Sally Seltmann

Hey Daydreamer

When Sally Seltmann began writing for her album 'Hey Daydreamer' (Co-produced by Darren Seltmann of The Avalanches), she knew she wanted to create a collection of songs that express the full spectrum of human emotion. Songs that tell stories, combined with luscious soundscapes that wrap right around your heart and soul, Sally has created an album that makes you feel like you could completely lose yourself to the music. From album opener 'Hey Daydreamer', a circus-like waltz on longing to return home, through to the tender closing track 'States and Spaces', each song has its own cinematic quality, making the album as a whole a thrilling and emotional journey. "A dark fairytale for grown ups," is how Sally describes her song 'I Will Not Wear Your Wedding Ring', while 'Billy' tells the story of a woman lamenting the loss of her beloved man. In between there are moments such as 'The Small Hotel' with its hopeful mantra and gypsy-folk melodies, where Sally references the optimism and inner-strength that exists within the human psyche. Sally Seltmann's previous albums include the 2010 Australian Prize shortlisted album Heart That's Pounding, and two critically acclaimed albums as New Buffalo (The Last Beautiful Day, and Somewhere, Anywhere). Sally is also a member of Seeker Lover Keeper and is well-known for having co-written Feist's hit '1234'. Sally's songs have been covered by several artists, including Bon Iver.
