Some artists write because there is no other way - because for them the very act of living, searching and tending to their own souls produces music. Renaissance woman Sarah Slean is such an artist. In her distinctive voice, described as a "19th Century Kate Bush" (Bob Mersereau, CBC), we find an entrancing mix of spiritual hunger and old-world whimsicality - in her lyrics, an ever-present longing "reminiscent of Irving Layton and Leonard Cohen" (Time Magazine) - and on "Metaphysics", her first recording in 5 years, production nods to Peter Gabriel, Dan Lanois, Tori Amos, Radiohead and yes, Gustav Mahler. If that's not heady enough for you, "Metaphysics" takes aim at some very grand themes on the level of the personal.
