Presented by NOW and THEN Magazine
With countless accolades and reputations as two of the hardest working artists to come out of Saskatchewan, Heidi Munro and Scott Patrick have quickly gained notoriety as “the dynamic duo”. After working in different solo projects and bands over many years in the industry, this partnership has created performances and original songs that are fresh, polished, and real. Heidi and Scott are both multi SCMA awarded artists, these accolades are amongst many others they have individually received on a provincial and national level. Since their partnership, Munro and Patrick are Group/ Duo of the Year nominees with the 2020 | 2021 Saskatchewan Country Music Association, with Scott winning Guitar Player of The Year 2020. “Give Me Your Rain”, is the title track from Munro & Patrick’s first studio album.
Their powerful and emotional vocals combine to take this song to another level, at times tender and intimate and in the next breath gritty and full of soul. The raw and honest lyrics are the backbone of the song and evoke a longing to be woken and live free, honestly and with passion. Munro & Patrick have released a video for “Give Me Your Rain”, as well as 2 live off the floor music videos “Give Up or Give In” and “Safe”. They have released their debut EP “Give Me Your Rain” and are currently planning their “Summer Rain” Tour for this summer.
The original songs Heidi and Scott have written together are heart-wrenching, real, gritty and fresh, rich in the traditional, new and eclectic genres that have influenced their music. Munro & Patrick's songs are filled with great hooks, catchy melodies, profound and honest lyrics and relatable storylines.
Influences in these songs? A little Chris Stapleton, a little Motown, new pop and southern rock, with some Emmylou Harris and the blues.

''Heidi Munro and Scott Patrick are two talented individuals that make up one of country music’s hottest and newest duos,''says Kim Cyr, Editor in Chief for NOW and THEN Magazine and host of the International Music's Journey Podcast.
''Heidi and Scott have an awesome dynamic as a duo. Their powerful vocals, catchy melodies, and hooks are pretty special. Their talent speaks for itself. 'Give Me Your Rain' is the title track for their EP and if this song is any indication of what we have to look forward to in the future from this magic duo, Canadian music just got that much better. I love the honesty and intimate delivery in the lyrics, the gritty soul and blues in this song.''
Heidi and Scott:
''When I went to Scott with the idea and some of the lyrics, it turned out to be a pretty easy write for us. We knew melodically and instrumentally the direction we wanted the song to take, in order to reflect the driving, gritty and passionate message.
This song came from a place of reflecting on the often mundane and uninspired patterns we find ourselves in, whether in relationships, family, or our goals and bucket lists.
In the process of writing the song, it took on a very relationship-directed storyline.
However, as listeners, it seems to reach whatever journeys are being traveled at that time.
