“If a thunderstorm had a voice, it would sound like Megan Nash.”
The Afternoon Edition Weekdays, CBC Radio
From the minute you meet Megan, you know her. Her spirituality, losses, and the truth behind her stories and songs. She is as open with herself as she is with her songwriting. Combining honesty and a powerful voice to create an unbeatable performance, Megan Nash is the shivers down your spine, the sugar in your tea and the feeling you can’t shake on a late night walk in the middle of nowhere.
Sarah Jane Scouten
“Drawing upon traditional melodies that almost biologically are instantly singable, but combining them with emotions, sentiments and stories that are relatable even now. Stan Rogers was able to do it, Ron Hynes was able to do it, Kate McGarrigle was able to do it – and Sarah Jane Scouten is able to do it.”
– Tom Power, CBC q and Deep Roots
At age 5, Sarah Jane Scouten was sitting on the dining room table, singing “Lace and Pretty Flowers,” by Canadian country-folk musician, Willie P. Bennett. Hank Williams and Stan Rogers were her greatest inspirations, both a staple at Sunday morning pancake breakfast and afterward, singing bluegrass and gospel music with her father and sister Anna Scouten on Bowen Island, BC. Her talent for performing came naturally, and as chance would have it, so emerged a knack for songwriting. Bringing us up to date, Sarah Jane Scouten is an internationally touring songwriter, loved by audiences across the Northern Hemisphere.
