SAL is a Cork City based singer-songwriter with a difference. Her music explores the many colours in the spectrum of pop music, always showcasing her own versatility as an artist, whilst maintaining her pop sensibilities.
Originally hailing from County Kildare, SAL has spent her recent years in Cork, creating and performing all the time. After signing a management deal with London based Charlie B Management, SAL was unveiled at Liverpool Irish Festival 2021, where she showcased a set of brand new material with her band. “I love connecting with other people through songs that I’ve written...”, says SAL. “...the connection with the audience is amazing when you’re on stage."
Her first two singles, ‘Bullet In The Heart’, and ‘Everything’, both received an extremely warm welcome from radio and music media in Ireland and the UK. In the world of live music, SAL has covered a huge amount of ground, from gracing stages in some of Ireland’s most prestigious venues and festivals, to regular shows in the UK and Germany. Along the way, she has shared the stage with some amazing artists, such as Declan O’Rourke, Aimee, Mick Flannery, The Stunning, Luka Bloom, Wyvern Lingo, and many more.
Taking influence from a wide range of songwriters (from Sigrid, Blondie, Phoebe Bridgers, Blondie, Stevie Nicks, Christine And The Queens, Moby, Erykah Badu, to Joni Mitchell, Amy Winehouse, Billie Eilish and more), SAL’s reputation as an eclectic songwriter is something that has turned many heads in the industry. She says that she has always found a sense of liberation from songwriting, and that the process allows her most trustworthy self to emerge, ”I love being colourfully descriptive about the simple things that we regularly experience, and highlighting aspects of life that are not so simple at all”.
SAL looks to the future with a huge level of optimism, excited by the prospect of writing and releasing new music regularly, as her single releases reveal a larger body of work. As is the case for many artists, she is happiest when in a creative headspace, “It feels like everything just falls into place, almost like the sensation of when a key unlocks a door. Everything just starts to make sense. It feels really exciting, like letting yourself fall down when you know you’re going to be caught."
SAL recently completed her cafe tour of Ireland performing to sold out audiences nationally. SAL’s third single, ‘Merry Go Round’, reached to Number #1 on the Irish iTunes Charts and consecutively to this her most recent single ‘Red Wine’, reached to Number #1 on the Irish iTunes Charts also. With lots more music up her sleeve, 2023 is set to be a big one for SAL.
