Artist to Watch: Sales

by Isabel Nelson

 

Hailing from Orlando, Florida, Sales are a dreamy sounding, guitar-based duo consisting of Lauren Morgan and Jordan Shih. They recently played South by Southwest, the expansive music festival in Austin, Texas that features up-and-coming artists. On April 20th , 2016 they released their first album onto SoundCloud and Bandcamp. The 15-track album includes older releases such as “big sis” and “ivy” but also new and unique songs such as “trapped in a club” and “pope is a rockstar.”

Their album isn’t yet up on Spotify, but some of their older releases have been listened to over a million times on the streaming site. Things are looking up for Sales. Playing South by Southwest always seems to be a good sign for smaller artists, and with their their ethereal guitars and uniquely warm sound, I believe they will go far.

Currently the duo is on their 2016 tour through North America. They hit Phoenix on May 15th at The Rebel Lounge.

Watch them perform their song “chinese new year” live in a video series:
