About Sarah Osborne
Sarah Osborne is a singer-songwriter from the west coast of Canada. Playful and sultry vocals permeate her jazzy blues melodies. Hailing from a musical family and holding a Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology, this songstress and sea queen draws inspiration from the ballads of her childhood and the harshness and beauty of the natural world. Sarah is a natural rambler and has played vastly diverse stages, from train cars crossing the country as part of the ‘Via Rail Artists on Board Program’, to house concerts in the Maritimes, outdoor bars in Central America, and the Capital Ballroom in Victoria, BC. She appears as a one-woman show and often with her rockin’ band “The Magic Buttons”. She thrives on the connection built with her audience through stories and songs. Taking a break from her science career and wanderlust ways, Sarah is currently living on Gabriola Island in a tiny home among the trees. Most days she can be found working on her upcoming four volume “Seasons” recording project , swimming in the sea, and having a laugh with the locals.
Check out Seasons Volume One “The Heat” available on all streaming platforms & Bandcamp.
About the Performance
This session was filmed at Sandwell Provincial Park – one of my favourite places on Gabriola Island. I thoroughly enjoy sharing this beautiful space with others and am grateful to be able to share it with you! I was inspired to play outside as a lot of the songs I write are greatly inspired by nature and the weather. Thanks to Tobi Elliot for the camera work. All of these songs are originals.
Fire Moon & River Keeper come from my latest release “The Heat” and are an ode to summer. We start with a fire burning in the forest and the heart, and then find our way to a cool river, floating leisurely away from any worries. The Wind changes and picks up with poetry that reminds us of the fine line she dances between enemy and friend. Then comes the love song of Electric Company, highlighting the true bond yet healthy independence of the forest and the eagle. Our journey continues along a beach and we come across a great whale bone, a sad tale, and we wonder how she fared? We conclude with a story from a beautiful shell we come across that we hold up to our ear, and eventually which we place back down. This way, her story will be shared with all of the curious beachcombers who pick her up.
