O CANADA with a TWIST or should we say a REFLECTION!!!
First Nations Artist Vallerie launches her forthcoming CD entitled Dangerzone with a pre-release featuring a tribute to her heritage the First Nations Peoples and what better song to celebrate than a heartfelt rendition of O CANADA.
The video features her performance along with images of many First Nations influencers dating back to the eighteen hundreds including a portrait of the incomparable Tecumseh who gave his life for the country (War of 1812). The recording begins with a chant which is a very fitting adaptation of a Mohawk Folk Song, perfect for Canada’s special day. The English translation is:
Oh my darling, how I love you, I saw you across the (room) Land
Won’t you come and dance Rejoice with me!
Her New CD Dangerzone is schedule for release on July 11th. The first Single from the album is a Pop track entitled Dangerzone mixed by 2016 Grammy Award Winner Inaam Haqq (Uptown Funk with Mark Ronson & Bruno Mars – 2016 Record of the Year) A club mix produced by Allan Coelho (Tapps Fame) is also being released. It is a true singer/songwriter recording with 11 of the 13 tracks written by Vallerie and co-writer Jeff McCollough. The CD has a Pop feel with Rock overtones. Lyrically the songs are relationship driven. Track 10 features the keyboard stylings of the late great Eddie Harsh, Canadian keyboardist from the Black Crows who passed away suddenly this year. It is of note that these are some of Eddie’s best performances in recent times. The track is titled “Tearing Down The World” penned by David Bacha.
