"Are You Gone?"—the first new album in a decade from Canada's Sarah Harmer—is a deeply personal and momentous collection of songs motivated by the beauty of life, the urgency of climate crisis, and the question of loss. The first song, "New Low," is more than a return to music for the internationally celebrated singer-songwriter and activist: it is a definition of form, a call for uprising in the face of global disaster, at the most critical moment for Sarah to raise her voice, one of the most distinctive in Canadian music. The vitality of Sarah's new music belies the passage of time since her last record, "Oh Little Fire" (2010). Nearly twenty years from the release of her debut, "You Were Here" (2000), "Are You Gone" brings a close to Sarah's period of musical quietude with a rousing artistic statement, rich in detail and emotion, from the heart and for the spirit. This is Sarah Harmer's first appearance at the The Ark in some years, so come and check out this important new statement from a Canadian favorite.
