Sarah Ann Mc Lachlan, OC, OBC (born January 28, 1968) is a Canadian singer and songwriter known for her emotional ballads and mezzo-soprano vocal range.
As of 2009 she had sold over 30 million albums worldwide.
But Mc Lachlan said Courtnall doesn’t fit the stereotype. “He’s gone through a ton of stuff, and to his credit, has really come out the other side. He had a really tough time, and he came through it.
She would go on to study classical guitar, classical piano, and voice When she was 17 years old and still a student at Queen Elizabeth High School in Halifax, she fronted a short-lived rock band called The October Game.One of the band's songs, "Grind", credited as a group composition, can be found on the independent Flamingo Records release Out of the Fog and the CD Out of the Fog Too. Her high school yearbook predicted that she was "destined to become a famous rock star".Mc Lachlan's best-selling album to date is Surfacing, for which she won two Grammy Awards (out of four nominations) and four Juno Awards.In addition to her personal artistic efforts, she founded the Lilith Fair tour, which showcased female musicians on an unprecedented scale.“We’re sort of tentatively calling it the living room experience because I hate to leave my house,” Mc Lachlan said.
“So I basically am going to take my house with me and I’m going to have it on-stage and I’m going to invite people from the audience up to hang out on-stage with me while I’m performing.” If you go WHAT: Sarah Mc Lachlan WHERE: Saratoga Performing Arts Center, 108 Avenue of the Pines, Saratoga Springs WHEN: 8 p.m.So it was nice to be able to embrace a new story.” Courtnall, at least on paper, might not seem like the most likely person to click with Mc Lachlan, who is known for her sensitive, intelligent and emotionally rich songwriting.The guy, after all, played one of the toughest sports there is, building a solid 16-year NHL career.The lawsuit was also challenging for the Canadian legal system: Vandrei was an admitted stalker whose acknowledged goal in filing the lawsuit was to be near Mc Lachlan.Consequently, precautions were taken to ensure Mc Lachlan's safety if she had to be in the same location as Vandrei.And as the relationship began to happen, Mc Lachlan’s emotional space as a songwriter changed with it.
