Since her signing with Arista Records nearly two decades ago, every one of Sarah McLachlan’s studio and live albums has been certified gold, platinum, or multi-platinum by the RIAA. TOUCH (1988) and SOLACE (1991) were both gold sellers. Her 1994 breakthrough, the 3X-platinum FUMBLING THROUGH ECSTASY, was followed by the digitally enhanced multimedia version of THE FREEDOM SESSIONS (1995, gold). “I never have set goals, in the sense that I expected to be successful or get to a certain place. My idea of success has always been, does it feel right? Does it feel good to me? Do I enjoy doing it? And somehow miraculously, I’ve been able to follow that path and have a great success at it.” “So this whole career, the life that I have, the opportunities that I’ve been given—it all comes as unexpected. Every day I pinch myself, you know? I can’t believe all this has happened to me.”
