Hey Daydreamer was recorded and produced in Seltmann’s home attic studio with her husband Darren Seltmann (The Avalanches), and features a number of guest musiciansincluding Bree van Reyk on percussion, Michel Rose on pedal steel, and many more. Sally recorded piano parts on her lounge room piano and contributed synth, organ, guitar, bass & percussion to the recordings.
Perhaps best known in the U.S. for co-writing Feist’s 2007 hit, “1234“, Seltmann has also toured with such artists as Jens Lekman, Stars, and Broken Social Scene. She is a member of Seeker Lover Keeper, while artists such as Bon Iver, have covered her songs.
