Sally Seltmann is an award-winning Australian singer/song writer/producer. She is the co-writer of the song ‘1234’, performed by Feist, and a member of Seeker Lover Keeper with Sarah Blasko & Holly Throsby. Sally previously performed under the name New Buffalo.
Sally's fourth album Hey Daydreamer, her first on Lojinx, will be released on the 10th of March in Europe.
In 2012 Sally supported Grammy Award winning artist Bon Iver, in support of her album ‘Heart That’s Pounding’. Co-produced with Francois Tetaz (Gotye, Architecture in Helsinki), ‘Heart That’s Pounding’ has been recognised by many as Sally’s most accomplished work to date. The album was released in Australia, North America and Japan, and was short listed for the Australian Music Prize. Indie Rock Reviews described the album as “a perfect blend of intelligent lyrics, Seltmann’s gorgeous voice and some amazing instrumentation".
Previous recordings by Sally as New Buffalo include her debut EP ‘About Last Night’; which was released in Australia (through Modular) and the UK (through Heavenly). Her debut album ‘The Last Beautiful Day’ followed. Written, arranged and produced by Sally, the album featured performances from Beth Orton and Dirty Three’s Jim White. Her final album as New Buffalo, ‘Somewhere, anywhere.’ The album was written and recorded by Sally on a century-old piano in a studio set up inside a flower-flanked shed in her back yard.
In 2010 Sally collaborated with Holly Throsby and Sarah Blasko to create ‘Seeker Lover Keeper’. The trio released their self-titled album mid-2011. The album debuted at #3 on the Austrlian ARIA charts and is now available in the UK, Europe, Japan and North America.
Sally enjoys collaborating with other artists, and recently set up her ‘Alphabet Botanical’ side project, a venture where she plans to write and record songs with many different musicians.
