Sarah Hiltz – In The Folk Roots Radio Studio

Toronto based Sarah Hiltz has been turning heads for the quality of songwriting, that dips from folk into jazz. Her latest album, 2017’s “Beauty in the Blue” is a collection of songs written while riding the rails across Canada as part of the Via Rail Artists On Board programme. The album, produced with Kevin Howley from Running Red Lights, is the first to feature her long-term stage collaborators, drummer Jordan Michaelis and multi-instrumentalist David Puzak. Sarah Hiltz joined us in the studio to chat about her music and play three songs from Beauty In The Blue live.

Fine guitar work and smooth vocal stylings that blend her jazz and folk styles together like the finest of whiskeys.
