Sallie Ford: New Songs From An Old Soulopbmusic.org

We first saw Sallie Ford & The Sound Outside a few years back, opening for The Avett Brothers at Portland's Crystal Ballroom. What caught our attention then — the group's fresh approach to old country and rockabilly styles, as well as its disarming stage presence — has only gotten stronger through touring and the release of the band's first record, Dirty Radio, in 2011.

With a new album on the way early next year — and some new, louder songs in the mix — we invited the group back to OPB for this studio performance. Here, Ford and her band give a preview of two songs from the new record, "Addicted" and "Party Kids."
