SALLIE FORD IN-STORE PERFORMANCE AND Q&A TUESDAY, NOV. 25 (ALL AGES)

1408483168Sallie Ford will perform live at The Record Exchange (1105 W. Idaho St.) at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 25. As always, this Record Exchange in-store event is free and all ages. Sallie Ford is performing at Neurolux for Radio Boise Tuesday later that evening and we have tickets for sale at the store!

A Q&A with Sallie and Boise Weekly music writer (and Record Exchange staffer) Ben Schultz will follow the performance!

ABOUT SALLIE FORD

sallie-ford-slap-backWhen Sallie Ford first burst into the music scene she quickly established herself as one of the most powerful voices in indie rock.  Her new album Slap Back was released on Oct. 14, marking her debut on Vanguard Records.  Produced by Chris Funk (Decemberists, Black Prairie, Red Fang), the new album introduces Sallie’s all-new line-up – Anita Lee Elliot (Viva Voce & Blue Giant) on bass, Amanda Spring (Point Juncture, WA) on drums & Cristina Cano (Albatross & Siren & the Sea) on keyboards.

Sallie Ford grew up playing music in Asheville, NC. In 2006, she decided to move to Portland, OR where she met her band The Sound Outside. Together they released three albums and an EP but parted ways in 2013.  The beginning of this year Sallie fulfilled her dream of starting an all-girl rock n’ roll band, and in February of 2014, the band went into the studio with producer Chris Funk to begin recording Slap Back.  The new record has a surf, garage rock & classic rock feel. Sallie proclaims Slap Back to be an “ode to all babe rockers from Joan Jett, Blondie and Pat Benatar to PJ Harvey & Exene Cervenka.”

Sallie Ford has performed on the Late Show with David Letterman and garnered critical acclaim from USA Today, NY Daily News, Boston Globe, Interview, Nylon, BUST, Paste and many more.
