2016 marks the release of Heal My Soul - the extraordinary lost album from Jeff Healey which has never been heard before by the public. March 25th of this year would have seen Jeff turn 50 years old and this album begins the celebration of a milestone year for a true musical icon.
Heal My Soul is the first album of new songs recorded by Jeff in over 15 years. It represents some of the most powerful and impassioned performances he ever committed to record. Under the direct supervision of the Jeff Healey Estate these tracks were painstakingly restored and brought to life bringing into focus Jeff's unique and special gifts as an artist.
There are 12 astounding tracks here including the searing "Daze of the Night" and the sweet, harmony filled "Baby Blue". This is truly Jeff Healey as you've never heard him before: "Remarkable, musical treasures that Jeff left behind will be made available for us to experience for years to come. The unearthing of this lost album is a project that will highlight Jeff's incredible talent. With this gift of never before released amazing music, we invite Jeff's fans to join us in celebration of his 50th birthday," says Cristie Healey, Executor/Co-Administrator of the Jeff Healey Estate.
Healey is remembered as one of the most outstanding guitarists and performers of the past 30 years. He lost his sight during early childhood due to retinoblastoma, a rare form of eye cancer. Playing guitar since the age of three, he developed the distinctive lap-style guitar technique that helped bring him international attention by his late teens. A Grammy nominee and JUNO Award winner, his five releases with The Jeff Healey Band totaled millions of sales worldwide. Over the course of his career, he also shared stages and earned the admiration of countless other musicians including B.B. King, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Stevie Ray Vaughan, and the Allman Brothers Band. Healey died on March 2, 2008 at age 41 after a three-year battle with sarcoma cancer.
