Why See Sarah McLachlan?
ON THE ROAD
A leading light of Canada's alternative rock scene, Sarah McLachlan was one of the most successful singer-songwriters of the 90s. While her 1989 debut Touch established her in her native land, it wasn't until 1993's Fumbling Towards Ecstasy that the rest of the world sat up and took notice. Its follow-up Surfacing proved to be an even bigger hit, eventually selling 16 million copies worldwide. It displayed a slower, more introspective side to McClachlan, with piano led numbers like Angel marking her out as a lyricist of rare emotional candor and clarity.
Alongside her musical output, McLachlan also founded the Lillith Fair music festival which sought to redress the gender bias of rock tours by only featuring female acts. It was a huge success, out-selling the likes Coachella in the same year.
