“Whenever we play her music on ABC radio, it garners an instant response: ‘Who was that singer?'”
Richard Glover, ABC Sydney

Based in country Victoria, Kimber has been quietly stealing hearts on Australia’s live music scene for the past eight years. It was in 2008 that she really found her niche by forming alt-country band Sal Kimber & The Rollin’ Wheel (with older sister Beth Kimber on keys and accordian, and long time friend Cat Leahy on drums). With a familiar, warm and expressive voice – sometimes yearning, sometimes sensual, always believable, Sal and her band were named by Rolling Stone Magazine as ‘Australiana alt-country at its finest’.

With consistent rural and national touring, Sal Kimber and the Rollin’ Wheel released their highly anticipated self-titled album in 2011, to warm acclaim. Produced by award winning producer Shane Omara’, the album received national and international radio play, featured on shows such as Packed to the Rafters, and amongst dongs received Rhythms Magazines ‘Readers choice album of the year’.

Originally hailing from the mountain valleys of rural Victoria, Sal Kimber grew up in a musical family, and discovered her passion for songwriting at an early age. Her unique style has captured a strong following and garnered awards including the Victorian Female Vocalist of the Year Award at the Victorian ∓ National Country Music Awards (2010) and the Apra Song of the Year at the Victoria ∓ National Country Music Awards (2012).

Inspiring both the tapping of toes and the tugging of heartsrings, Sal performs solo, duo and trio, but most comfortably and most frequnetly with her talented five piece band ‘The Rollin Wheel’. Most recently Sal has been a guest on SBS TV show Rockwiz, toured Canada and Nashville, and has supported the likes of Kasey Chambers and The Waifs.

Sal and her Wheels released their first single off their upcoming new album in June 2015, ‘Stumble in the Dark’, a haunting and authentic indie folk offering, the band sets to release their long anticipated full album in early 2016.
