Sally Louise at the Virtual Little Cafe

Soprano Sally Louise was nearing the end of her first year as a master’s student at Eastman School of Music, pursuing a degree in vocal performance, when the coronavirus struck and she had a revelation - to figure out some other way to have a different, healthier relationship with music,

She released her first single, “Milky Blue,” on July 1, with only her voice, a classical guitar borrowed from her boyfriend, and the software program GarageBand. The result is a breezy, textured composition featuring a ready-made gamelan sample and found nature sounds. Her next single, “Bodily Exile” — releasing digitally on September 12 — bears a similar message of reconnecting with one’s authentic self and the freedom that it brings. “Call me renewed, call it desire/ Fetch me myself, I’ll start a fire,” she sings with easygoing confidence over an R&B groove and a simple four-chord progression.

And although opera is still an influence — along with Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, folk, R&B, and jazz — she won’t be pursuing it full-time as she once did, but rather she plans to release a full-length album by summer 2021.
