Sarah Cripps, an urban country artist born in Brighton, Ontario and currently based in Toronto, is part Neko Case, part Cowboy Junkies, and defying the ‘country’ label by bringing pop, roots and old-fashioned country elements into her style of music. It has worked out well for her so far, winning a Toronto Independent Music Award for Best Country Artist in 2012.
Sarah is embarking the first leg of her ‘Ghosts of Men’ tour in Western Canada in February, following up in March with dates in Ontario before heading to Eastern Canada in April! She has a date in Kelowna on February 20th at the Minstrel Cafe! You’d be hard pressed to find an artist who has paid her dues as many times over, honing her songwriting and travelling across Canada several times over to build her fan base the tried and true way – one show at a time.
Sarah’s new album, Change, will be sold at shows through her tour and released soon. In addition, Sarah will maintain a video blog of her tour, release a creepy indie video for her track ‘Ghost of a Man’ and be active on social media.
