Sally Anthony's future is bright and is One to Watch in the years to come. - Yahoo Music


A few weeks ago Sally had me dancing all over the place on Saturday night and telling you all about her spirit. Now she’s telling me “Baby you could be anything at all.” Alone with a guitar. “If you believe in love you can take on anything.” Sally has. On this album she rocked me, she hip-hopped me, and now she is ballading me with sincerity and conviction. Shoutout for I Could Be Great. - Eartaste


Individuals may not remember exactly where they remember the name Sally Anthony from, but if they saw a show with Natalie Merchant, Chris Isaak, James Taylor, Tom Petty, or Enrique Iglesias in the last few years, there is a chance that they have seen Sally Anthony perform. Anthony has had success on her own; “Vent” and “C’mon C’mon”, both off of her first full-length, rocketed up radio charts and ultimately helped push over 175,000 copies of that first album. “Goodbye” worked with much of the same success, shooting up to #9 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart.

However, where everything previously had painted Anthony as someone soft or quiet, what results in a track like “Goodbye” (which features Mo-Unique) is something that is much more close to a Pink or a Ashlee Simpson – slinky pop-infused, lightly-dusted with rock music. “So Long” is another track that fits into that general framework, even if the tempo achieved during that track is much slower during “Goodbye”. Sally Anthony seems to bring the style of an Avril Lavigne back into the realm of serious music, rather than being a mockery of anything that rock stands for. “Don’t Fall In Love (With Me”) is a cheerleader-chant type of track that links together Gwen Stefani’s “Bananas” with the style of R&B put forth by Destiny’s Child and Rihanna. Any one of the tracks on “Goodbye” could be put up with “U and Ur Hand”, “Girlfriend”, or any song similar to that ilk without individuals creating the slightest bit of complaint – Sally Anthony has the ability and catchy enough type of pop to make it to the next level. “Today Is Not Tomorrow” is another slower type of pop song, one that blends equal parts Christina Aguilera and Disney soundtrack.

The fact that “Today Is Not Tomorrow” is followed up by “Death by Me”, a much more rock-influenced track, shows that there is a lot of variation still to be had in pop music. While there are a number of up and coming individuals and acts that are trying to dethrone the current individuals in the pop world (Saving Jane, Jordin Sparks, etc), I feel that Sally Anthony will be able to push past these individuals and make a name of herself even more than she has already. Give the disc a go if you like pop with teeth. - Neufutur Magazine


Sally Anthony, the Midwest’s favorite anti-princess, has just released the second single “So Long” off her CD Goodbye. It’s a moving video, certainly a powerful message about her views of the good and bad about America and the forces affecting our daily lives. - musicbusinessblog.com


Singer/Songwriter Sally Anthony's new video for her single "So Long" takes a hard look at the past 8 years of the Bush presidency and the result isn't pretty.

The video which was released over the objection of her record label and management has received critical praise but has also subjected Anthony to multiple death threats and show cancellations.

The video has been viewed over 100,000 times alone this week on sites such as YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watchv=rYLDP835KCc), Perezhilton, Alternet, Myspace, Drudge Report, Raw Story, Feministiing and others.

Sally Anthony has sold over 200,000 albums and digital tracks and toured with James Taylor, Tom Petty, The Barenaked Ladies, Christina Aguilera, Chris Isaak, Shawn Mullins, Oasis and others. Her new album "Goodbye" was released on 10/23 and has spent 4 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart (peaking at #9) as well as hitting #16 on the iTunes chart of best selling pop albums. - Billboard PR


The media have been overrun lately with stories of YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, etc., and how the Internet has changed the way we communicate with others around the world. Singer-songwriter Sally Anthony has taken this theory to the next level, using the awesome power of the Internet to drive her incredible success. That surprising online success set the stage for the October 23 release of her new album, Goodbye (Gracie Productions, distributed through Imperial Records/EMI). In its first week, the album quickly shot to the Top 10 of the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, landing at number 9. Goodbye also landed at number 16 on the iTunes chart of best-selling pop albums.

With the sassiness of Christina Aguilera (with whom Anthony has toured) and the fierce independence of Pink, Avril Lavigne and Kelly Clarkson, Anthony has established a loyal base of fans that is 75% female, ages 16-35. Anthony has also toured with Barenaked Ladies, James Taylor, Tom Petty, Enrique Iglesias and many others. With the buzz growing on a daily basis, the time is now to experience Sally Anthony. Her new album, Goodbye, is the perfect path to that experience. - Billboard PR


Sally Anthony’s “Goodbye” is a record by an artist whose influences include such diverse performers as Ani DiFranco, Eminem and Madonna. Anthony mixes indie beats with resonant Emo melodies to form an absolutely unique sound.

The second track has a medieval tone to it that is fused with electronica-like sounds for an unparalleled opening. The guitar and drum play weave together, as Anthony emotes about wishing for her sweetheart to remain in her life. “You’re gonna gonna get…You have made me this way…I’ll let you go when I hope you stay…Goodbye.”

The third track has slow and precise guitar strumming along with Anthony’s pleasing harmonizing. On this song, she goes on about being out of the loop when it comes to her mate’s current whereabouts. “Can I ask you somethin’?…Cuz baby I know nothin’ about where you these days. Wonder where you are now? Where you lay your head…I remember what we had. I know that something is going on.”

On the fifth track, Anthony displays her playful side. She expounds such lyrics as, “A-W-E-S-O-M-E, Awesome. Awesome…I know I’m cute I know I’m fine you know I make you number one…Anywhere but here cuz if you out with me then make me feel like I’m your queen.”

“Goodbye,” by Sally Anthony, blends varying genres into one harmonious bevy of songs. The rhythms that are showcased are different on each track, making this an album that will appeal to lovers of dissimilar musical genres. Anthony’s timbre has a rock vibe that will stimulate listeners to hear the whole record to see just where it is headed. - Celebritycafe.com

Bio

The media have been overrun lately with stories of YouTube, MySpace, Facebook, etc., and how the Internet has changed the way we communicate with others around the world. Singer-songwriter Sally Anthony has taken this theory to the next level, using the power of the Internet to drive her incredible success. That online success set the stage for the October 23rd release of her new album, GOODBYE (Gracie Productions/EMI). In its first week, the album quickly shot to the Top 10 of the Billboard Heatseekers Chart, landing at number 9 and staying on the chart for 4 consecutive weeks. GOODBYE also landed at number 16 on the iTunes chart of best-selling pop albums and has sold over 20,000 copies since its’ release.

Anthony, has quickly gained a reputation as a strong, opinionated woman (quite literally, the “anti-princess”) who doesn’t mince words. The songs that make up GOODBYE, all of which were written or co-written by Anthony, give the phrase ‘girl power’ a whole new meaning: the defiant title track, “Goodbye,” featuring rapper Mo-Unique, lets her fans know she’s not afraid to confront a bad situation; power ballads like “Villain” and “So Long” show a strong young woman who is clearly in touch with her emotions; the youthful, crowd-chant-inducing “Don’t Fall In Love (With Me)” is a fun song that young fans will gravitate to quickly; while “Death of Me” is a rock-laced cry for freedom. Anthony understands the power of a passionately written pop song and uses that power to cut right to the chase of every emotional situation, much to the pleasure of her fast-growing fan base – she has an eTeam list of over 125,000 fans, as well as over 47,000 MySpace friends.

The title track single “Goodbye” has already sold 15,000 digital copies, reaching the Top 100 on the iTunes Pop Chart, and Top 10 at retailers Walmart.com and FYE Digital (where it climbed to #2 behind Rihanna’s smash “Umbrella”). The HOT track, which has been called “The Female National Anthem” by Anthony’s legion of female fans track also spent 3 weeks on the R&R CHR/Pop Top 40 Chart.

The album's 2nd single "So Long" is currently being played on over 125 radio stations across the country and has spent 2 weeks on the R&R CHR/Pop Top 40 Chart. In addition, the video for the single has received over 100,000 views and mass critical praise for Anthony’s harsh portrayal of the Bush administration and the last 8 years. The video has also subjected Anthony to multiple death threats.

In 2004, Anthony independently recorded and released her debut, the edgy rock album, VENT (she also co-wrote and co-produced). After two singles, “Vent” and “C’mon, C’mon” each spent more than ten weeks on the R&R CHR/Pop Top 40 Chart, she went on to sell over 175,000 albums and digital tracks and tour with Christina Aguilera, Barenaked Ladies, James Taylor, Oasis, The Black Crows, Chris Isaak, Enrique Iglesias, Tom Petty and others.

A brief example of Sally’s passion and dedication: on the last night of recording sessions for GOODBYE, she was in a serious car accident, totaling her 2001 Porsche 911. She was badly hurt, even blacking out for a few minutes and the police wanted to take her directly to the hospital. However, she knew she only had a few more hours of recording time so she went back to the studio to finish the heartfelt ballad “Villain,” the last song she recorded for the album.

With fierce independence, Anthony has established a loyal base of fans that is 75% female, ages 16-35. With the buzz growing on a daily basis, the time is now to experience Sally Anthony.
