Breaking news: Sallie Ford has a new tattoo. It’s fancy! Ford found out recently her great-great grandmother was a tattooed lady in a circus back east. Is that exciting find what’s got her on such a tear? Hard to say.
Ford is in between labels, but she’s got the look of someone about to show the world exactly what that Camaro’s got under the hood. She’s heading a brand-new band, fresh out of the studio with material produced by Chris Funk. He slings guitar for the Decemberists, of course, but also has a Midas-touch, producing bands like Redfang, Langhorne Slim, and the Builders & the Butchers.
So this band of Sallie’s - it’s an all-lady line-up, with heavy hitters like Anita Lee Elliot, who used to be in Viva Voce. Anita is a seriously fabulous guitarist. But Sallie Ford told us Anita is not actually playing lead in this lineup. She also gave us some hints about the sound of the new band.
