Peru provides the inspiration for Hutchison’s third CD

Blind since birth, Comox Valley singer songwriter has unique perspective on life

Heather Hutchison

Singer/songwriter and Comox Valley resident Heather Hutchison will be performing on Saturday, Jan. 24 at The Little Red Church in Comox to celebrate the release of Where the Ocean Meets the Sand, a five-song EP that chronicles the time Hutchison spent living in Peru.

The fabulous group of musicians from across Canada who played on the recording will be returning for this special evening of songs and stories.

Former Comox resident and Canadian Folk Music Award winner Trent Freeman will open the show.

Tickets can be purchased online at at a reduced cost, or at the door the night of the concert.

Where the Ocean Meets the Sand, Hutchison’s third release, tells tales of being lost and finding one’s self in small ways.

Blind since birth, Hutchison tells of her life in Peru and the struggles she faced upon her return to Canada from a unique perspective. Recorded on Vancouver Island by Jayme Langen (WiL, Georgia Murray), some of Canada’s finest musicians bring these songs to life with an exquisite blend of intricacy and intimacy.

Hutchison has accomplished a great deal since releasing her first EP of original material, Hello, (2005), at only 16 years of age. She has gained experience performing in all manner of venues such as concert halls, theatres, clubs and outdoor stages from North to South America, with many performances broadcast on television and radio.

Hutchison’s work continues to garner positive reviews from industry critics, and she has performed and recorded with a number of Canadian music veterans.

She also holds a diploma in jazz and contemporary music performance.
