Blame Sally

Long-time local favorite, Blame Sally and their eclectic and undeniably original brand of folk pop returns to the JCC.


Blame Sally creates an eclectic and undeniably original brand of folk pop that plays on the “indie edges of Americana”. Emotionally charged, highly melodic and irresistibly compelling, this powerhouse quartet is made of four unique voices and musical backgrounds. All four women are exceptional songwriters, instrumentalists and vocalists.  Blame Sally has forged a cohesive sound through their beautiful intricate harmonies, and melodic rhythms that is instantly recognizable and compelling. 

With their decade plus of live performances and recordings, they have established a legacy of song combining country, folk, rock, Celtic and strains of classical music, which has “brought originality together with a roots sensibility and pop accessibility.”  This local folk-rock quartet with an attitude, combines acoustic textures with Americana harmonies and an independent spirit.

They are accomplished musicians on their own, and when they get together, the sum is even greater than its parts – they are their own entity.
- Rosalie Howarth, KFOG Radio

If you sense a slight incongruity in the title of Blame Sally’s Speeding Ticket and a Valentine, rest assured that it’s as purposeful as the life it describes is random. The album lifts its name from a line in the bridge of the hard-charging leadoff single, “Living Without You,” which describes a day—or maybe entire existence—that’s “sweet and sour at the same time/mink and a porcupine/ speeding ticket and a valentine.” Clearly, this is a band that knows its oxymorons. more...
