  10. Sarah Slean — “One of the most compelling acts Canada has to offer.” – TIME Canada. Fresh off the release of her eagerly awaited new album, Metaphysics, the highly evocative singer-songwriter who launched her career with the Hawksley Workman-produced Night Bugs (and its stratospheric radio hit single “Sweet Ones”) is more relevant than ever. Slean’s six-year musical hiatus was filled with endeavours — acting, painting, poetry — that fueled the profound observations in her latest work.  Slean’s sound has been compared to Kate Bush, Fiona Apple and Tori Amos, while her deeply personal songs are daringly original, drawing from jazz, classical, pop and global influences. — The BlueShore at Cap on Friday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m.
