Toronto, ON – August 27, 2014
Toronto-based musician and poet Sarah Teitel is releasing her first studio album Who Are You Holding, featuring seven original songs and an interpretation of a traditional Welsh folksong. The album is now available for purchase on iTunes (http://bit.ly/1BexD3C) and from Indie Pool (http://bit.ly/1tpKM4l). Who Are You Holding will be officially launched on Friday, September 26, 2014 at 7:00 PM at Project Gallery (1109 Queen Street East) with an exclusive performance by Sarah and showcase of the paintings and drawings she created for the album. The artwork will be on display in Project Gallery from September 26th until October 1st.
Sonically, Who Are You Holding is a blend of contemporary and traditional influences with incorporated elements of indie-folk, country, classical, Celtic, and African music.
“Through music and poetry, Who Are You Holding explores the complex nature of the self. How is it that we can be both generous and treacherous towards ourselves and towards others? In what ways are we are own worst enemies? Where in ourselves can we turn to find comfort? What is self-acceptance? Is it possible to achieve?” Asks Sarah.
Sarah produced Who Are You Holding along with Raffi Altounian, a classical guitarist and instructor at the Royal Conservatory of Music whose work was recently featured in the film Robocop. Altounian also arranged the album which was recorded at the Canterbury Music Company in Toronto, and Jeremy Darby engineered (Sara Bareilles, Serena Ryder).
Sarah has been creating in various mediums for the past decade. An accomplished visual artist, her artwork has been showcased in various exhibitions including Brain Paintings, a solo exhibition at the Hang Man Gallery in 2012. Previously, Sarah has performed all over North America including appearances in Toronto, New York City and Texas. She is thrilled to be able to share Who Are You Holding as it is a work that she feels is reflective of human multiplicity, and her own multiplicity as an artist.
