Meet Backhand Sally and Learn About the Project!

First of all thank you for checking this Kickstarter project out! We are 100% independent artists and for so long we have been doing everything on our own dime, because we believe in our music and love sharing it with others. We are now at the very large crossroad of getting ready to promote and tour our debut album, No Instructions. We have finished writing and recording the album and are in final production and release mode. We have been doing it all on our own to this point but for the next stage in this album release we need a little help and that's where you come in. 

We love the idea of our album being not only ours but yours as well and your pledge gives you a little part of the project we are so proud of. The album is a collection of stories told in song about the nature of being human. Although we classify ourselves as an Americana Group, we are really more Multi-Genre and you will hear the influences of pop, R&B, soul, rock and more in the collection of songs. 

What's the money for you ask? Well, it's for all the little things that add up quickly. CD's, Vinyl Records, mailing the album to every radio station in the Nation, travel, merchandise, maybe a unicorn(JK, but still maybe) video production, promotional pictures, etc... 

Now for the who we are part:

 We are a Multi-Genre/ Americana group formed in 2013 by founding members Ginger Grace-(that's me) and Brock Hard(that's the guy at the top). Ginger's (again me) soulful, powerful voice combined with Brock's folk style and driving, sophisticated guitar create the distinct sound of Backhand Sally. Their music is an infused mix of pop, country, funk & blues blended together with memorable melodies and storytelling lyrics. They are inspired by artists like Fleetwood Mac, Sly & The Family Stone, Eric Clapton, Dolly Parton, The Beatles and more.  Along with their originals, they also play a large list of Top 40 favorites and always perform high energy, crowd engaging shows.  

Ginger(me again) has been singing and performing since she was 8 years old; her first performance was singing "Tomorrow" in her 3rd-grade talent show. Raising a family and other personal demands caused her to put her dreams of being a musician on hold until she was in her late 20s; but when she hit the road, she hit it running. She released her first EP in 2011 and toured with show band Vince Vance and The Valients as Venus Valienette for several years.  She has also performed with several bands in the DFW area.  Although Ginger has many musical influences that she pulls from, her voice is a distinct mix of bluesy, country, soul that she has developed as her own.  Co-founding Backhand Sally was a natural step in her music career and her true spirit can be seen when she takes the stage. Ginger also writes and owns the music and lifestyle blog  Ginger Grace Music

 Brock has been playing guitar and rocking audiences for over 15 years. His love for guitar started with his Grandfather's Sears & Roebuck acoustic guitar. After his Grandfather passed away, his Grandmother "loaned " that guitar to him and the rest is history. His first performance was a last minute entry in his high school talent show and he then went on to perform in various college bands while getting his degree in Engineering.  Brock brings his years of music theory and a wide range of musical influences and styles.  He has performed with the acclaimed R&B band Groove University and toured throughout the U.S. with several other bands before co-founding BS.  His picking and rhythm styles are by far some of the best and most intricate playing skills around, and it's that special playing style mixed with his and Ginger's vocals that define Backhand Sally. 


That's about it, if you have specific questions please shoot us an email and we will be glad to answer them! 

Risks and challenges

Well the biggest risk of any project is failure. There is always the chance that our album won't do as expected and we will have a project that nobody listens too. Considering the album has already been recorded, we are going to get it out there either way, but things will go much faster with the funding in place!
