Artist Bio

From North Carolina, Sally Spring along with her husband, the eclectic, edgy, rhythmic Ted Lyons Lyons (Alex Chilton, Percy Sledge, John Lee Hooker), on acoustic resonator guitar resonator (his playing sounds like a mix of Ry Cooder and James Blood Ulmer) perform roots music that combines pop, folk, Memphis, and southern Appalachia styles that will stir your soul. They recently received international acclaim with their latest CD, "Made Of Stars", that charted #1 in Europe (Euro-Americana chart) and #2 worldwide on Americana radio.

Sally is called "a treasure" by Gene Parsons of The Byrds, and "a gem" by Bob Harris of BBC, her her "soulful and gritty style" (Uncut, UK), "transfixing, gorgeous alto" (Sing Out!), "first-rate compositions" (No Depression Magazine) and "fantastic phrasing and tear-at-your-heart emotional complexity" (Net Rhythms, UK) is mesmerizing. Hear music samples at http://www.sallyspring.com and live shows at video links below.

Performances during past few years have ranged from Kerrville's Music and Wine Festival with more than 10,000 participants to No Depression's 10th Anniversary to the intimate setting of America's oldest folk club, Caffe Lena in Saratoga Springs.

Born in California and raised in Goldsboro, North Carolina, Sally literally started singing even before she could speak. The daughter of an inventor/computer trailblazer whose classmates were Hewlett and Packard, Spring grew up thinking outside the box. At 11 years old, she bought her first guitar, figured out open tunings on her own (before there were any books on this) and accompanied herself on a local television appearance a mere six weeks after she started playing. She performed in college coffee houses soon after, clubs a few years later, dropping in and out of school to travel and perform.

She traveled the country on a shoestring making friends and sharing, performing and often recording her southern Americana folk rock music with musicians like Doc Watson, Mama Cass, Rev. Gary Davis, Taj Mahal, Nancy Nevins (Sweet Water), Odetta, Gurf Morlix, Tift Merritt, Caitlin Cary (Whiskeytown), Sylvia Tyson, Peter Stampfel, John McEuen (Nitty Gritty Dirt Band), Marshall Crenshaw, Eric Weissberg and Gene Parsons from The Byrds, among many others.

Made Of Stars
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Na1ITWdz9-U&feature=related
This song was selected as one of the 3 top Americana songs worldwide
”striking it is that you find a beautiful balance on this record between the styles of folk music, country music and moderate rock. The songs of Sally are purely without accent, and as a result she is not limited to a certain region. What Mockingbird did in 2006, also does Made Of Stars again. An artist who it deserves to be heard" Alt-country Forum - Netherlands

Swedish leftwing swing band Cats and Dinosaurs looking for gigs in northen Germany october/november!

Hello!I am booking concerts for Swedish leftwing swing band Cats and Dinosaurs Germany tour, and it would be great to add some house concerts to the tour!
