Phyllis Sinclair – Dreams of the Washerwomen (2011)

A lady of conviction. In every way, Phyllis Sinclair is a lady of conviction. As if the musical mien of Joni Mitchell and the irrepressible human force of Nelson Mandela were corralled into the same heart, Phyllis Sinclair creates songs of dignity and change. Ethnically of the Canadian Cree tribe, or “Swampy Cree” as she jovially qualifies, and raised in deep poverty by a single mother in Winnipeg, her musical blend of folk, pop, and country seeks to encourage those who struggle with life and often places her in league with fellow messengers like Joan Baez, Judy Collins and Stan Rogers. Now three albums in to her recording career with a steady wave of critical acclaim raising her up, her mark on humanity has become deep and defined.
