Editors’ Notes

Sarah Harmer reaffirms her gift for closely-observed, finely-wrought songwriting on Oh Little Fire, her first new album in four years. After taking a break to work as an environmental advocate, the Canadian singer/songwriter returns to her craft with a refreshed perspective and a strengthened sense of melody. She also benefits from Gavin Brown’s production, which adds some astringent guitar and propulsive rhythms to her dreamy style of folk-pop. Harmer’s bemused, often bittersweet take on human relationships are expressed in quick, deft lyric strokes — tunes like “New Loneliness,” “The Marble in Your Eyes” and “Washington” are at once vivid and subtly evocative. “Captive” and “Late Bloomer” come from her sweeter side, though even these songs retain a wry edge. Though all the tracks here are solid, “Silverado” (a duet with Neko Case) stands out for its spacey blend of alt-country sounds and gorgeously visionary language. Harmer’s wistful vocal style — reminiscent of Leigh Nash and Leslie Feist – makes each track feel like a personal confession.

Customer Reviews

A Great Return

Once again Sarah Harmer has come out with a great CD. Her beautiful lilting voice resonates throughout her newest album. Rather than reinventing herself in the CD, she continues to do what she does best, tell stories through her songs and bring a smile to your face. From the hauntingly beautiful and poignant songs like New Loneliness, to the more upbeat cheerful tunes like One Match, this CD doesn't disappoint and is a great return for Sarah! My only hope is that we don't have to wait another 5 years for her next CD!

Oh Little Fire

A very beautiful listening session is in store for you. I think this album will speak to all of us. Certainly, the best yet for Sarah. Keep it coming!

A long time coming

I've been waiting so long for her to put out a new one. This does not disappoint on any level. "One Match" and "Careless" are particularly strong efforts, but the whole album is worth checking out.
