Kalon Hart CD Release featuring Ben Heffernan
Advance: $10.00 / Doors: $15.00
Kalon Hart’s gentle acoustic songs connect to the spirit, but are rooted in the earth, and forged in the crucible of human experience. Using his songwriting as a personal healing tool, he is a disciple of “emotional judo”, redirecting traumatic memories into parables of light. Kalon Hart is the alter ego of composer, multi-instrumentalist, and four-time JUNO nominee Rob Teehan (Lemon Bucket Orkestra, The Heavyweights Brass Band, The Boxcar Boys), who moved to Los Angeles from Toronto four years ago in search of transformation and growth, and has since been working on major TV shows including “Elementary” and “Jessica Jones”. This show celebrates the release of his debut album, “Love Is Surrender”.
Ben Heffernan is an 18-year-old singer-songwriter from London, Ontario. After winning the Taylor Mitchell Bursary at Folk Music Ontario around the release of his first EP, Different Wars, Heffernan followed it up in 2018 with the release of another 3-song collection, “Home”, his first Ontario tour, and appearances at various Canadian folk festivals including Winnipeg Folk Festival. His cover of Tom Petty’s Angel Dream was included on the Canada Covers Tom Petty compilation, alongside artists such as Terra Lightfoot, Matt Mays, and Royal Wood. Angel Dream received airplay on CBC, Sirius XM, and acclaim from Spill Magazine, who called the cover “incredible”. The future appears to be bright for this young artist, who is determined to continue to build his name and to establish himself as an exciting emerging singer-songwriter.
