Sarah Slean in Maclean's (Article)

In the September 12th issue of Maclean's Magazine they have a 3 page feature article on Sarah.Slean by Elio Iannacci.  The cover story is for the late Mr. Jack Layton who's death Sarah had tweeted about.

The article on Sarah touches upon the influences for how the 'Land' side of the albums was inspired by the scores of musicals like The Sounds of Music and Wizard of Oz.

They go into personal struggles that have surfaced as those mentioned in the song Shadowland and with finding her own identity.  In years past she found comparrrisons to Sarah Harmer, Sarah McLachlan and Tori Amos where hard to take as she was discovering herself as an individual.

Talking about her relationship with Royal Wood it is pointed out he did produced one of the songs on the Land album, Everybody's on TV.  This will not be the first time Royal has produced work for Sarah as he was a producer for the Beauty Lives EP.

You can read the full article for yourself online and view more stunning photographs by the photographer Jaime Hogge here.

Next media appearance we know of for Sarah is appearing this Saturday on CBC's Big City, Small World.
