The Endless Note

Sally Seltmann

Sally Seltmann (born 1975) is a Melbourne-based singer-songwriter.  Until 2009, she performed under the alias New Buffalo.

With her new full-length record, she sheds her former identity to offer her first album as Sally Seltmann.

After the stripped-back elegance of her previous works, Sally returns with an album titled ” Heart That’s Pounding” that resounds with confidence, megawatt melodies and energising joy.

“Dream About Changing” – Sally Seltmann

Key influences for the albums were songs like The Bangles’ Manic Monday and Carly Simon’s You’re So Vain. She also drew inspiration from the David Lynch classic Twin Peaks, and from the soulful live performances of Nina Simone.

Tracks like Dream About Changing and Harmony To My Heartbeat have a bounding life-force.

On The Borderline and Heart That’s Pounding have complex shades of darkness, hiding behind what first appears to be ordinary and everyday.

‘A confident new beginning.’

Ironic Friday Fun

“Nobody Knows You When You’re Down And Out” – Bessie Smith

Once I lived the life of a millionaire,
spending my money, I didn’t care
I carried my friends out for a good time,
buying bootleg liquor, champagne and wine

Then I began to fall so low,
I didn’t have a friend, and no place to go
So if I ever get my hand on a dollar again,
I’m gonna hold on to it till them eagle’s grin

Nobody knows you when you down and out
In my pocket not one penny,
and my friends I haven’t any
But If I ever get on my feet again,
then I’ll meet my long lost friend
It’s mighty strange, without a doubt
Nobody knows you when you down and out
I mean when you down and out

Mmmmm, when you’re down and out,
mmmmm, not one penny
And my friends I haven’t any,
mmmmm, well I felt so low
Nobody wants me round their door,
mmmmm, without a doubt,
No man can use you wen you down and out
I mean when you down and out
