When you listen to Sarah Harmer, the singer-songwriter-environmentalist we've come to love, you feel her music in your heart. And in an industry that pumps out songs like candy from a machine, Sarah's not afraid to take her time getting it right – with the confidence to experiment and let her music grow. We've waited five years for a new album, which will be released in June. "It's very different from my last one. It's much more electric: rock/pop – it definitely rocks!"

Her music isn't the only thing that Sarah's rocking. She grew up on her family's farm on the Niagara Escarpment in Southern Ontario, and she helped form Protecting Escarpment Rural Land (PERL). Every year she does a benefit concert on Mount Nemo, just down the road from the land she's helping to protect.

What you may not know about her: "I love to read. I'm reading A Fair Country by John Ralston Saul. It's about how our Canadian identity is embedded in our Aboriginal roots – and it's giving me vision on how to go forward."

You can listen to the complete interview with Sarah below.
