DenMother is the solo electronic music project of singer-songwriter Sabarah Pilon, currently residing in eastern Canada.
Incorporating lush, atmospheric vocal elements over layers of texture, drum and synth, DenMother’s sound can be described as the ethereal converging with the feral.
Having moved to the Maritimes from Ontario in 2009, Pilon began experimenting with electronic music production in her bedroom, initially self-releasing music under the moniker ‘Orphan’. Between 2010 - 2014, she released 5 cassettes with then Maryland-based indie label, I Had An Accident Records, during which time DenMother was born.
After a brief and necessary hiatus, 2016 saw the self-release of “Blood: a memoir”, an autobiographical work documenting the descent into chaos before welcoming sobriety.
Defining DenMother's genre can be difficult, as Pilon chooses not to confine herself on any given project, resulting in a cohesive but ever evolving discography.
Pilon continues to self-produce and release a steady stream of music, including her most recent album “Then Now Forever: Alternate Timeline Edition”, released in 2021. She is currently working on the creation of a new concept album, funded by ArtsNB.
Then Now Forever: Alternate Timeline Edition - released February 2021
Originally released in March 2020, Then Now Forever is an album that explores the idea that love (in all forms) tends to transcend space and time.
Multiple lives and timelines weave their way through the album, with the bittersweetness of the idea that strangers who meet in this lifetime, thought they may not be strangers at all, are not suited to be together this time around.
The Alternate Timeline Edition further explores this idea of a mirrored existence with some re-mixes and previously unreleased tracks.
