Wandering Through Walls
Sally's early life was inspired and shaped by a rich tradition of music in her family. With her Boston Pops trumpeteer great grandfather, opera singing grandmother, and professional classical guitarist father, it would seem that Sally would have found a comfortable spot in the classical world and for a while she did. It was while studying Opera and classical flute in college however that she discovered her true love of songwriting and improvisation. Shortly thereafter, Sally left the classical world, moved to San Francisco, began playing the guitar, writing her own songs and playing jazz and world music on the flute. While working at Berkeley, California's famed traditional music venue, Freight and Salvage she discovered and fell in love with acoustic folk music and bluegrass. These genres changed her musical disposition forever and had a major impact in her songwriting. Sally moved to Boulder, Colorado and quickly immersed herself in the bustling acoustic music scene of the Rockies. She began performing extensively in venues throughout the Boulder/Denver area and embarked upon recording her debut album. Sally's debut album 'Wandering Through Walls' was released in July of 2007 and showcases some of Boulder, Colorado's finest musicians. Ross Martin on guitar, Bill McKay of Leftover Salmon on piano and organ, Peter Sharpe on acoustic guitar and mandolin, and the engineering wizardry of James Tuttle all lend their vast talents to Sally's excellent songwriting. The result is an album full of depth, soul, and exceptional musicality. Sally has currently teamed up with the multi-talented Peter Sharpe who can be heard throughout the album, 'Wandering Through Walls'. The duo is presently touring extensively throughout the U.S. in support of the debut album.
