Sally Joy Bouska releases three new LP records

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE –

 

The singer and songwriter of pop music on acoustic guitar known as Sally Joy Bouska has released three new full-length LPs, each belonging to her “Sally Sings” series of albums. Her three new records are titled, “Life’s Stories,” “Spiritual Sound” and “Young Christian Heart,” respectively. Each of them was published independently in August of 2013. A warm, friendly and uplifting trio of records, these newest additions to the “Sally Sings” series by Bouska represent a true, contemporary American style not often heard overseas, and a collection of Christian music that is in many ways more genuine than much which comes from the mainstream gospel music industry today.

 

Bouska’s sound is raw, warm and natural, her guitar forming a flowing accompaniment to her unadorned and lilting voice. Her tone evokes the best folk musicians of the 1960s and ’70s. Her songwriting style is not unlike that of Bobby Gentry (“Ode to Billie Joe”), and her clarion vocal timbre is reminiscent of Helen Reddy (“Angie Baby”). The result is a subtly textured sound so consistently good that it reminds the listener, it takes exactly one talented person to make great music. The lavish recording studios of the 21st century can do no better.

 

Bouska got her start in music as early as is possible. It has been a formative force in her character and personal history.

 

“I have sung with my family since I was a child,” she writes. “Then I went to school and got a degree in music and became a music teacher. Music has been a part of me for my entire life.”

She cites as main artistic influences many of the best American musicals, including “The Sound of Music,” “Cinderella,” “Wicked,” “Oklahoma,” and “Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.” However, she places particular emphasis on more traditional sources of musical inspiration.

 

“I have been influenced by the great classical composers,” she writes, “and singer/songwriters such as Simon and Garfunkel, in particular their song, ‘The Sound of Silence.’”

 

Bouska has written over 100 original songs and is still teaching. She frequently rewards classes who complete their work in a timely manner by sharing one of her songs.

 

The “Sally Sings” series by Sally Joy Bouska, including “Life’s Stories,” “Spiritual Sound” and “Young Christian Heart,” are available online worldwide.
