Product Overview

Sarah Harmer talks about her new album, I'm a Mountain:

"My friend gave me a Tarot card reading over the phone one night as I was watching TV with a guitar in my lap. 'I've drawn a mountain,' she said. 'I'm a mountain,' I said. So began a song that became the title track of my new record. Most of these songs have been milling about in my mind for a while now; some I started writing back when I put down the electric guitar and ding-digga-dinged my way through summer on the back porch. All of them live in the same wide frame and seem to belong together."

I'm a Mountain, Sarah's third Zoe release, is a beautiful collection of folk and country tinged originals, accompanied by a few choice covers, including Dolly Parton's "Will He Be Waiting For Me."

Artist Bio
Sarah HarmerI grew up on the escarpment on the farm where my family still lives, within a long green corridor that is prized for its fresh water resources, its endangered species habitats, its prime agricultural soils and its wetlands and forests. These lands are under serious threat from the aggregate (sand, gravel, shale) industry. The problem is that large multinationals companies want to open new quarries on top of the escarpment and extract the rock below these ecosystems, thereby removing and destroying them. So, after writing the song, I got the idea for the "I Love the Escarpment" Tour and set out in June 2005 with some of my best musical mates to hike the escarpment and make music along the way.Julie Fader (vocals, keys), Jason Euringer (vocals, stand-up bass), Spencer Evans (clarinet, accordion), Joey Wright (mandolin, guitar) and I hit the Bruce Trail (the continuous hiking trail that goes from one end of the escarpment to the other) and spent two weeks rock climbing, caving, hiking, and performing in theatres and community halls along Southern Ontario's spine. All proceeds of the tour went to help finance the research and advocacy work of Protecting Escarpment Rural Land (PERL), a volunteer organization that I helped form last winter when the new quarry proposal came to light in my old stomping grounds of North Burlington. After a wonderful tour we put away our hiking boots and we went into reaction studio in Toronto to capture these songs, all wrapped in up our camaraderie.
