Sarah McLachlan, one of the most gifted and acclaimed singer-songwriters of her generation, recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of her multi-platinum recording career in late 2008 with the release of Closer: The Best Of Sarah McLachlan.
Since her signing with Nettwerk Records two decades ago, every one of Sarah McLachlan's studio and live albums and videos has been certified gold, platinum, or multi-platinum by the RIAA. Touch (1988) and Solace (1991) were both gold sellers. Her 1994 breakthrough, the triple platinum Fumbling Towards Ecstasy, was followed by the digitally enhanced multimedia version of The Freedom Sessions (certified Gold in 1995).
As of 2006, the Nova Scotia native has sold more than 40 million albums worldwide. Her best-selling album to date is Surfacing, for which she won two # (out of three nominations) and eight Juno Awards. In addition to her personal artistic efforts, she founded the Lilith Fair tour, which showcased female musicians in the late 1990s. She has won three GRAMMY awards for "Building a Mystery," "Last Dance," and "I Will Remember You."
Known for the emotional sound of her ballads, some of her most popular songs include "Angel," "Building a Mystery," "Adia," "Possession," "Fallen," "I Will Remember You," and "World on Fire."
