Sally Barker gained thousands of new fans when she wowed the nation with her stunning performances as a Voice UK 2014 finalist.  The prime time BBC TV programme saw her consistently championed by her mentor, Sir Tom Jones.

Sally is a singer’s singer and a songwriter’s songwriter. You will remember the very first time you heard her sing for her voice is like no other. She has the ability to lift the words off the page and can move people to tears armed with that ‘bucket-full of soul’ voice.

As a singer, songwriter, guitarist and producer Sally has had a long and varied career in music. Labelled a folk artist for much of her successful career, Sally’s appeal stretches across many more musical genres. A much respected solo artist with half a dozen solo albums to her name, Sally is also celebrated for her live and studio work fronting all-female folk supergroup The Poozies. Sally captured hearts with her fabulous performances and duets with Tom Jones on The Voice. With a series of support slots for Tom coming up, she is certainly in demand.

Sally-Barker-and-Sir-Tom-JonesSir Tom told Sally “For me, it was just full of emotion.  It was just so beautiful that I couldn’t help myself.  You swept me off my feet”.

“Sally changes the atmosphere in a room when she sings” (BBC Radio 2’s Chris Evans).

“I have to say you sound amazing and angelic” (

“That was beautiful.  Sally makes the room stop.” (Kylie Minogue).

“Her enormous vocal range and stupendous control can relax or rouse at will – she coaxes her voice from that of a mild modern English rose to raw throated blues.” from a review at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival
