Discovery: Sarah Jane Scouten

Chaste Tree and Pennyroyal is a curiously titled track by Canadian folk musician Sarah Jane Scouten.

By Jane Howkins

It’s a beautiful song, featuring a lovely folky melody that works very well with Sarah Jane’s singing voice. There’s an ethereal quality to the track that suits the style of song very well, and we would be very interested to hear where she goes next with her music. Lyrically, the track is actually a murder ballad, with the title referring to toxic chemicals that can kill if consumed incorrectly (don’t try this at home!)
