Sarah MacDougall is a rising star on the Canadian Folk Music scene with her dynamite songs, blistering guitar chops and astounding voice. Earning rave reviews for her official debut Across the Atlantic (2009), her reputation was bolstered with the release in 2011 year of her latest album The Greatest Ones Alive.
Born in Sweden, 24 Hrs Vancouver called her ‘one of the most promising exports out of Sweden since Abba’, while Swedish magazine Nöjesguiden recently declared Sarah “One of Sweden’s best singer/songwriters”.
She has recorded a session for Bob Harris’ BBC Radio 2 show, played several Canadian and International Festivals, and performed with such notable artists as Mary Gauthier, Todd Snider, Kimmie Rhodes and Po’ Girl.
Featuring ten melodic, beautifully written, epic, and touching songs that showcase the growth in Sarah’s songwriting and performance skills, The Greatest Ones Alive covers themes such as storms (literal and metaphoric), success, growing up, love, friendship, and dying and features the musical skills of Tim Tweedale, Shawn Killaly, Patrick Metzger, and Matt Rogers, with guest appearances by Bob Hamilton, Meredith Bates, Annie Avery, Awna Teixeira, Kim Beggs, Kim Barlow and Gordie Tentrees.
The Greatest Ones Alive proves Across the Atlantic was no fluke and as one of the hardest working Canadian artists today, Sarah MacDougall won’t be stopping anytime soon.
