“A rare vintage blend of Norah Jones and Debbie Harry, this full-bodied, soulful singer-songwriter mingles roots, blues and jazz, devotional music and chants into a heady spiritual infusion.”
Sarah Calvert is a modern day Renaissance Woman who adorns many hats as an award-winning performing singer-songwriter, producer, assistant musical theatre director (for the Mirvish smash, My Mother’s Lesbian Jewish Wiccan Wedding), former high school English teacher, freelance journalist, Extreme Freestyle Skiing competitor, ski, sailing and Kundalini Yoga instructor, mantra musician and all around swell gal.
She is back in Toronto this fall, after a summer of touring Eastern Canada; she drove from Toronto to Newfoundland on the back of a motorbike and borrowed instruments from her Eastern music pals along the way. She also guided a yoga retreat in Gros Morne Park and had the opportunity to connect to "The Rock" on a deep level.
She's currently working on mixing and mastering her newest live album tentatively entitled "Masala Melodies" which she recorded in May at Musideum in Toronto. Accompanying the CD is a small book filled with memoir, revelations and roots of how the songs came to be.
This spring, she'll head to L.A. to work on a new mantra album, complete with uplifting beats and danceable grooves; a turn in direction from her last mantra project which was more mellow and meditative. Once again, she'll collaborate with master percussionist Evan Ritchie of the Toronto Tabla ensemble, as well as the talented Ram Vakkalanka, the amazing sitar player who performs and teaches worldwide.
