Make Your Own Bed

Toronto-based singer/songwriter Sarah Burton has impressed on three earlier releases, and new album Make Your Own Bed is another fine effort. She mixes up indie rock, pop and roots influences, and her songs have a nice range of tempos and feels. Valid comparison points would include Sheryl Crow and Jenny Lewis. The production values here are high, thanks to the work of engineer/producer Ken Friesen (Tragically Hip, Blue Rodeo), and producer Derek Downham (The Beauties, Samantha Martin). The decision to cover Treble Charger's rock classic "Red" here is a brave one, but her version is a fine one (TC's Bill Priddle guests on it). Her own compositions are equally effective.

A hard-working performer, Burton recently gigged out west and in L.A.. She has upcoming dates in North Bay (May 15), Sudbury (May 16) and Toronto (May 19 at Relish).
