Favourite Profile: Sarah Slean

I'm gonna use this time to talk about one of my favourite people. Her name is Sarah Slean. She is everything. She is a pianist, a singer, a songwriter, a painter, a writer, an actress. She's, truly, a renaissance woman. 
She's been in the music industry for over a decade, has released two books of poetry, had her own art opening in Toronto, Canada, and has even acted in an independent film noir musical about the Evelyn Dick murder case. 

I recently had the pleasure of seeing her live and meeting her after the concert. She is a sweetheart and absolutely stunningly beautiful. 

Sarah's most recent album, titled The Baroness, was released on March 11th, 2008. The album features 12 brand-new songs from Sarah, all independently written. 

The lead single from the album, Get Home, is an anthem for anyone who has ever had someone cheat on them. Other stand out tracks on the album include Looking For Someone, a track detailing a longing for love, Sound of Water, a song discussing perspective and how situations can be viewed positively as well. 

The album is a strong release, presenting a melancholy soundtrack for life. Sarah's fourth studio album and seventh release, Sarah has evolved in to a new artist with each album. 

Sarah Slean has stated in previous interviews and discussions that she never releases an album because her record label tells her to. Sarah never wants to release an album unless she feels ready to, unless she has had a big change come in her life. 

Sarah's one of Canada's most talented writers. Give her a listen!
