Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside‘s new record Untamed Beast is a visceral rock and roll romp. “Like a cross between “Ella Fitzgerald and Tom Waits” (Mashable) Sallie has established herself as one of the most powerful female voices in indie rock.” In 2011 Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside made their national television debut on David Letterman, were one of the most talked about new performers at Bonnaroo, the Newport Folk Fest and Bumbershoot, and were championed by Jack White and The Avett Brothers. Now the Americana Music & Art Festival in Florence, Colorado, will have Sallie and her talented band as the headliner on opening night, Aug. 23.
