Today (March 25) marks what would have been the 51st birthday of Canadian blues original Jeff Healey.
“Jeff was one of the sweetest, most humble and talented artists I’ve met…”
Jeff had an electrifying presence of stage, despite playing seated, with his guitar on his lap. I was able to photograph Jeff in concert several times, and each show was memorable, as was his sense of humour.
Jeff Healey received a Star on Canada’s Walk of Fame in 2014.
A year ago, ‘Heal My Soul‘ was realeased – a ‘lost’ album. The first album of unreleased songs in 16 years, was released to coincide with what would have been Jeff’s 50th birthday (March 25, 2016). This album of 12 songs was recorded during a 3 year period of intense creativity that resulted in many more tunes recorded than could be used on the single album. This is also the first album of archival studio material that his Estate has been directly involved in.
