Sarah Osborne is like honey in your ears with her smoky voice and elegant guitar fingers. Her craft of timeless poetry and emotionally ripe music are inspired by the old growth forests and thick salty air of Canada’s wild west coast. Her dramatic and haunting aura will take you on an entrancing journey through a sultry and powerful blend of folk, blues, and jazz.
Osborne hails from a musical family and a background in choir, musical theatre, dance, and piano with the Royal Conservatory of Music. She taught herself guitar after high school and at the same time began writing songs.
Her first solo EP, “s.o”, was recorded and produced by Peter Van Haaften at Oscar Peterson Hall in Montreal and heralded her grand entrance into the musical realm with its release in 2013. Building on the lush songwriting of her first album, Osborne released ‘The Blood Moon Sessions’ EP in 2015. Recorded by Jonny Miller at Freak Mountain Studios on Pender Island, this album deconstructs folk and jazz into stirring, raw songs that entrance the listener.
Sarah has toured far and wide in the Americas, from little intimate spaces to large vibrant halls. Last winter she retreated into the studio in Victoria to record and will be releasing her new EP “She Rows” this Spring 2019. She will take it on the road with her this upcoming summer & fall. Sarah is greatly influenced and inspired by bridging the gap of humans and nature, finding light within the darkness, and quite simply, the weather.
