In other things, Sally is working away on her next album… More on that soon!
Sally joins Claudia Karvan, Alice Garner, The New Yorker cartoonist Liza Donnelly, and a host of other talented women for the first issue of Open Field iPad magazine. Each woman featured in the magazine shares a personal story about a transforming moment in their life. Sally provides a personal interview about her close friend Lara Meyerratken, and how Lara has inspired and shaped Sally’s life and music.
All proceeds from sales of Open Field magazine go to women, via the charity CARE. The magazine is available via iTunes.
Sally would like to introduce her new side project, Alphabet Botanical. It’s a creative collaboration, a magical wonderland, an escape from her solo work, in which she plans to collaborate with many different artists.
So far, she has co-written and recorded two songs with the very talented Tim Myers, and she has co-written and recorded a duet with her good friend Ben Lee.
Alphabet Botanical’s first single A New Feeling is now available worldwide on iTunes.
For more information on the project check out the new Alphabet Botanical website.
Sally would also like to say a huge thank you to Bon Iver and the entire band and crew for having her along as the support for the Australian shows. She was really inspired by the Bon Iver shows, and is now back in her home studio working away on her next solo album.
Also, a reminder that the Seeker Lover Keeper album is now available on iTunes in Japan, the USA and Canada. On April 2 the album will be released in the UK on Micro Data Records!
After a busy year touring with band Seeker Lover Keeper, Sally is excited to announce that she will be supporting Grammy award nominated artist Bon Iver AKA Justin Vernon on his Australian tour in March 2012.
With writing now underway for her fourth album (and her second under her own name as she previously released records under the ‘New Buffalo’ moniker), Sally intends to record her new solo album in 2012. “I have been working on some songs for my next solo album, even though I have been really busy playing shows with Seeker Lover Keeper. I love Bon Iver’s music, and can’t wait to play some of my new songs live.”
Vernon’s appreciation of Sally’s work is well documented. In 2009 he named Sally’s New Buffalo album ‘Somewhere, anywhere.’ as the most important album to him of the last few years. Earlier in 2011 Vernon went on record for Triple J’s Hottest 100 Australian Albums, saying “It became the most important album for me for two to three years. It was so complete.”
Sally joins Bon Iver for the following dates:
Saturday March 3 – Perth International Arts Festival, Perth
Tuesday March 6 – Thebarton Theatre, Adelaide
Thursday March 8 – Sidney Myer Music Bowl, Melbourne
Thursday, Friday, Saturday March 15, 16 & 17 – The Tivoli, Brisbane
