Canadian born & raised Sarah Jane Scouten is a songwriter of rare quality, combining sounds of early country music, ballad singing, bluegrass, folk rock and 60’s music. It’s in short, modern indie Americana that knows exactly where it comes from, with confidence and sophistication only bought by time. An ever-expanding palette and a warbling iconic country voice – honed over many a campfire – brings a freshness to her brand of country music. It’s as relevant today as it is rooted in the music of her forebears.
Sarah Jane’ s upcoming fifth album Turned to Gold (Light Organ Records) is a road trip album, drawing on Tom Petty, Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris and Christine McVie. “Wilder When I Was With You”, with its irresistible chorus, was co-written with Samantha Parton (Be Good Tanyas). “Rose and Carnations” is a tribute to John Prine and “The Great Unknown” reveals a family experience of medical assistance in dying (MAID) She has been nominated for 4 Canadian Folk Music Awards, a Western Canadian Music Award and an International Folk Music Award. She has performed at Vancouver Folk Music Festival, MerleFest, Calgary Folk Music Festival & has opened for Ron Sexsmith, The Sadies and shared the stage with Martha Wainwright, Allison Russell, Martin Carthy & Mandolin Orange (Watchhouse)

An agile voice, ruminative songwriting, and love for classic country, bluegrass, indie pop, and everything in between.”- American Songwriter
