You can really hear Dana Sipos' exquisite voice on her latest album, Roll Up the Night Sky (released through Muddy Roots Recordings). The local singer/songwriter (she has lived in Hamilton and Guelph among other places) has created a wonderfully sparse, organic album that still manages to fill the room.
Its ethereal sound will haunt you after listening. Dana knows how to set a mood using minimal instrumentation. The feel is very artistic and cinematic.
Helping her out is a few amazing performers: Ben Hermann, Mark McIntyre, Michael Feuerstack, John Tielli, and Pietro Amato.
There are many places to download this incredible album: Bandcamp, eMusic and iTunes.

Some albums escape our radar, so occasionally we'll be catching up with some mini-reviews!
The pop folk sound of 2011's Lay of the Land shows another side of Dana. This banjo-laden, infectious collection is perfect for some good times (though there are some impressive slower tunes as well). She doesn't skimp on the well-crafted lyrics though.
This is also available via Bandcamp, eMusic and iTunes.
