“My first thought when hearing her enigmatic swooping vocals was of Jeff Buckley… The whole album has an enchanted feel; the songs are personal but not confessional, and the orchestration develops them perfectly. There’s unflinching clarity and also beauty in these songs of love and loss.“

Alison Bentley, London Jazz News, UK


"...(N)ous avons eu droit à cette matière riche, fruit d'une auteure-compositrice-interprète folkie, pianiste et guitariste dont la connaissance du travail harmonique propre au jazz, aussi aux musiques classique ou contemporaine, s'avère nettement supérieure à la moyenne chansonnière."

Alain Brunet, La Presse, Montreal, CA

“Mélodies extrêmement élaborées…musicalité, diction et goût remarquables chez Sienna Dahlen (délicieuse voix, typiquement“britannique”), à l’image de celle de Josefine Lindstrand chez Django Bates.

Éric Quenot, Jazz Magazine, Paris, FR

Sienna et Rodrigo

Guitarist, Rodrigo Simoēs, currently based in Montreal, hails from Brazil. His playing style is singular and infectious and together we enjoy covering everything from original folk compositions to jazz to other styles of creative music.


Ice Age Paradise


The Ice Age Paradise band is a group of musicians possessing broad and eclectic sonic palettes whose work together began four years ago. Bassist extraordinaire, Andrew Downing (creator of the arrangements for the ensemble) has been a long time collaborator and friend of Sienna’s and the string and horn players in this band include most of the members of Toronto’s popular Queer Songbook Orchestra. In addition to these ensembles, the musicians in this group lead active careers across Canada and on international stages primarily in the new music, classical and jazz scenes.  The rhythm section of the band features (in addition to Andrew Downing) Nick Fraser on drums and Thom Gill on guitar. Our guest background vocalist, Robin Dann, (from the group “Bernice”) is a wonderful musician whose vocal work is highly appreciated by many. Each of the players in this collective soul has something unique and incredible to bring to the music.  The Ice Age Paradise band is a must-hear experience.
