Sarah Smith: Gitarre, Gesang
Tourzeitraum: on demand
Sarah Smith is bringing another dream to life. After years of touring in Europe as a solo act, the Canadian pop/rock artist is preparing to bring a full band – and show – to Germany for the first time this November.
It’s an exciting next step for a singer/songwriter who has made a career of taking on challenges and building her audience one person at a time.
“I have always loved playing in Europe,” Sarah says. “But I’ve also always wanted to do it with a band and play my songs the way they were meant to be heard. I’m really excited to bring the full sound and full experience to this part of the world for the first time.”
Sarah is touring on her new CD, 11. Produced by famed engineer Kevin Doyle, the record includes 17 songs that showcase her honest lyrics, memorable hooks, and absolutely unmistakable voice. Like her previous full-length CDs, Stronger Now (2012) and The Journey (2014), 11 weaves through a variety of styles, from rock (Changing My Mind, Runaway Stay) to pop (The Dark, Girl, Undertow) and country (Lay It On The Line, Sunrise). It also brings new sounds into the mix, with different songs featuring horn arrangements, steel drum, and cello.
A seasoned road warrior whose full-time touring schedule dates back to her days in Canadian rock band The Joys, Sarah continues to feel most at home on-stage. She plays nearly 300 shows per year, primarily in Canada, the United States, and Europe. She has also won and been nominated for many awards throughout her career. Her video for Into the Light, directed by Stacy Poulos and shot in California, won both a 2016 Telly Award and a 2016 Akademia Music Award for Best Video in the Pop Rock category. Her music has also appeared in television shows and movies in North America.
While the accolades are appreciated, Sarah says for her it’s still all about the music.
“In the end, 11 is about blessings,” she says. “Sometimes you have to take a step back and appreciate the blessings in your life. Music is one of mine, and I’m so blessed to be able to travel and play for people. I can’t wait to share these new songs with my fans in Europe!”
