Sally Cooper

Australian Sally Cooper is a full time Professional Internationally touring songbird, who's music crosses over the R&B/Folk/Jazz & Blues genres. Her sensual and soaring vocals consistently offer a spine tingling delivery of both popular song interpretations and the emotive themes in her original songs.

Sally displays well rounded vocal prowess in performances of songs made famous by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Billie Holiday, Eva Cassidy, and Janis Joplin. Her rich and polished vocals talents have kept her in demand full time as a vocalist in International 5 star hotels for the past 10 years.

Her original material has also displayed natural evolutionary growth over time, thanks to her being an "unsigned artist," (& free from the artistic control that record companies tend to place on their artists.) An enormous internet audience follows Sallys' work, indicated by several hundreds of thousands of streams and downloads since 2000 at artistlaunch.com and mp3.com (with no promotion or marketing assistance at all,) and without the help of big budget production on her tracks. Sallys' original songs consistently offer a high level of musicianship, and deliver a potent mix of R&B jazzy grooves, pop sensibility, Folk, and Soul Blues vocal belting.

Her vocal/songwriting talents have been enhanced from working with Australia's' best musicians. Contributing musicians in Sally's' live performances and recordings have also worked with artists such as Barbara Streisand, Madonna, James Taylor, Frank Zappa, Vince Jones, Steve Vai, Alan Holdsworth, James Morrison, Dale Barlow, and The Baby Animals. Her career started as lead singer/songwriter for 7 piece original Pop/Funk/Groove band "Havoc in the ballroom" which performed regularly at Sydneys' premium jazz and blues venues. Her 2nd ever public performance was to a packed house at Sydneys' 'Harborside Brasserie, her 3rd ever was at "The Real Ale Cafe" (which also regularly featured world class artists such as Renee Geyer and James Morrison.)

To claim that Sally Cooper has a solid "Work ethic" would be a gross understatement. She has been performing full time with her duo, band and Trio "The Sally Cooper duo, band and Trio" for 4-7 nights of every week of the year since 1996 in 5 star venues across Sydney, Brisbane, and the Northern Territory of Australia, The South Pacific, Singapore, New Zealand, Thailand, Dubai, Tahiti, Bahrain, China, South Korea and India.

Press reviews:

Mike Ventarola, Director of "Hidden Sanctuary" mp3.com NMA promoter:

"The warmest dulcet tones I have heard in quite some time. This lady evokes passion around each note to tweak every last nuance of feeling from each lyric I am amazed she hasn't been signed yet! " "Take Sades' smoothness, Anita Bakers passion, stir gently, and you have another sensational song from this Australian chanteuse"
