Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside had already earned a serious reputation in Portland, OR when they caught their big break last year—two sold out shows with The Avett Brothers at The Crystal Ballroom. The roots superstars were so enamored with Ford’s sound that they asked her to return with them to North Carolina to open their annual New Year’s Eve blowout in Asheville.
“Her songs have that rare quality of somehow combining fun with emotional and artistic integrity,” Seth Avett, of The Avett Brothers, raved in an interview with The Oregonian. “Her voice is 100 percent her own, and she fills the room with it.”
Ford’s unique blend of rockabilly, punk, and jazz—which shines through gloriously on her forthcoming debut ‘Dirty Radio’ (5/23, Partisan)—has earned her fans in artists as disparate as The Decemberists, Mavis Staples and Thao & Mirah. See below for upcoming dates.

5/1 – Los Angeles, CA @ Troubadour
5/2 – Santa Barbara, CA @ Soho
5/3 – Oakland, CA @ The New Parish
5/5 – Vancouver, BC @ The Biltmore
