Sally Crosby Short Info

Sally Crosby is a British singer-songwriter who grew up in rural Mid Wales. An acoustic guitar-based singer-songwriter, her songs are sincere, raw, impassioned and emotive. She started out in music aged just five as a piano student, a few years later and with a proven ear for music she was soon studying the violin and the clarinet also.

With a background as a classically trained musician, including being the leader of her country youth orchestra as a teen, Sally went on to study music and creative writing at university and found herself spreading her time between playing the violin in orchestras and orchestral pits, and with folk-rock band The Rambling Pilgrims, who would tour the local area. Fresh out of graduation saw Sally turn to writing for herself in a contemporary style, mostly for piano and the acoustic guitar, an instrument she taught herself as a teenager.

In 2013 she released her first single to the internet, receiving airplay, and by summer 2014 she had appeared on the festival scene with a packed-out schedule of dates across England and Wales including Wakestock Festival alongside singer-songwriters such as Tom Odell and Frank Turner, and FOCUS Wales, a festival with a focus on promoting young Welsh talent. Bucket of Leaves EP went live on Spotify and iTunes in October 2014 with her track 'Comet' being chosen to receive airplay on BBC Radio 6 and BBC Radio Wales shortly after.

Sally's next EP is set to be heavily ukulele based with her new songs having been previewed in a radio session and interview with Choice Radio in Gloucester. In 2015 Sally played a host of shows and sessions with a view to promote under the radar talent, such as Oak Sessions, The Narrowboat Sessions and Sofar Sessions. Now in 2016, she is currently working on the release of her next EP 'All I Seem to Know How to Do is Write Songs About You', playing a few select shows throughout the UK in between. She played a feature show once more at FOCUS Wales 2016, previewing her newest material.
