Canadian rock icon, writer, cancer survivor, humanitarian and everywoman Bif Naked is back with a rousing new single, one whose lyrics tell a universal tale. JIM is the first single to be released from the forthcoming studio album CHAMPION. It is accompanied by a Doug Fury-directed music video that features a blazing performance from Bif. Musically, JIM brings heavy layers of synths and big, rock guitars that couple with Bif Naked’s impassioned, anthemic vocal for a feverish effect.
JIM is a song about loss, really. It’s about that disillusionment we all feel when someone turns into an imposter. JIM is the quintessential story of discovering a betrayal and JIM is that villain. The song is totally about pain, and facing it head-on.

When asked about her famous optimism, Bif shares that she believes in everyone’s ability to move forward, taking care of each other, and getting stronger together. “I believe in the goodness of people. I am grateful for each person I have ever met, from the guru in the street, to the dude in the mosh pit, to the patients I meet in the cancer wards. Everyone is my Teacher.”
Though she is now officially a “Cancer Survivor”, Bif continues to advocate for other patients. She has remained committed to her relentless schedule, including having proudly sat on the City of Vancouver’s Women’s Advisory Committee, volunteering weekly with vulnerable people who ask for her and writing a blog for the Huffington Post. Bif was a contributing writer to The Globe & Mail’s Health columns, and has her poetry read and published frequently.

“I enjoy speaking directly to health care professionals regarding patient advocacy, and to patients and families who are surviving and thriving. They are all my mentors- they inspire me.” Many of her life experiences continue to astonish audiences around the world, as Bif’s storytelling style intoxicates the listener. But also, her lyrics provide the guide map to her life’s journey. An unforgettable woman, performer, and activist, Bif Naked leaves everyone feeling like they have been kissed and hugged, and as though they, too, are wearing her Tango Shoes to dance through life!
