Sarah Burton's playful soul has found its home in music through three diverse albums, and countless ups and downs while traversing the globe. She's seen her way through acoustic folk beginnings, into country swing and steel guitars, then electrifying blues-rock. On her new album Make Your Own Bed, Sarah doesn't just embrace indie-pop into her musical inventory, but returns to her first inspiration; the piano.
The anticipated fourth release [Make Your Own Bed], is quintessentially Sarah Burton; full of clever lyrics and slices of life described in unique detail. It was a thought at the back of the songwriter's mind for years, as Sarah Burton got her start in music through piano lessons as a child, before switching to the role of axe-slinger and singer when performing. Recently though, Sarah found herself in front of a beautiful Steinway in Almonte, ON, with engineer/producer Ken Friesen (Tragically Hip, Hawksley Workman, Blue Rodeo), and producer Derek Downham (The Beauties, Samantha Martin), awakening the memories and stirring up the inspiration to create what has turned out to be the most beautiful and polished release yet from the popular Toronto-based songwriter.
