Vicki Heacock

As a child Vicki Heacock spent a lot of time at the family cottage in Haliburton, Ontario. Learning to live off the grid was something her dad insisted on... The sunsets were beautiful over the lake and with it brought campfires, kerosene lanterns and guitar playing Vickis Dad always ended up playing Me and My Teddy Bear [J. Fred Coots] and each family member had to fill in a verse of their own the verses never had to rhyme but sounded much better when they did!! At the age of 12 Vicki started to play guitar. Folk, just like her mom, and country just like her dad then after a friend was in a fatal car accident Vicki wrote her first song Dont Drink and Drive Putting words and melody together became very comforting as each song developed its own personality In 2013, Vickis children, parents and a community of friends in Fenelon Falls helped support and encouraged a trip to Torontos Royal Conservatory of Music to a week long song writing workshop called Song Studio. Vicki questioned her ability to write a song well and was pleasantly surprised when she was presented with the Excellence In Song Writing Award Later on in 2013 Vicki wrote a theme song called Take Back the Night for the Kawartha Sexual Assault Centers Take Back the Night Event This song is dedicated to all survivors where freedom, is answered prayer...
