Canadian indie-rocker Adrian Chalifour drops new music video OPEN HEART ft. JIMBO, and makes a statement about embracing diversity as a way of understanding ourselves. Victoria drag-queen Jimbo lays down a captivating lead performance while the dancers of RAINO DANCE create a lively atmosphere around this endearing reminder that some of us were born to be vulnerable.

The message is fun, the feel is part Broadway and part rock and roll: Open Heart is a sonic and vibrant reminder that we need to update our belief systems every now and then. The current worldwide groundswell of visionary art that is rising from the smoke and ashes of neoliberalism is both hopeful, and illuminating. Open Heart reminds us that if we are to build a future worth being proud of, it will be because every story had a chance to be told. This powerful riff-driven rock number joins a distinct vocal style with hooky breaks and a hint of high-energy blues.

Adrian Chalifour has been performing heart-driven original music for more than 15 years. He is currently located in Victoria, BC. This song is featured on our CHILL NEW Songwriters playlist.
