Sali Hagan is a sensitive female singer/songwriter with an edge. Think Sarah McLaughlin meets Janis Joplin, in the vein of Fiona Apple or Nikka Costa, if you really need a comparison. She approaches each song with an aggressive spirit, pouring herself into each track with enthusiasm, all the while exploring a variety of styles and genres in her music.
Hagan opens the album with Destruction, where she growls with soulful stride. The loose structure of Love keeps the groove alive by avoiding the traps of a standard pop song, whereas Trace embraces a pop-friendly, Beatlesque feel. The centerpiece strings and piano lines of JW takes the album briefly into another direction, where Hagan shows her softer side. This is softness juxtaposed against the quirky, hard beats of The Lift.
It's a wide range of musical styles, but Hagan pulls it off with grace and focus. The end result is a suprisingly tight effort which showcases a heck of a lot of talent.

Noted for her thoughtful, yet edgy lyrics, Sali Hagan's strong, warm voice is evident as she commands the stage with presence. She has the musical roots that allow her to be a versatile and passionate performer. Sali's love of music was impacted while learning to play classical piano from her mother, a classical pianist turned rocker, and her symphony conducter father. Exposed to a diverse musical repertoire, Sali experienced life on the road at an early age, tagging along with her mom's band, "Raw Honey". After working as a dj at WKDF in Nashville, and McGathy Promotions in New York, Sali moved to Atlanta, started writing and hooked up with one of Atlanta's most amazing bands. It's no surprise that her experiences have left her with an eclectic taste in music. Her favorite artists include Stevie Wonder, Mothers Finest, Peter Gabriel, Rickie Lee Jones, Elvis Costello, Tracy Bonham and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
