Singer-songwriter extraordinaire Sarah Hiltz's music is like a once-in-a-lifetime music road trip, a potpourri of genres that you can't quite put your finger on. Think: modern folk + traditional folk + jazz + wickedly delicious spins on classics + hypnotic riffs with a major sprinkle of sultry-ish honest charm.
Sarah's influences include: Miles Davis, Bruce Cockburn, Feist, Erykah Badu, Esperanza Spalding, Billie Holiday and Daniel Lanois. For the last few weeks, we've listened to her music non-stop; you can hear how these musical geniuses have 'informed' her, but her sound is nothing but breathtakingly original.
If you're as addicted to inviting new musicians into your life as we are, we implore you to listen to 'How to Pour Whiskey for Strangers'
'I measure the weight by rhythm:
Hold horizontally for so long.
I make it equal by the sound:
Stop the pour before you hear this note's gone.
Part acoustic lullaby, part lyrical perfection, this song is a modern day love poem. We think Sarah Hiltz is Canada's next guitar-prodigy genius, a la Jodi Mitchell. Come listen to her play at our park, and hear for yourself.
