Sally Street is one of Sydney's finest independent female singer/songwriters.   

In September 2012 was shortlisted for Best International Act in the Exposure Music Awards (UK), 2012.  Sally's funky pop single "Lexi" which she co-produced and co-wrote with her pianist Gerard Masters was second place in the pop category of the 2011 Great American Song Contest, Sally's original funky blues track  "Facebook Freak" was a finalist in the 2010 Great American Song Contest and "Balloons Are Blowing In The Air" which she also co-wrote with Gerard Masters  was also a finalist in the 2010 Australian Songwriting Competition.

Sally and her band have a unique indie jazzy pop sound all of their own, that evolved from the multicultural melting pot that is Sydney.  Sally's music is a product of growing up in an old jazz shack nestled in a mainstream rock-pop loving country with an emerging underground indie club scene.   

Sally returned with rave reviews from opening the Tangier Jazz Festival in Morocco "The delightful Australian Sally Street, was a hit at Castel Palace." reported Et-Tayeb Houdaifa in La Vie éco as part of his June 2009 review of the Tanjazz Festival, wowed audiences for 7 weeks as a headline act at the Venetian Casino in Macau China in 2008, opened the 2010 Sydney Multicultural Festival, 2011 Dubbo Jazz Festival, both the 2011 and 2012 Every Woman Festival (a celebration of International Women's Day), 2012 River Rhythms Concert Series at Sydney Olympic Park, 2012 Transformal at the Carrington Hotel Ballroom (Blue Mountains) to celebrate gender diversity, 2008 Kings Cross Festival, 2009 Newcastle Jazz Festival, and regularly mesmerises crowds with her magnetic performances at Sydney's iconic music venues including The Basement, The Vanguard, Slide, Star City Casino, Blue Beat Jazz Club, the Gold Coast Jazz and Blues Club in Queensland and on the club scene around her home country.

Sally's music is regularly aired across community and internet radio in Australia, the U.S. and Paris. "Sally's current single is a blues rock gem, "Tighter than Onion Rings", featuring solid guitar work by James Muller" reported The Manly Daily, 19 Feb 2010. "It's Mick Jagger's little sister" - Paris journalist Pascal Kober, 2 Feb 2010.

Sally's original songs have been featured on various independent compilation albums released in Australia, and her version of the latin jazz standard "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" was released in November 2011 by EMI on a compilation in Greece and Cyprus alongside her idols:   Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Eartha Kitt, Nancy Wilson and Dean Martin.  

"Imagine your ideal cocktail as a woman, tall, swellegant, with equal parts bubbly personality, stir in a quantity of voluptuosity, a smidgen of playfulness, shake until flirty and look out baby, this drink is gonna pack some punch! Well, that pretty much sums up Sydney's Sally Street: a chanteuse who is all platinum, classy and captivating and who has one of the best voices in this country". Koop Koooper, "Cocktail Nation - The Interviews", Nov 2011 "Street's brazen, often playfully funny sensuality is like a splash of ice water underneath a desert sun. Street was named the “It Girl" of the Australian jazz scene when she made her debut with "One Bite at the Cherry" in 2008. It's not difficult to see why; her voice, sliding in between a sex-kitten purr and a soulful croon, is what microphones were made for."
