Sarah combines storytelling with a contemporary folk sound, jazz-influenced songwriting and intricately arranged harmonies.
Sarah Hiltz is expanding the contemporary 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 Via Rail’s passenger train, “The Canadian”. Co-produced by Sarah and Kevin Howley, Beauty in the Blue features lush, nuanced vocals and jazz-influenced songwriting. Sarah’s previous work as a talented singer-songwriter landed her opening slots for Canadian icons Gordon Lightfoot and Ron Hynes, Top 3 placement in a nation-wide music competition (She’s The One), and earned her an invitation to give a TEDx talk in 2014.
