Luckhart's upcoming album
"MAKE IT THROUGH"
will be released
late in 2022
on ZSAN Records
Singer-songwriter Heather Luckhart's upcoming album "Make It Through" is a strong musical debut from a rising female Canadian Blues Artist.
Fresh off her recent showcase at the Toronto Blues Summit, this is Luckhart's third single as she ramps up to release her full-length debut album, "Make It Through," later this year. The only cover on the record, "Hard Times Come Again No More," is one of the oldest American standards. This non-denominational gospel-folk song prays for a peaceful future after the storm and is the perfect post-pandemic anthem and a lovely song choice for this bluesy, tender blue-eyed soul artist. It features the fiery Juno nominated Alison Young with a tasty saxophone solo.
"I love this timeless traditional ballad. It perfectly captures the essence of hope we all need to persevere." Heather Luckhart

Luckhart's connection to the blues is one she has earned and she brings her life experiences and endurance into every musical moment. "Make It Through", to be released in late 2022, is a blues album with gospel, rock and jazz influences. A collection of ten original tracks and two arrangements of classic standards are all centred around perseverance and strength. Heather's music is vulnerable, but strong, a message of support to others and a call to action to herself. It's Luckhart's fiery spirit that has helped her Make It Through life's challenges and she is proud to share that spirit in this album, recorded despite many obstacles during the pandemic.
Luckhart has a passion for community that is evident through her award-winning social media influencer status on Instagram [2021 People's Choice award winner, NOW Magazine's Best Account], her contributions to Canada Rocks Media and SEEROCKLIVE Magazine, and her monthly blues jam hosted at Mandy's Bistro in Toronto. Up until now, she has achieved many musical collaborations, and feature-focused performances, and worked in mentorship programs with at-risk youth. Welcome Luckhart to the centre stage as a solo recording artist rooted in the blues traditions.
