In support of Kids Help Phone, Basinview Rocks! presents
a CD release show by multi award-winning musician Keith Mullins
at Basinview Community School in Bedford, Nov. 9

(Halifax, NS) – Celebrating the release of his latest album, The Heart of Everything, Keith Mullins will headline two shows as part of Basinview Rocks!, in support of the Kids Help Phone, at Basinview Community School in Bedford on Wednesday, November 9. Showtimes are 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Back by popular demand, teacher Carol Coutts and Basinview Community School are collaborating with multi award-winning Nova Scotia musician Keith Mullins to raise funds for the Kids Help Phone: kidshelpphone.ca

This time, Basinview Rocks! will celebrate the release of Mullins’ newest folk-pop recording, The Heart of Everything, currently nominated for two 2016 Music Nova Scotia Awards, including Solo Recording of the Year and Folk Recording of the Year. Mullins is also up for Musician of the Year and Educator of the Year.

Joining Mullins for the show are musicians, Colin Grant, Angelo Spinazzola and Rheo Rochon. The over 600 students from Basinview Community School will also back Mullins up for various songs.

“The Kids Help Phone is a great tool for kids. We are trying to let students know that they always have someone to talk to if they need to and this concert will donate some much-needed funds to the cause”, said Mullins. “Last time, we did this, we sold out two shows and raised $8,000.00 for IWK mental health. Let’s see if we can beat that!”

To promote the shows, Mullins has released a video for his song “Fireflies”, produced by Clothesline Media. To view the brand new video, visit: Fireflies

Viral Video

I play at the Inverary Inn Resort in Baddeck, NS usually 5 shows but as many as 10 shows per week from May-Oct 31st. It is always a fun time but last night was exceptional. I was approached by an older couple from Texas who just came to dance. They ordered water and he said he had been dancing since he was 14, growing up in a trailer court where two girls next door needed a dance partner and he had been dancing ever since. I think their names are Burt and Carolyn. They just loved dancing and I had been working on the song Uptown Funk as a one man band style- vocals/guitar/bass drum/tamborine/harmonica all at the same time. I just thought to myself, wouldn’t this make a great video and asked a waitress to record the video on my iphone. Here you go, I hope that these two make your day like they made my night.


Just Another Day

I met Randy Jones, an editor on strike at the Chronicle Herald who had a long time dream of co-writing and recording a song. His latest writing was about the strike. I knew that the Chronicle Herald had been experiencing some really tough times and had been having trouble reaching a deal for far too long. This song is dedicated to the unwavering support from Chronicle Herald workers to keep this legacy newspaper.

The song is available as a FREE download:

Here is the video that we shot:

This song was inspired by the loss of Keith’s laptop/backup hard drive that included over 100 songs and was returned to him in Fredericton, NB. Inspired by that event then changed/compared to be about a relationship. ENJOY!

Fundraiser for IWK raising over 8k with Basinview Community School

Keith has been working on a few projects with Basinview Community School involving many East Coast artists.  Under the direction of Carol Coutts and Keith Mullins, the 600 students spend the year learning the different artists songs and then back the artists in a show to raise funds for organizations in need.  Jimmie Inch and Ian McInnis from Bell Aliant came and filmed the show.  There were around 1200 people in attendance and over $8000 was raised for IWK mental health. Here is Keith Mullins backed by Basinview Community School. This song is called “Purpose”.
