Multi-award-winning, platinum-selling musician Sarah Harmer returns to Atlantic Canada to perform in support of her long-awaited new album, Are You Gone (Arts & Crafts).

Released in February, Are You Gone–Harmer’s sixth and first in a decade–is a deeply personal and political collection of songs motivated by the beauty of life, the urgency of the climate crisis, and the question of loss. Harmer called the album a spiritual successor of sorts to her acclaimed 2000 debut, You Were Here, which made many year-end critics’ lists, and which TIME called the year’s best debut album. Its simple title, Are You Gone, is a meditation on the idea of presence, and a bookend to the questions posed on You Were Here – a sharpened, more electric confrontation with the realities of nature and human nature.

The first song “New Low” is more than a return to music for the internationally celebrated singer-songwriter and activist: it is a definition of form, a call-for-uprising in the face of global disaster, at the most critical moment for Harmer to raise her voice – one of the most distinctive in Canadian music. The vitality of « New Low, » its heedless pace, sharp guitars and exclamatory horns, bely the passage of time since Harmer’s last record, Oh Little Fire (2010). Nearly 20 years from the release of her debut, Are You Gone brings a close to Harmer’s period of musical quietude with a rousing artistic statement, rich in detail and emotion, from the heart and for the spirit.

The Boston Globe

Harmer has performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, Ellen, has been nominated for the Polaris Music Prize, garnered nine JUNO Award nominations and two wins, and been widely praised for her “razor-sharp songwriting chops” (NPR Music) and “plainly hooky” melodic sensibility (Rolling Stone).
