Among Whitehorse’s brightest exports, folk singer-songwriter Sarah MacDougall is making her way across our home and native land to promote her gorgeous new album, Grand Canyon, released last month.
The Yukon-by-way-of-BC-by-way-of-Sweden artist moved to the Yukon five years ago, and has since been making a name for herself as one of the territory’s biggest breakout acts.
Grand Canyon, co-produced with Caleb Stull (Field Study), features nine songs, including one in her native Swedish language, and draws from a recent experience working at a residential home for at-risk youth, and the surrounding landscapes of her home.
“Living around mountains and under dark starry skies can really put things in perspective,” MacDougall says in a press release. “You realize what’s worth focusing on in this short life. We’re gonna be gone tomorrow. That is kind of what this album is about. And it’s also about dancing, despite of everything.”
“I Want To See The Light (Lost From Our Eyes)” off Sarah MacDougall’s latest album Grand Canyon.
Catch MacDougall on tour throughout March and into April with Newfoundland folk trio The Once.
