Sarah Hiltz 2017 Release

December 10, 2017


Artist: Sarah Hiltz
Release: Beauty In The Blue
Date: Nov. 7th 2017.
Genre: Modern Folk, Singer-Song Writer

Tracks:
01. I Took A Risk
02. Inside My Mind
03. Without You
04. No Proof
05. What We Leave Behind
06. Best I Can Believe
07. Fight Your Dark
08. Traveller’s Grace
09. How To Pour Whiskey For Strangers
10. Beauty In The Blue

Notes: Sarah Hiltz is an emerging singer/songwriter expanding the alternative Canadian folk tradition with her latest album, Beauty in the Blue, a compilation of songs and stories culled from her multiple journeys across Canada as a travelling musician on cross-country Via Rail passenger train, “The Canadian”. Inspired by the vastness and diversity both of Canada’s northern landscape and its inhabitants, Sarah fell in love with the quiet strangeness of train travel, the ever-changing vistas out the carriage windows, and the frank, open way strangers share their stories in those carriages; in hearing stories of pain, suffering, and beauty, Sarah found herself inspired to document not only the stories shared with her through song, but her own struggles in how to engage with those stories beyond her own art. Beauty in the Blue, co-produced by Sarah and Kevin Howley (Running Red Lights), sounds like the soundtrack to a country-wide journey– lush, nuanced vocals and jazz-influenced songwriting is complimented by a highly sensitive rhythm section and stand-out guitar work provided by Sarah’s long-term collaborators, drummer Jordan Michaelis and multi-instrumentalist David Puzak. The conversational lyrics are an attempt to connect strangers who share their stories, and in so doing create a bridge across the eclectic gap in our Canadian experiences, expressing what many suffering pain, loss, and confusion have found before- that through the storms that flash blue across our skies, there is beauty to be found if we are vulnerable with one another, if we listen, if we share our stories.
