From singing up at storm recently at the Venetian and Sands Casinos in Macau China to mesmerising packed crowds at the Gold Coast Jazz and Blues Club in Queensland and on the festival circuit (Sally was a featured artist in 2008 at the Newcastle Jazz Festival and the Kings Cross Festival), Sally performs in and around Australia and internationally with her bands, consisting of the cream of the Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane jazz scenes: Bill Risby (piano), Natalie Morrison (bass), Andrew Dickeson (drums), Ian Cooper (violin), James Muller (guitar) and Adrian Cunningham (sax).
Sally performs with big bands right down to an intimate duo.
Sally has released two albums to date. Her brand new album \’One Bite At the Cherry\’ and her debut album \’Little Evil Me\’ (released under the Newmarket Music label) continue to receive extensive airplay across jazz and blues radio stations Australia wide.
Born into a musical family, Sally has studied singing under some of Sydney’s jazz legends including Kerrie Biddell, Joy Yates and Steve Clisby. Sally started out mastering classical piano from age 4 which she went on to teach for many years (having reached AMEB grade 8). Sally also studied drama, classical ballet, tap and character dancing for over a decade. During her youth she also appeared on various childrens’ television programs.
Formerly a lawyer, Sally was a Senior Associate in the mergers and aquisitions team at Mallesons Stephen Jaques (the leading law firm in the Asia Pacific) until Dec 2005 when she hung up her briefcase (but kept her stilettos on) to follow her passion for music full time – and hasn\’t looked back….aint life grand, you just never know where you\’re \’gonna end up\’!
