OK, maybe not the pants right off—-he is married to lovely lady Sarah Slean, after all—-but last night's show left nobody wanting.
People who pre-ordered the new album from the new website's store also received a download to the non-album track "Parasol". The i Tunes version of the album included two additional non-album tracks, "The Rose" and "The Lonely Side of the Moon." In September 2008, Slean announced her intention to release the non-album tracks from The Baroness as an EP.Both Parasol and Modern Man have been confirmed by Slean in Question and Answer sessions in her official website.Vocalist Raine Maida explained the origins of the piano version: "We’re gonna do a song from our first record now, that was given to us on a cassette tape, a very different version, from a girl named Sarah Slean from Toronto..." In October 2008, Slean performed at the first annual Canwest Cabaret Festival in Toronto.Slean performed sets of her own music accompanied by bassist Joe Phillips and drummer Mark Mariash, and also contributed to multi-artist "songbook" performances of the songs of Leonard Cohen and Kurt Weill.This blog mostly holds her playlists, some show reviews, and an occasional list!
I really can't express how I'm feeling right now...On 13 December 2007, Slean's website underwent a massive overhaul in preparation for her newest studio album, entitled The Baroness.Visitors to the new site were invited to sign up for Slean's new mailing list, and in doing so would be able to download a demo version of her newest single, "Get Home".Slean was born in Pickering, Ontario, and recorded her first EP Universe (1997) at the age of nineteen. Night Bugs was her first major label album, co-produced by Slean and Hawksley Workman, and released by WEA in Canada and Atlantic Records in the United States.On 28 September 2004, Slean released her fourth album, Day One.It is a special city and my friends from across the country agree with that. All songs are either local artists or artists singing about Saskatoon.
