Uncovering. Exposing. Revealing.
For Sarah Smith, the time has come to say more. Show more, and share an even deeper truth with her fans. Courtesy of Sarah’s fifth studio album:
Sarah has always been vulnerable in her songwriting, because she doesn’t know how to do it any other way. Therefore
Unveiling takes that openness to a personal new level. While Sarah sings about love, loss, and having the courage to trust in her own voice.
Recorded at London, Ontario’s EMAC Studios and Second Records in St. Thomas, Ontario.
Unveiling is unmistakably a pop/rock album. The 15 tracks draw on Sarah’s ’90s rock influences. They display her characteristic knack for writing hooks and singalong melodies. From the infectious ‘Beautiful Disaster’ and ‘Divine lntervention’; to the hard driving ‘You Don’t Get My Love’ and the haunting ballad ‘The Hider’. The record is Sarah and her band pushing from a harder foundation. Digging deeper and unleashing intense, pent-up emotions.
Whether it’s just her and her acoustic guitar or her full band, she is simply a mesmerizing performer. Music is Sarah’s full-time passion. She continues to tour prolifically. Along the way, she has shared the stage with many artists. Including Carole Pope, Sass Jordan, Biff Naked, Emma Gryner, Joel Plaskett and David Wilcox.
Besides playing around 300 dates per year in Canada, the United States and Europe, she has also recently begun to play in the Caribbean. She also performed in musical stage productions at Petrolia Playhouse Theatre. Challenges that have broadened her stage presence and songwriting acumen. Her social activism includes playing shows and sharing her story in support of the Canadian Mental Health Association, Addictions Services of Thames Valley, My Sister’s Place, Anova, and Vanier Children’s Services. Sarah has won many awards throughout her career and with
Unveiling now available, Sarah is looking forward to what comes next. Trusting that her music will take her and her listeners where they need to go.
Sam and Robin
Husband and wife duet Sam and Robin are based out of Mount Forest Ontario. Their live performances have been recognized for their sweet, balanced harmonies. They began singing at home with a couple of Beatles songs that eventually led to covers of
50’s/60’s, Country, Folk and Classic Rock songs by celebrated artists. Sam has played in various bands spanning 4 decades. First as a vocalist then moving to bass, 6 and 12 string guitars rounded off with harmonica. Robin has always aspired to sing on stage. Her rich tone compliments the various artist and genres of music Sam and Robin perform. 2018/19 saw this duo perform on South-West Florida and local stages.
Therefore the Basement Cafe proudly presents Sarah Smith & Sam and Robin on March 6th, 2020. We hope that you will join us at her performance, downstairs in the basement of the Public Library in Harriston, ON.
