Sarah Harmer is among the current wave of Canadian artists of all stripes making their mark both at home and here in the States. Harmer crafts quirky yet infectious melodies and sometimes chases the lyric past the usual rhymed break, like she's following a butterfly or a bird. She has a gift for making such melodic and lyrical wanderings seem natural, not contrived as they might in the hands of a lesser songsmith. Her voice is by turns haunting and high, straightforward--almost conversational--or husky, with a breathy catch.
