Artesian on 13th


Sarah Slean

We are so pleased that the exquisitely talented Sarah Slean will be returning to the Artesian stage on Saturday, October 14th. She'll be on tour with her latest album, "Metaphysics", described as "a breathtaking amalgamation of Slean's dramatic orchestral arranging and her signature take on songwriting."

We'll open the Doors & Lounge at 7PM, the Concert will start at 8PM. Tickets are $35 in Advance or $40 at the Door. Sarah's last show at the Artesian (in 2013) sold out well in advance, so don't miss this opportunity to see her live!

Some artists write because there is no other way - because for them the very act of living, searching and tending to their own souls produces music. Renaissance woman Sarah Slean is such an artist. In her 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. If that’s not heady enough for you, “Metaphysics” takes aim at some very grand themes on the level of the personal.

“Metaphysics”, featuring string orchestra and the co-production talents of Hawksley Workman, Daniel Romano, Jean Martin and Joshua Van Tassel is slated for release in the Spring of 2017.
