The four women who make up the Bay area- based group have some experience with improbable complexities and contradictions. Almost everything about their history is contrary to conventional wisdom. For one thing, they put their individual careers aside to start Blame Sally when they were in their late 30s and 40sthe age at which bands are traditionally supposed to break up and begin solo careers. For another, this is obviously an all-woman band"girl groups" usually being the novel province of youthful upstarts, not mature singer/songwriters. Splitting the frontperson status among each of the four members goes against the agreed-upon maxim (agreed upon by everyone but the Beatles, anyway) that every group needs a single strong focal point. And didn't they get the memo that women, in particular women in show biz, are supposed to be packing it in at this point, not making fresh introductions?
"With their decade plus of live performances and recordings, Blame Sally has established a legacy of song combining country, folk, rock, Celtic and strains of classical music, which has brought originality together with a roots sensibility and pop accessibility."
