Album: All The Hours I Have Left To Tell You Anything
Release: November 2, 2018
Singer-songwriter Sarah MacDougall has released her fourth album, All The Hours I Have Left To Tell You Anything. The Swedish Canadian singer-songwriter has secured a long list of performances over the course of her career including major festivals like Iceland Airwaves, Edmonton Folk Festival, and Reeperbahn; while also having the opportunity to share the stage with artists such as Bruce Cockburn, Cat Empire, Tallest Man on Earth, and Passenger.
Sarah MacDougall gives us an album swimming with compassion, wonder, and poetry. As she reflects on love, life, and loss, she does so with a delicate balance of soft vocals and powerful instrumentals – intertwining together to bring us something truly special. “Empire” kicks things off with a heaviness that instantly captures your emotions. From there, there are anthemic moments (“We Are Fire”), stories of romance (“Bleeding on the Dancefloor”) and empathy (“Baby I Know); every emotion is written and produced beautifully. Every song feels like it was crafted from a place of real honesty and reflection. The album then ends with a synth-pop number that falls on the upbeat side of the album, proving that MacDougall can also make you want to dance.
Rebecca here- a Niagara native now living and breathing music in Toronto. As a Ryerson journalism graduate and a self-proclaimed music junkie, I’ve been fortunate enough to write for brands like Andpop and Really Records, and now Canadian Beats. My tastes in music are all over the map- Stevie Wonder to Fall Out Boy; Miranda Lambert to One Direction – which is why I spend almost as much money on concerts as I do on rent. But I have no regrets. If you like my ramblings you can also find me on Twitter (RMattina5) & Instagram (rmattina93).
