A Creative Presence
SAL is a Cork City based singer-songwriter with a difference. Her music explores the many colours in the spectrum of pop music, always showcasing her own versatility as an artist, whilst maintaining her pop sensibilities.
Originally hailing from County Kildare, SAL has spent her recent years in Cork, creating and performing all the time. After signing a management deal with London based Charlie B Management, SAL was unveiled at Liverpool Irish Festival 2021, where she showcased a set of brand new material with her band. “I love connecting with other people through songs that I’ve written...”, says SAL. “...the connection with the audience is amazing when you’re on stage."
Two of her singles, ‘Bullet In The Heart’, and ‘Everything’, both received an extremely warm welcome from radio and music media in Ireland and the UK. In the world of live music, SAL has covered a huge amount of ground, from gracing stages in some of Ireland’s most prestigious venues and festivals, to regular shows in the UK and Germany. Along the way, she has shared the stage with some amazing artists, such as Declan O’Rourke, Aimee, Scullion, Hermitage Green, Mick Flannery, The Stunning, Luka Bloom, Wyvern Lingo, and many more.
This year SAL underwent her successful cafe tour of Ireland, as well as releasing her fourth single 'Red Wine' which instantly went to Number #1 in the Irish iTunes Charts and 'Kerosene' which reached to Number #5 in the Irish iTunes Charts. Prior to this, SAL's third single, ‘Merry Go Round’ also reached to Number #1 in the Irish iTunes Charts, SAL has reached to two Number #1 singles in the space of five months.
2023 is already a big year for SAL, following her two consecutive Number #1 singles, she then did a national tour of Ireland supporting the brilliant TOUCAN, performing sold out shows in venues such as Theatre, Royal Waterford and Whelan's Dublin.
After connecting with new audiences at shows in London during the summer, the artist looks ahead to supporting Declan O’Rourke in Cork and Killarney on his upcoming acoustic tour and also touring with Niall McCabe across Ireland. With lots more up her sleeve, SAL is only getting started.
