Celebrating International Women's Day!
Four-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee, Sarah Jane Scouten's music delivers a signature mix of vintage folk and country with modern sounds and subjects.
Sarah Jane is steeped in North American and British folk music from years of finding folk music at its source, from the folklorists of Vancouver Island to all-night jams in West Virginia, Sacred Harp singing in Kentucky, the song craft of Nashville, two-stepping in Louisiana and her Glasgow roots. Touring throughout North America and Europe, this seasoned performer boasts a top-notch live band and considerable acclaim for her last three full length albums.
Her fourth album, Confessions, recorded in Toronto with veteran producer Andre Wahl, is a further exploration of Americana sounds and song forms. It is a collection of revelatory songs - a series of confessions - which valorize, condemn and eulogize the most important relationships of her life to new harrowing heights.
"An agile voice, ruminative songwriting, and love for classic country, indie pop, and everything in between" - American Songwriter
"Sarah Jane Scouten showcases a major talent and a whole lot of versatility" - No Depression
"What makes this collection most remarkable is her ability to share the details of her life in a way that makes us all a little stronger, and hopefully a little more understanding" - Folk Radio UK
"Confessions possesses an almost irresistible draw." - Exclaim!
