The Honest Heart Collective
The Honest Heart Collective
Two brothers. A flicker of fire. An insatiable need to write together and an affinity for Irish whiskey. T​he Honest Heart Collective​ was born out of a no holds­ barred approach to putting the music first and a rotating cast of musicians made permanent.

Decked out in denim and ripped jeans, the Thunder Bay, Ontario natives are described as "passionate, spirited, feel­-good, anthemic rock music" by G​rant Lawrence ​of
C​BC Radio 3.​ The songs that make up L​iar's Club, ​the band's debut full­-length album, are an exemplary showcase of T​he Honest Heart Collective's ​old-soul take on storytelling through music. The album was mixed and mastered by G​reg Dunn​ (Gates, Prawn) of Moving Mountains.​ "It's raw, it's real, and even liberating. Much can be learned from the simplicity of the record, but also that great songs still take great musicians to write."

Ryan MacDonald explained that the premise behind the record stemmed from a time when it was "easier to lie than tell the truth and deal with it". Those struggles became words, and those words became songs. A passing moment on a city bus gave a man the perspective to take life day by day, minute by minute to a better place.

"They're a group that performs with the intensity and passion of a band trying to save the very soul of rock 'n roll itself," blogger Morgan Harris explains.

With L​iar's Club,​ T​he Honest Heart Collective ​tell it like it is; sometimes a flicker of fire comes ablaze.
