Sarah is the second Scouten to be showcased on Here On Out. I find it's really interesting to see the different styles between Sarah and her sister, not only in their songs but in their singing style. As different as it is, they compliment each other perfectly, musically and as sisters.
I got to spend a few hours with both of them and it's clear that they're a close duo. Nicknames and inside jokes were thrown around and I love inside jokes, I wish to be part of one someday. We started the day in the Old Port of Montreal. It was really windy out although the day turned out to be beautiful. Afterwards we filmed outside Sarah's apartment on her fire escape.
Sarah possesses a strong, booming voice with heartfelt lyrics of personal and fictional experiences. The fire escape was surrounded by walls, which amplified her voice and it really hit me as she was performing. It's a voice that stays in your head.
In our 14th session, Sarah Jane Scouten performs "Palm of My Hand" and "Magpie Waltz", which features Anna Scouten.
