Although Sally grew up in a house filled with music, the gift of her first guitar at the age of twelve brought her passion to full bloom. Influenced by the song writing of people like Gordon Lightfoot, Larry Norman, Randy Stonehill, and Bruce Cockburn, she discovered that music was a powerful conduit for recognizing and understanding the processes of life, and the world around us.
Her early training involved Royal Conservatory piano instructions, and classical vocal lessons with the late Joyce Britton of the Houston Opera Company. But it was with the guitar that she began her musical career. Sally made her debut performance at the age of fifteen, and wrote her first song at the age of seventeen. Two decades later she is still sharing her music with audiences provincially and internationally. Her experiences have included performances for conferences, congregations, coffee houses, and camps. Her association with the Brampton Folk Club has given her opportunities at festival venues, concerts, variety shows and local cable television.
From her various influences and life experiences, a distinctive style and sound have evolved. Haunting melodies combined with minor chords, and a unique finger picking style creates resonance that speaks to heart and mind.
The CD “Things Unseen” offers 11 songs dealing with trust, faith, love, relationships, and reflections of life, from the mundane to the exquisite.
