Salme Dahlstrom The Phantom Electric Ghost Interview 2021 Edited
The Wall Street Journal dubbed musician Salme Dahlstrom a “savvy singer” and “music licensing queen” when, like Moby before her, she managed to license every track from her 2008 album The Acid Cowgirl Audio Trade to various corporations and television programs. At the time, Dahlstrom was not only just getting noticed, she was just getting started.
“C’mon Y’All”, one of catchiest numbers on an album of catchy numbers climbed Billboard’s Dance Chart and eventually received prominent placements in major ad campaigns for CoverGirl, Suave, and Kellogg’s that ran on primetime network television for months.
Trust us, you know this song!
While managing what inevitably became a highly successful licensing business, Dahlstrom continues to do the work that got her there, releasing music - funky, hooky and fun; the kind of songs that you hear once and then can't get out of your head.
After the success of The Acid Cowgirl Audio Trade Dahlstrom released a dance single, So Delicious, that made it all the way into Top10 on the Billboard Dance Chart and featured a remix by her hero Junior Vasquez. A 3 EP/album collection titled Pop Propaganda followed featuring titles such as Lux Punk and Pop Ur Heart Out. The albums garnered great reviews from the likes ofEntertainment Weeklywho called Dahlstrom's music "relentlessly hooky and ridiculously accessible" and many of the songs were successfully licensed to ad campaigns (eos lip balm, Saks 5th Avenue) TV shows and movies.
-“My commitment when it comes to creating music is and has always been to have fun and stir some s**t up, start a fire and then walk right through it”, Dahlstrom says slyly. “Because after all, if you don’t have fun then what do you have?”
