Sarah McLachlan: Influences

Sarah McLachlan: Influences

Sarah McLachlan's dreamy, piano-driven balladry defined a women-led era of singer/songwriters, but she did it with help from her forebears. McLachlan's ethereal vocals channel Joni Mitchell's lilting folk and Kate Bush's otherworldly rasp, while her piercing lyrics reflect the raw emotion of Sinead O'Connor's writing and Elton John's effortless storytelling.
