Sarah Harmer | Forty Creek Black Box Sessions

Are You Gone marks acclaimed Canadian songwriter Sarah Harmer’s sixth studio album, and her first new record since Oh Little Fire in 2010. She describes the long-awaited album as a spiritual successor to her 2000 commercial breakthrough album You Were Here.

Harmer spent the past decade a fixture in local politics, working as an environmental activist and co-founding the Protecting Escarpment Rural Land (PERL) organization and engaged in preventing quarry development in the Niagara Escarpment. During that time she still managed to gradually write music and playing a small show now and then. While pondering the “ghosts” of loss, capitalism’s gluttony and music’s potential as a public platform, Sarah got to work on Are You Gone, her most sophisticated record to date.
