Welsh Folk singer songwriter Sally Crosby has a unique twee aura around her music that pertains the same attitude as Kate Nash but the styled sensibility of more traditional female Folk vocalists. She’s mixed up her acoustic sound with the marmite of all musical instruments; the ukulele, personally ever since I heard Noah and the Whale I can’t get enough of the upbeat rhythms and harmonies that are exuded from the fragile percussion. The Welshpool based Indie singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist can not only express herself with 7 different instruments, but she can blow us all away by doing so.
Her debut track; I’m Not Ready is just one of the standout tracks from the stunning singer’s latest EP ‘All I Seem To Know Is How To Write Songs About You’ which was released in January 2018. Her breathy, fractured vocals have massive potential. She can already count herself up there with some of my favourite Welsh artists such as The Manic Street Preachers, El Goodo & Catatonia. Sally has already received airplay through BBC Radio 6 after they discovered her delectable sounds.

Acoustic indie folk-pop singer-songwriter Sally Crosby’s track ‘Dark Horse’ has every melodic moment and the track progresses gracefully from the gentle to the intense. The sound in the track is crisp, hypnotic and nostalgic. The sound in the track is fantastic, the hypnotic melody lines up to keep the listeners captivated and the skill and effort with which the artist has crafted the piece never fail to amaze. The intense instrumental piece of music creates an entire journey before the listeners. The rhythm and the rising intensity in the track is a somehow epic march towards something that is meaningful.

“A sweet guitar and sultry vocal punctuates Sally Crosby’s work; the sound of a singer songwriter coming of age and finding her niche sound to rise above the norm. There’s a distinct wisdom to Crosby’s lead song “First World”, available to stream below. Simple yet evocative lyrics are pulled to the forefront, with a whimsical violin dancing lightly over images of the moon and sun. The mid-Wales musician is no stranger to the British folk scene, counting Laura Marling and Noah and the Whale as her icons and omitting a noise similar to Josephine Foster and Gemma Hayes in her darker moments. Crosby began to make music at the beginning of the year but has quickly built up a good report, recording live sessions in her bedroom and playing gigs in – of all the places – Switzerland recently.
