Alt-Folk Artist Jackie K Pays Tribute to the Healing Power of the Outdoors in New Single, “Green Heals Me”

Fri May 27, 2022

One upside of the pandemic is that many of us rediscovered the healing power of Vitamin D-infused sunshine and the glory of the outdoors. In that spirit, Canadian alt-folk songstress Jackie K pays reverent tribute to the panacea of lush greenery in her ‘70s-inspired new single “Green Heals Me” – Check it out on YouTube here:

With the soothing meander of a lazy day on the veranda or a leisurely hike through the woods, “Green Heals Me” features folky guitar, jazzy piano, and Jackie K’s signature plain-spoken, candor-filled voice, like that of a trusted friend. ‘I spent today living outside in the sunshine/ To shake the lack of sleep, and way too much drink,’ she begins. And then she describes with rich imagery the perfume of the lilac-tinged air, the shade-giving pine trees, the canopy of the woods, and then the cool night air at the end of an outside-filled day.

Sometimes the longing for Spring, whether literal or metaphorical, is so palpable as to be an ache.

Fresh from her recently released EP, Look for the Little Things, the song arrives as simultaneously hopeful, wistful, and full of melancholy cheer as Jackie K sings about nostalgia for something she doesn’t yet have.
