Sarah Harmer’s environmental battle adds an edge to her latest album. By Kyle Mullin for New Brunswick’s Telegraph Journal, Oct. 26 2010

Tree branches groan in the wind with an aching rhythm befitting one of Sarah Harmer’s ballads, as the songstress gazes at the landscape she loves – and came too close to losing.

“I kind of took it for granted growing up,” she says of the Niagara Escarpment region she’s been trying to save from bulldozers since 2005, a fight that saw her co-found the group Protecting Escarpment Rural Land (PERL). Her frustration is reflected in the tough sound on much of her latest album, Oh Little Fire.

“When I was little I tromped all over these fields, I know them really well so it’s … very important for me to work to make sure we make good decisions and not have the old industrial growth model dictate decision making.”
