SALLY LONDON - SINGER - SONGWRITER - MUSICIAN

 

Jazz singer/songwriter and multi instrumentalist Sally London returned with rave reviews as a headline act for the second time from the 2015 Tangier International Jazz Festival in Morocco:  "The public was carried away by the atmosphere that reigned on the stage, thanks to a remarkable performance given by the artist Sally London, one of the best composers / singers from Australia, who brilliantly moved from jazz to pop with her own compositions and a great sense of humor." Soleil FM, 93.5. 

 

"Sydney's Sally London: a chanteuse who is all platinum, classy and captivating and who has one of the best voices in this country". Koop Koooper, Cocktail Nation - The Interviews" Nov 2011   

 

 “Sally's  brazen, often playfully funny sensuality is like a splash of ice water underneath a desert sun. Her voice, sliding in between a sex-kitten purr and a soulful croon, is what microphones were made for." Music Industry News Network (USA), 28 Feb 2011.

 

Sally's music is regularly aired across community and jazz radio in Australia, the USA and Canada.  Sally’s compositions were finalists in the Music Oz 2013 Australian Independent Music Awards, the 2013 International Song Of The Year contest, the 2010 and 2012 Australian Songwriting Competition, the 2010 Great American Song Contest and were featured in 2013 on the Qantas in-flight Radio playlist.     "Lexi" was second place in the 2011 Great American Song Contest.      "Love Tequila" was ranked number 2 and "Hardest Mistakes”  ranked number 5 on the Indie Singles charts in December 2012 by the major radio platform in the USA and Canada. 

 

Sally's original compositions have been featured on various independent compilation albums released in Australia, and her version of the latin jazz standard "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" was released in November 2011 by EMI in Europe alongside her idols:   Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Eartha Kitt, Nancy Wilson and Dean Martin.   The song charted on the Greece Jazz Music Chart in 2010.
