When 'Daughter Of A Queen' was released last Friday April 28th it not only peaked at #4 on the iTunes Country Top Songs chart, was added to the 'Aussie Country' Apple Music playlist, Sally-Anne was also the top selling Australian artist of the day! To mark the single's release, a fitting celebration of live music, cocktails & royal fancy dress was held on Saturday night at Tamworth's The Press Basement Bar



With this new release, Sally-Anne Whitten honours her mother aka the queen of the family. ‘Daughter Of A Queen’ is about knowing who you are and where you come from. And most importantly, owning it and honouring it… even the parts that are possibly a little harder to love. Those parts are essential to who we are. The autobiographical track recognises life’s too precious to spend making yourself smaller or duller to make others comfortable.

The Tamworth singer-songwriter tell us, “My “Queen”, my mother, was known to be a sharp, funny, sassy woman who had absolutely no tolerance for BS. But she was also the kindest and most loving person you’d ever meet. I know I carry many of her traits (some are celebrated, and others get me in trouble sometimes) and it brings me immense comfort to catch myself speaking her words or seeing photos of myself with a look she used to have… reminds me that she’s never too far away. Every day I’m more like her and I couldn’t be happier about it”.

Tamworth singer-songwriter Sally-Anne Whitten has been recognised for her talents on her latest album “Burgundy Street” at the ICMAs – Indie Country Music Australia showcase and awards. 

Sally-Anne was awarded Most Popular Female Artist and Most Popular Independent Album for 2018’s “Burgundy Street”. Producer/husband Alwyn Aurisch received the Most Popular Producer gong for the album of the same name, validating the term ‘keeping it in the family’! This follow’s Alwyn’s 2015 induction into the Country Music Hands Of Fame. 

The award-winning album was inspired by a life-long dream visit to New Orleans in 2015. The album cover depicts the singer’s holiday digs - where she wrote some of the tracks and the place where she was inspired to cover Jon Cleary and Alan Toussaint songs. 

The album boasts collaborations with Sally-Anne’s favourite singers, songwriters and musicians including James Craswell aka Jimmy Craz, Rae Moody, Allison Forbes and Mick Pealing of Australian country-rock band Stars. 

A few days after receiving the awards, Sally-Anne has been able to share her thoughts, “I’m honoured to be recognised by peers and fans alike as an independent artist. It was a wonderful surprise and I’m delighted with these two awards. I made this album completely my own way by my own rules so it feels amazing to be recognised for following my own path. Thanks to the ICMA crew for helping recognise independent artists”. 

The ICMA showcase and awards are held annually at the Tamworth Country Music Festival.
