Cornerstone to host Juno Award-winning artist from Montreal, Sienna Dahlen

Juno award-winning vocalist, Sienna Dahlen, is on tour behind her new album, Ice Age Paradise.

The Montreal singer/songwriter is stopping for a free all-ages concert at Cornerstone Café & Taphouse on Friday, Feb. 2 at 9 p.m.

Dahlen is also a music educator, an instrumentalist and a composer of six albums of original folk and jazz music to date. Her last album, entitled Verglas, received rave reviews and was signed to the longstanding Montreal jazz label, Justin Time Records.

Her current album, Ice Age Paradise was released in September of 2016 and features a collection of new original compositions that were arranged by bassist, Andrew Downing for a 10-piece ensemble of incredible Toronto-based musicians.

Dahlen has toured her music extensively across Canada, Europe, and parts of the U.S. in addition to numerous appearances in Mexico and South America.

Dahlen has also collaborated on several national and international projects as a co-leader/lyricist with musicians such as Joel Miller and his Dream Cassette band (Canada), Mads Baerentzen’s Lifelines project (Denmark), Lebanese pianist and composer, Wassim Soubra (France) and Paris-based Canadian drummer, Karl Jannuska.

She also appears on Karl’s latest release, alongside vocalist Denzal Sinclaire and is the voice of Mike Rud’s 2014 Juno award-winning album Notes on Montreal. In addition to these collaborations, Dahlen has been a guest vocalist on several occasions with L’Orchestre National de Jazz de Montreal.

Finally, Dahlen is the featured singer on the soundtrack for the 2007 Oscar-winning animated short, The Danish Poet by Torill Kove (music by Kevin Dean).

Cornerstone Café & Taphouse is located at 208 5th Street in Downtown Courtenay.
