Sallie Ford is a Portland icon, her music carries the attitude and feel of the city. All that makes it hard to believe she wasn’t born a local but moved here around ten years ago from North Carolina. Shortly after she came to Portland, she met Tyler Tornfelt, Ford Tennis and Jeff Munger and together they formed the Band Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside.
Once they came together, they hit the ground running releasing two records and an EP in their first three years as a band. Not only popular in Portland and the Pacific North West, Sallie Ford and the Sound Outside shared their vibrant and unique sound with fans all around the globe.
After some busy years on the road, the band decided they needed a break. The break turned out to be more than a temporary one, as each member started carving their own paths. It has been six years after their last record release and the band decided it was time to get back together to play a single show at Mississippi Studios. A great chance for a wonderful live experience for everyone enjoying the tunes they put out back then!
