Happy Now

A unique balance of edgy songs incarnate with rock, reggae, new wave, pop, punk, it’s a monster. Girly, defiant, tongue in cheek, the album articulates life. It's a monster because giant hits lurk within.

Album Notes


11 new originals from Heidi Vincent, a new indie project in the alternative pop vein. Happy Now is the anticipated debut release. It's the result of my life experiences, my love of writing and singing. It’s the result of 8 months of rehearsing and recording. It’s a result of the incredible and talented musicians in Vancouver that have indulged my vision and have become good friends in the process. We all came from different backgrounds, new wave, reggae, pop, punk even metal and this is what helped give the songs a flush feel and a positive result.

There was only one way to record this album and that was to just do it. No talking, no second guessing and no re-visiting old material. The goal was to grow, experiment and put it down on tape, well ok, the drums were on tape and the rest was digital. We had already completed the pre-production with a month of jamming out the tunes at the Rockspace and by the time we got to the studio it all fell into place.

Drums and Bass were recorded at John McLean’s studio The Factory (Marilyn Manson, Motley Crew, Billy Talent, Bon Jovi) in Vancouver, BC on the Neve 8048 62. I wanted to capture the warmth of tape for this part of the album, and we stayed as long as I could afford it. A lot of positive energy was generated in those sessions, when it came time to lay down the guitars we were more than excited. Lab Monkey Studio’s in Vancouver, just off Commercial Drive is owned and operated by the definitively venerable, Shawn Cole. And, although the studio is a beat up, slightly musty and hard to find, it was a significantly positive and a creative womb to us.

This is where the album was fleshed out, through the fall and over the dark winter months we moved along in a natural progression. Guitars, overdubs, keys, vocals, harmonies, all the extras, tweaking everything along the way and even adding crazy things like horn section in few songs. You just find what it needs as you go along. Finishing co-incidentally as the spring arrived, a brand new year and brand new opportunities.

I had recorded an album before, had my songs played on radio internationally. I’d showcased on television. I’d played live and supported bands such as Morning Maker, The Winks, Bocephus King, Craig Jacks, Simone Pope, Deluxe and had headlined shows at some of the best Vancouver venues. I’d done quite a bit for someone active for a mere 6 years. But, never with a full album that I was excited about or had even been able to get printed. That time is here with Happy Now.

I love music. I love expressing myself through music. These songs are more sophisticated, they are the dirty-pretty sound that I have searched for, the ones rattling around in my empty head for a couple of years. Girly, defiant, murderous, tongue in cheek, the album articulates every emotion of my love and life.

Great Album from a Very Talented New Artists
WOW! Just when I thought great music was lost. The debut album from Vincent comes as a remarkable surprise in a time of over-comercialized and lackluster artists. Sure, it has some influences - Garbage, No Doubt, for starters. But it somehow manages to sound fresh and unique. Definitely recommended. It's amazing that a major label hasn't picked up Vincent yet. To borrow a line from the album, "am I the only one" who thinks vincent is superstar material?
