Album Notes
"Sarah Burton is the very epitome of an emerging recording artist in some ways... but her songwriting and execution are well beyond "emerging." "
-- Andy Frank, CIUT 89.5 FM

“Sarah is explosive in the manner which she delivers her message with a multi-dimensional personality and a heavy foot to keep her grounded. The non-sugar coated blunt and realistic style that made Edie Brickell and Alanis Morisette so successful is what's putting Sarah Burton in the same league.”
-- Fernando Fernandez Vol.01 issue02

"...timeless melodies and dark quirky, sharp-tongued lyrics."
-- Linda McRae, BC Musician Magazine

Sarah Burton packs a deadly musical punch using charisma, charm and a rock and roll attitude. With songs that are at the core, folk, Sarah draws from country, pop and rock to create a sound that is both fresh and familiar.

Lyrically, Sarah blends traditional folk sensitivity with quirky and sometimes sarcastic word play. Honest and intimate, coy and sometimes brash, Sarah writes provocative songs that slide nicely under the skin and into the heart.

Since 2003 Sarah has graced many stages in Canada with her bittersweet irony. She has held two residencies in Toronto, and shared the stage with many talented performers. In 2006 she earned a FACTOR demo award, completed her first cross-Canada tour, and began recording her first CD, Love is for Pussies, with Juno Award-winning producer, John Switzer. 

Love is for Pussies is the story of a self-proclaimed non-expert on Love. Sarah speaks for all sides of the picture – heart breaker, heart-broken, heart-strong and weak in the knees. Sarah’s playful and still ‘dark around the edges’ release openly incorporates the honest emotional landscape of a woman, as well as the raw side of human emotion. Love is for Pussies is a collection of the playful moods stored somewhere in the darkest corners of the heart. 

The disc features Gary Craig on drums, Steve Briggs on guitar, John Switzer on bass, and numerous special guests, including guitarist/vocalist, Graham Powell, pedal steel magic-maker, Burke Carroll and Flamenco guitarist, Jorge Miguel.

2007 saw Sarah through her second cross-Canada tour, the completion of Love is for Pussies, and over 70 shows. She was selected to showcase at such festivals as North By North East, Canadian Music Week, Kingfest and City Roots Festival.

2008 saw Sarah through two more Western Canadian tours, one tour of Florida, and many festival appearances including Winterfolk, North Country Fair, Brandon Folk Festival, We Are Many Festival, ArtsWells Festival, and the Canmore Indie Music Festival.

2009 is here and it's time for Sarah to record. Look out for a
full-length disc this summer.
