SiriusXM Canada, the country's leading audio entertainment company, announced it will launch Sarah McLachlan Radio, a limited engagement channel featuring music, performances and more from across the iconic Canadian singer-songwriter's career.
Starting on October 17th Sarah McLachlan Radio will take over Iceberg (Sirius 161) and The Verge (XM 173) for four days to showcase McLachlan's treasured music catalogue. In addition to the classic singles and albums that made Sarah an international household name, subscribers will hear rare tracks, acoustic recordings, a track-by-track walk through of her new album Shine On and a special never-before-aired broadcast of this summer's SiriusXM Town Hall with Sarah McLachlan.
"Sarah and her music are such a powerful force around the world," said Jeff Leake, Director of Music Programming, SiriusXM Canada. "With her incredible talent and incredibly giving spirit, it's easy to see why she is so loved and why we are so happy to be able to offer up this special programming to our subscribers."
"I am so blessed that I get the opportunity to reach so many people with Shine On, my tour and now on SiriusXM," said Sarah McLachlan. "SiriusXM has been a great supporter of mine and the Sarah McLachlan School of Music and I look forward to joining their subscribers across North America with Sarah McLachlan Radio."
The SiriusXM Town Hall with Sarah McLachlan will air daily during the channel takeover. The performance was recorded on September 18th at the Sarah McLachlan School of Music, which provides free music education for at-risk and underserved youth in Vancouver B.C. and is proudly supported by SiriusXM. Listeners will be treated to an intimate acoustic performance from Sarah as well as a candid interview with the superstar.
Listeners who have SiriusXM Internet Radio access can also listen to Sarah McLachlan Radio on the SiriusXM Internet Radio App and online.
Sarah McLachlan Radio and support of the Sarah McLachlan School of Music is part of SiriusXM Canada's ongoing initiatives to provide exposure to and support Canadian talent. Through Canadian indie music channels The Verge (XM 173) and Iceberg (Sirius 161), francophone channels Influence Franco (XM 174) and Attitude Franco (Sirius 164), plus many more, SiriusXM continues to offer a leading platform for Canadian artists.
