Hailing from the well-known Canadian musical hotbed of Pickering, Ontario (?), Sarah Slean is another of our country's great female singer/songwriter/piano players. Though she is not the best known Sarah from this country (Harmer and McLachlan might beat her out) she certainly is one of the most talented. A musician, composer, arranger, poet, painter, and actress the lady can do everything. And well.
Plenty of vocal talent and panache at the piano this lady is drama personified on stage. She inhabits the characters of her songs while singing making for a visual presentation that matches the sound feast she provides you. Although still quite young (31), Slean has already released seven albums, so she has plenty of material to pull from on tour.
This tour is called the Recessionista Tour and she is crossing Canada alone (without a band) with her piano in her efforts to reduce her carbon imprint. She is also in every city she plays wearing a dress designed especially for her that is made out of secondhand clothes. The dress will later be auctioned off on ebay to benefit the David Suzuki Foundation. Cool concept! Cool lady!
