Sarah Hope Slean (born 21 June 1977) is a Canadian singer-songwriter, musician, poet, visual artist and occasional actress. She has released eleven albums to date (including EPs and live albums). On 28 September 2004, Slean released her fourth album, Day One. Here Slean's piano takes a less important spot for the first time in her career. The focus is more on beats, rhythms and guitar, which is evident in the album's first single, "Lucky Me". The up-tempo title track "Day One", and "Mary", a song about Slean's grandmother, were released as the second and third singles.
