas album.
For A Fine Line, Heathers first solo recording, she enlisted producer David Tyson (Amanda Marshall, Jude Cole) for the project. Along with Tyson, Heather co-penned seven of the albums eleven tracks. This new release sees Heather forge her own musical legacy with upbeat Rankin-style numbers, soaring ballads, personal and poetic lyrics and bold collaborations including the first single, a cover of the Tears For Fears
hit, Everybody Wants to Rule The World featuring Halifax rap artist Quake Matthews.

Kim Dunn Bio:
North Sydneys Kim Dunn was the recipient of the first ECMA
Musician Special Achievement Award for his work as a singer, songwriter, producer, arranger, musical director and pianist. His first solo record, Take This Hammer, was called a polished gem by The Chronicle Herald. He has performed extensively
throughout North America and abroad and has worked with an A-list of artists including:
Rita MacNeil, Bruce Guthro, Matt Minglewood, Alison Krauss, Jimmy Rankin, David Myles, Jill Barber, Dave Gunning and countless others.
Kims latest recording, Day By Day, picks up where Take This Hammer left off. As with its predecessor, Day By Day offers listeners an indelible collection of heartfelt, rootsy
tunes anchored by a pitch-perfect tenor delivery and incomparable musicianship. This music is made to last and only gets better with each listen.
