Jane Siberry 

Tuesday, March 7, at the Beachland Ballroom.

In the early '80s, Canadian songstress Jane Siberry's sound was a dazzling blend of the Cocteau Twins' ethereality, the pointed, satiric craftiness of Laurie Anderson, and the pulsing minimalism of Philip Glass. Her voice can be enigmatic one moment, earthy-sexy the next. Her career has followed her muse -- ambient dreamscapes in collaboration with Brian Eno (1993's When I Was a Boy) and contributions to a Barney movie and the cable series The L Word, which confounded record companies' expectations. So Siberry founded her own label, Sheeba, guaranteeing complete artistic freedom. Recent years have found her to be a matchless interpreter, reinventing Gloria Gaynor's disco anthem "I Will Survive" along with hymns to the Divine by Bach, Handel, and Holst.
