Two years ago Sienna relocated to Toronto, ON and recently, she completed her Master of Music degree at the University of Toronto. Sienna freelances professionally in Canada, the US and abroad.

“..I love her poetry. A voice filled with Molten Light!” Katie Malloch CBC radio 2

“Jazz trained, pop-savvy and musically accomplished, West Coast transplant Sienna Dahlen negotiates many influences, melding them into her own distinct sound…As full and rich an indie recording as you’ll hear this year.” Mary Lamey, The Gazette, Montreal, QC

“One of the best albums I’ve heard all year..Sienna Dahlen's voice can put you in a trance..and more importantly, remind you why you love music so much.” Tonya Zelinski, Fast Forward Weekly, Calgary, AB

“…What an incredible direction for jazz. Excellent singer..and beautiful instrumental work...she sounds like she's got something to say and really knows how to say it. Joni Mitchell should hear her. People would hear a musical/spiritual link between them.”

Bill Henderson, Canadian Producer, Composer, Musician and SOCAN board- member

“When I listen to an artist, I listen from three main perspectives: technical prowess/command of musical language, emotional/spiritual connection, and vision/creative artistry (ie: does this individual have a Voice, something that makes them unique?). There is much music that excels in one or two of these areas; the best music, however, displays a more or less equal balance between these elements, and in my opinion Sienna falls into this rather rare category.”

Dave Restivo, Three-time National Jazz Award-Winning Pianist (2007)
