Sally Minnear is the daughter of multi instrumentalist Kerry Minnear of the hugely respected and influential ʼ70ʼs progressive band Gentle Giant, Sally has been steeped in music throughout her life, with her brother and sister also being successful musicians.
Sally had a minor hit with the song “For You” aged just 18, before forming the acoustic duo ʻCreatures of Habitʼ as a vehicle for her own songs. After completing a music degree, during which time she played fiddle and sang in a popular traditional Irish band, Sally secured the featured vocalist role in Michael Flatleyʼs hugely successful dance spectacular ʻLord of the Danceʼ. Sally toured with the production for several years, before leaving to start a family.
Recently she has also contributed vocals for several dance music tracks and for the band Mistyʼs Big Adventure. Sally recorded some wonderful, ethereal vocal parts on Dave Bainbridgeʼs epic second solo release and is also the lead vocalist in his new band Celestial Fire.
