Originally from Seattle, Heart got their start in Vancouver with Mushroom Records. In time, they gained fame in the States and all over the world.
Born in San Rafael, California, Sharon (Shari) Ulrich became a staple of the Canadian music scene while with the Hometown Band, touring mostly in BC. She then went solo and became an musical icon in her own right.
Bruce D Miller (to avoid confusion with other Bruce Millers) is also from San Rafael, I believe. His move to Canada, started in the Toronto folk club scene. He moved to BC later. (My claim to fame is cashing one of his A&M Records cheques at the Broadway & Burrard branch of the Bank of Nova Scotia in Vancouver in 1976.) He is best known in BC for writing the Valdy hit, “Hometown Band”
They may have come from somewhere else, but they were very popular in British Columbia when I lived there in the late 70’s and early 80’s.
I hope you have enjoyed the show…
