Sarah Slean

Canadian singer-songwriter Sarah Slean is releasing a new studio album, that as far as I know is yet to be titled, in March. The first single from this album is "Get Home" and she has made it available via her website until the album's release. She asks that you sign up for her mailing list in order to download it, but it isn't necessary (but please visit her website and follow the link to join the list if you are interested, she's worth it).

Sarah combines the styles of her fellow Canadian songstresses named Sarah (McLachlan and Harmer). She has the ambient and beautiful vocals of McLachlan and the strong folk lyrics of Harmer. Many of her songs would suit a smokey piano bar, but she can also crank out a poppy little number as well, like her amazing "Sweet Ones". Her new song "Get Home" is a beautiful ballad that hints at great things for the new album.
