Honey-soaked folk with a hint of indi and a splash of bluegrass, Heartwood radiates exuberant joy with every irresistible song. From the hearth of their rural Pacific northwest homestead Jack Connolly and Genevieve Charbonneau serve up the pulse and passion of rollicking recession laments, driving celtic love songs and witty (and ironic) debates on the ways they don’t go together. Their quirky naturalness, endearing humor and raw talent stir affection and warm the blood while their powerful roots draw up a nutrient rich brew of sound bringing warmth and energy to all who gather around the table to listen.
When Jack and Genevieve met in 2018, Jack was a rising country star playing stages with Tom Cochrane and Colin James, and Genevieve was a homesteading mama who had recently won the BC Songwriting Competition, but as soon as they sang together they knew they were greater than the sum of their parts. Jack offered to produce Genevieve’s “Heart is a Tower” album, which reached #15 in the NA Folk Charts. Inspired by that project, they cooked up the Heartwood duo, finding immense joy in singing harmonies and playing on each other’s songs.
