With flavours of Lucinda Williams, Nanci Griffiths and Iris Dement, Sarah Jane Scouten is a three-time Canadian Folk Music Award nominee loved by audiences across the Northern Hemisphere.
A childhood spent singing bluegrass and gospel music with her father on Bowen Island, BC revealed a natural talent for performing and a knack for song writing quickly emerged. Her songs tackle issues from poverty and midwifery to tongue-in-cheek heartache songs and unabashed Canadiana.
Although outspoken and edgy Sarah remains a traditionalist at heart showing her signature flair for the roots of roots music. She’s hit new heights with her third full-length album When the Bloom Falls From the Rose combining deep traditionalism, ruminative songwriting and classic sounds with the modern country music sensibilities of Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson and more.
