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
