Heather Christie Finds Inspiration In New Life ‘Into This Body’

Heather Christie

You get the sense that musician Heather Christie has always held a powerful passion for anything creative. Based in Topanga, California, Heather describes herself as a creative entrepreneur, singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ. She started singing and dancing at nine years old “and never stopped.”

Heather also holds a certificate in art therapy and teaches via her own holistic music school, Mind-Body Music, “coaching artists, musicians, and healers to unlearn the passive mindset, awaken their innate creativity, and lead thriving lives making art.” That is an inarguably wholesome and rewarding enterprise, a fine example of ‘right livelihood,’ as the Buddhists put it, and is clearly something that Heather does not take lightly.  As she says herself: “art is a major part of the healing that this planet needs, now and at all times.”

Heather’s single, “Into This Body,” comes with a back-story. This is the first official song for my daughter, Naya Rose,” she explains, Inspiration came to the artist just days before going into labour. That labour “lasted 55 hours and I ended up in the hospital, but this song remained a steadfast reminder to me to practice infinite patience, which I realized is a huge lesson of parenthood.”

In keeping with that theme, the track is a gentle, downtempo number, built upon a soft melody, and underpinned by R&B flavoured electronic beats. Soft washes of synth and floating atmospherics do much to buoy this composition. Some lovely, subtle strings add a nice touch.

Fans of smooth R&B/pop with an ambient vibe will surely enjoy this song.
