New Year Update…Local Roots Live Series, The HeartCore and more!

We know what you’re thinking…things have been quiet in LH land, especially when you consider how busy we were in November!  But have no fears, we have not forsaken all of our fans; we have been busy doing some behind the scenes work.  We’ve been polishing some of our older songs, sprucing up the arrangements and/or adding new instruments, writing a few more new songs and getting those ready to perform, project planning, business meetings and more.

Our show schedule in the coming months is intentionally more sparse, as we soak in the dark, thoughtful, and creative time of the year.  We have a couple of big projects that we are starting, (now, now, we aren’t going to spill the beans just yet) so that will take some of our energy.  But primarily, our plans are to spend plenty of time writing and perfecting new material, so we can emerge, come springtime, with a sparkly new set of songs for you all, dear ones!

We are excited and can’t wait for you all to see what we have in store.  We are so grateful for all of your love and support in 2016.  Many of you contributed to our fundraiser, bought our EP, listened to our music on spotify, and have come to multiple shows.  We are in awe of you, and could not have come so far without you all by our side!  So, we decided to come up with a name for our lovely community; The HeartCore!  And you are all members!  Thank you, thank you for staying with us!

The last little bit of news is quite possibly the most exciting of all!  Luminous Heart has been invited to play the Local Roots Live Series at the Alberta St. Pub in Portland!  Each month, the “series showcase(s) some of the regions best musicians performing their music live and being recorded for later broadcast on the ‘Local Roots’ radio show”. ( on!  So if you can’t make the show, you’ll be able to hear the live recording on the radio (we’ll keep you posted on when).  But if you’re free this Wednesday evening, come see us, as well as a few other great bands.

Well, that about does it for this update.  We hope you all had a great holiday season and look forward to seeing you soon!

Much Love,

Val and Jamie
