Change of Heart formed in 1982 in Toronto, Ontario, and achieved domestic success in the mid-1990s during the grunge/alternative rock heyday of that decade. Videos for the singles "Little Kingdoms" and "Grifter's Plow", from their 1997 album Steelteeth, received substantial airplay on MuchMusic's alternative showcase program The Wedge.
Over the course of the group's lifespan there were numerous personnel changes, with vocalist Ian Blurton being the one mainstay. Other members included drummers Ron Duffy, Glenn Milchem and John Richardson, bassists Rob Taylor, John Borra and Rob Higgins, percussionist Mike Armstrong and keyboardist Bernard Maiezza.
The band had a diverse, genre-defying sound similar to that of King Cobb Steelie, but wrote and played somewhat more conventionally-structured power pop songs than King Cobb Steelie did. The songs on their albums crossed from pop to hard rock to something almost akin to punk.
Change of Heart broke up in 1997 after their tour to support Steelteeth. Blurton, the band's singer and main songwriter, went on to form the bands Blurtonia and C'mon, as well as becoming a record producer.
