With over 30 years in the recording industry, McLachlan is a multi-platinum singer and songwriter best known for her intimate vocals and relatable lyrics. Canadian-born, this Grammy and Juno Award winning artist has sold over 40 million albums throughout her career and was recently inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame.
McLachlan’s multi-platinum album Surfacing was released in 1997 and became her best-selling album to-date, reaching eight-times platinum in the US. The album won a Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Performance for “Building a Mystery” and another for Best Pop Instrumental Performance for “Last Dance”. She won another Grammy in 1999 for “I Will Remember You”.
In addition to her personal artistic efforts, McLachlan founded the Lilith Fair tour, which showcased female artists and brought over 2 million people together during its three-year run. Lilith Fair raised more than $7 million for women’s charities and helped launch the careers of numerous women performers. The festival was the most successful all-female music event and was the top-grossing touring festival at that time.
In 2002 McLachlan founded her non-profit organization, the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, which provides top quality music instruction at no cost, in a safe and nurturing environment, for at-risk and underserved children and youth. From an early age, music provided McLachlan with the tools she needed to navigate the challenges she faced in her life, so she recognizes how important it is for every child to have those same opportunities.
In recent years, she’s released the 2014 record Shine On and the 2016 Christmas album Wonderland, which scored a Traditional Pop Vocal Album Grammy nomination.
There’s a startlingly intimate quality to her voice and her music that’s virtually unmatched. Her live shows showcase not only her impressive vocal skill, but also her musical skills. Don’t miss an intimate evening of songs and storytelling.
