Thu. October 5th 2017 @ Alix Goolden Performance Hall (All Ages)
Tickets at: Victoria Conservatory Of Music
Renaissance woman Sarah Slean is one of those unique artists, who write because there is no other way – because for them the very act of living, searching and tending to their own souls produces music. In Sarah’s distinctive voice, described as a “19th Century Kate Bush” (Bob Mersereau, CBC), we find an entrancing mix of spiritual hunger and old-world whimsicality – in her lyrics, an ever-present longing “reminiscent of Irving Layton and Leonard Cohen” (Time Magazine) – and on “Metaphysics”, her first recording in 5 years, production nods to Peter Gabriel, Dan Lanois, Tori Amos, Radiohead and yes, Gustav Mahler. Sarah Slean and her band bring an evening of “breathtakingly compelling, evocative and immersively lush” music to the stage of Alix Goolden Performance Hall.
