Biography

-"One of the best dance albums I've heard in 2008. It should end up on some critic's end of year top 10 list" - Wildy's World (review TACAT CD)

"This song is hot and should be filling dancefloors everywhere real soon"
-Disco Cowboy, Sweet Muzik (Review "So Delicious")

With a sound and fearlessness that reminds you of the young Madonna and Lady Gaga, Salme's electronic dance music is for the dance floors around the world. Salme stormed onto the dance scene in 2008 with her super catchy song "C'mon Y'All", which climbed the Billboard Dance Chart and was prominently featured in ad campaigns for Juicy Couture and Suave.

With her latest release SO DELICIOUS, Salme is yet again heating up dance floors and rocking bodies around the world. The song, written & produced by Salme, also features glam boy Noa Tylo on vocals. It’s a sexually charged funky dance track will put the dance back in your pants.
The CD contains the extended dance mixes aimed at DJs and lovers of dance music alike, as well as the radio mixes to get the party started. The CD includes mixes by legendary DJ Junior Vasquez, Los Angeles-based powerhouse DJs Massi & De Leon, Martin Fry & David Knapp and Tribal Injection Vs. Roxwell from Portugal.

Born in the countryside of Sweden, Salme began studying classical music at the age of four. She spent her teenage years writing songs and performing with local bands. Salme’s professional career began when she signed a publishing deal with EMI. She spent countless hours in the EMI studio learning the craft of producing and experimenting with different genres of music. She traveled to the US in 1999 where she soon sparked a buzz in the music scene leading the NYC underground band aboyandagirl. With Salme center stage, an aboyandagirl show delivered live music with a passion and energy that matched the best. Within a year of its creation, aboyandagirl were signed to RuffLife/Warner Records.

After going solo in 2003 Salme released an EP version of “The Acid Cowgirl Audio Trade” in 2004 and another EP, “Bible Bombastik" in 2006.
In 2008 Salme released the critically acclaimed “The Acid Cowgirl Audio Trade” full-length album. The CD included “C’mon Y’All” which spent 6 weeks on the Billboard Dance Chart and received lots of praise from RPM radio and DJs around the world. The song was also featured in commercials for Juicy Couture and Suave. Every song off of “TACAT” got licensed (a first for a female artist); a feat that led the Wall Street Journal to crown Salme “The Licensing Queen”.

Salme is currently in the studio finishing up a new album.

Lyrics

Hello California

Written By: Salme Dahlstrom

I’ve been roaming these streets
Trying to find my beat
But I just can’t seem to get on track
And I’ve begun to think
This ain’t the place for me
I can’t pull a rabbit out of a hat
I will miss my friends
Here in N.Y.C.
But I gotta follow my heart
And it’s says get on a plane baby
Go to L.A.
And make a brand new start

Hello California here I come
Got my shades on
C’mon c’mon give some love
Go California
How you doin’ tonight
Hello California
Here I am
An east coast girl
With a big heart & big plans
Go California rock me
I feel I can take
Almost anything tonight

Check out California
With the surf and the sand
This place is going straight to my head
And all those pretty boys
I see everywhere
They make me never wanna go to bed
Hey baby meet me tonight
On Hollywood and Vine
I wanna rock this brand new world
I’ll never forget where I’m coming from
But tonight I wanna be a California girl

Hello California…

Little Helper

Written By: S. Dahlstrom

I would crawl across the floor you
Forget my manners if you asked me to
You make me wanna dress up in dirt
Bad boy, but you know I was like this way before
I met you, yeah it’s true

I know you wanna…
Meet me in the bathroom
One last time in the shower
One more time before my heart lies flat on the floor

If there’s something better baby
I don’t think they’ve found it yet
Your love is
Your love is
A superbad funky wicked little helper
Talking ‘bout my new sensation
Will not give this one away
Your love is
Your love is
A superbad funky wicked little helper

I’ve been straight but I’m about to bend
Can’t stop talking ’bout my new best friend
I said I wouldn’t but I did anyway
Here I go, stop me mama before I give it all away
Here’s what I say

You make me wanna
Spend it like a rock star, pop it like a pill
Get as high as that bird on my window sill

If there’s something better…

Little boys don't know why
They were born with dirty minds
Little girls don't understand
Why the like boys in rock and roll bands
It is in the air we breathe
In every book and magazine
It even has its own revolution
Now this is gonna blow your mind

It's all because god likes sex
He don't think of nothing else
He just loves to play his game
Again and again and again and again

Want to get it off your mind
You try to run you try to hide
But you just can't change your destination
It's a fever you can't shake
There ain't no cure no pills to take
You want to think it's all imagination
Now this is gonna blow your mind

It's all because god likes sex
He don't think of nothing else
He just loves to play his game
Again and again and again and again
It's all because his dirty mind
That he keeps you up all night
He just loves to play this game
Again and again and again and again

You try to run
You try to hide
But you can't get it off your mind

Thinking About It...Baby

Written By: Dahlstrom/Partridge

INFILTRATE ME, EDUCATE ME
TAKE TEN STEPS BACK 'CAUSE I'M NEARLY THERE
I CAN'T DENY IT, I WANT TO FLY IT
BUT LOVE IS A ROCKET SHIP AND I GOTTA FIND IT
AND I GOTTA RIDE IT
SO DON'T STOP NOW
DON'T STOP NOW

DRIVING IN MY CAR
(THINKING ABOUT IT BABY)
PLAYING MY GUITAR
(THINKING ABOUT IT BABY)
NOW I'VE FOUND WHAT REALLY MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND
BETWEEN THE GUTTER AND THE STARS
(THINKING ABOUT IT BABY)
EVERYWHERE YOU ARE
(THINKING ABOUT IT BABY)
NOW I'VE FOUND WHAT REALLY MAKES THE WORLD GO ROUND

DETONATE ME, COMPLICATE ME
TAKE TEN STEPS BACK 'CAUSE I'M NEARLY THERE
HYPNOTIZE ME, GET FEVER RISING
LOVE'S A MACHINE GUN AND I'M GONNA FIRE IT

YOU KNOW I THINK ABOUT IT ALL THE TIME
'CAUSE I CAN'T GET IT OFF MY MIND

DRIVING IN MY CAR…

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN START YOUR ENGINES
GET READY TO BURN FOR THE ROCK OF AGES
BUMP AND GRIND GET READY TO BITE IT
DON'T LAY BACK AND JUST TALK ABOUT IT
GET READY, GET READY, GET READY

DRIVING IN MY CAR…

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN
I THINK WE HAVE A WINNER
AND IT'S A PRETTY ONE
SO PUT YOUR TWO HANDS TOGETHER, YEAH

C'mon Y'All

Written By: Salme Dahlstrom

Ooh la-la
Sing ooh la-la-la-la
C’mon y’all

I’m coming fast I’m coming hard
Ready to blow up like a bomb
I’m in a rush I got a crush
And my bio-musical clock is ticke-ticke-tocking
Got something juicy for y’all
All you Billy boys in particular
So shake the fire down below
Don’t move too fast, don’t rock too slow

Ooh la-la
Sing ooh la-la-la-la
C’mon y’all
Ooh la-la
Sing ooh la-la-la-la
C’mon y’all

Gimme a break
C’mon c’mon let’s shake it
Bring it, ring it, sing it
Like you ain’t never gonna kick it

Ooh la-la
Sing ooh la-la-la-la
C’mon y’all
Ooh la-la
Sing ooh la-la-la-la
C’mon y’all

Wearing The Peace

Written By: Salme Dahlstrom

I am wearing the peace
Baby can’t you see
Love’s got a hold on me
I am wearing the peace
So why you wanna trip on me?

I am wearing the peace
Can’t just let it be
I want the world to see
How good it all could be
So come on can I get some release

Can I get an Amen?
C’mon c’mon c’mon can I get an
Can I get an Amen?

I am wearing the peace
Baby can’t you see
We can heal the streets
Before we all start to bleed
(Ooh yeah)
So c’mon will you come with me

I am wearing the peace
Holding on to the dream
Hallelujah amen
I’m gonna make it real
(Real as real)
So c’mon c’mon come sing with me

I am wearing the peace
Baby can’t you see
Just wearing the peace…

And so I pray
For a better day
Can you hear me say
I am wearing the peace
So baby tell me
Why you wanna trip on me?
