Canadian award winner, Sarah Smith, set to kick off the Whistler Pride and Ski Festival off in style

…This woman can belt out a song with energy and passion even after being on the road days at a time. So far, one of the best concerts I have heard live…” HerShe Magazine.

“…Sarah Smith… a woman that I believe could help to renew the rightful place of the big voice, big personality female rock star….” Mallard Music

“…With a voice that is often, in fact almost always, compared to Bonnie Raitt, Melissa Etheridge, or Janis Joplin, Smith makes you want to rock out and at the same time recharges your heart and soul….” Curve Magazine
