Buffy Sainte-Marie with The Sadies
Canadian music icon Buffy Sainte-Marie’s bold new album, Power in the Blood, is a sculpture of an artist ever-evolving. The 2015 Polaris Prize and multi-JUNO Award winner is globally celebrated for her 1960s protest anthems (“Universal Soldier”), open-hearted love songs (“Until It’s Time for You to Go”), incendiary powwow rock (“Starwalker”), or the juggernaut pop hit that took home an Academy Award “Up Where We Belong,” which Sainte-Marie co-wrote and Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes sang for the soundtrack to An Officer and a Gentleman.
Joining Buffy Sainte-Marie are The Sadies, who have developed, even perfected, a style of music that is uniquely their own since 1994. Possessing a deep fondness and reverence for the best of country, bluegrass and blues, they are equally informed and influenced by everything from 60s garage and psychedelic rock to surf instrumentals and punk rock.
