Album Notes
Canadian songwriter Heather Meori recorded her first solo EP, Thunder (2017) in Toronto, Canada. After focusing on honing her craft as a versatile songwriter for a variety of challenges, the opportunity arose to record something truly from her own heart. Setting all other styles aside, she set off to create a short EP that truly spoke from her own heart. She knew it should be something gritty yet pretty, so enlisted the multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist Matt Sachs and award winning, edgy producer Jay Helmus (and studio dog Phoebe).

After reading an article in Vice Magazine by Jackie Hong regarding the encryption of first responder's analogue radios, Heather Meori was inspired to capture the fear and loneliness of an imagined scanner enthusiast who finds his only contact with the outside world unexpectedly cut off. "That Radio" captures an electric blend of distorted guitars, synthetic bass, a driving rhythm and descriptive story-telling. This song will be most relevant by the end of 2017, when her home town of Vancouver, Canada expects to complete the full encryption of their transmissions creating their own radio silence.

The title track "Thunder" was inspired by a writing challenge. Heather Meori created a song that brought a story to life, through melodic rises and falls that compliment the lyrics. Almost like a musical version of an onomatopoeia, the listener is brought inside the sounds of what one's heart feels like as it recalls flashes of painful memories, the resulting lingering darkness, then back through the sweet feelings like a sunny break while in the eye of the storm. The accompanying music video (by Simply Gold Productions) was filmed in British Columbia's beautiful Golden Ears Provincial Park.

After watching an interview of an American astronaut, who shall remain nameless, "166 Days" was written. During the interview the astronaut described calmly how he watched this craft burning as they reentered the Earth's atmosphere, struggling to breathe in a hot suit. Audience members questioned him regarding what they ate and other typical questions, but Heather couldn't help but want to ask him how he really felt while burning up and how he managed to be so calm about things that would terrify most people. The song is written from the view point of how she imagines one would truly feel during space travel, but are not allowed to say to the general public for various reasons. She maintains her utmost respect and fascination for the amazing men and women that volunteer for space travel.

Wanting to tap into the tribal primitive beat in all of us, Heather Meori wrote "You're Going To Get Caught". Based on the most primal instincts of mankind, this driving song, inspired by a Pop Will Eat Itself type vibe, is told from the viewpoint of a friend of a serial cheater. Wanting to help her friend, she offers some sound advice while they still have a chance. Originally created as an acoustic song, producer Jay Helmus used his creativity to finalize the electronic sound and bring it to vivid life.
