SALLY MARETT

A passionate advocate for contemporary music of all styles, Sally Marett is a force of nature. Equally at home in jazz and soul settings, Sally has also gained recognition among pop circles under her moniker Maret. Hailing from the prestigious Western Australian Performing Arts Academy (WAPPA), her career spans two decades performing across Australia in a range of projects and ensembles.

Her smooth and resonate tone glides effortlessly over an impressive repertoire celebrating jazz, R&B, funk and gospel styles. In this quartet she joins forces with esteemed bassist and National Jazz Award winner Brendan Clarke, Greg Stott on guitar and Mark Sutton drums.

Sally been performing for over 20 years, starting her career professionally on the Channel 7 television program “Home & Away” at the age of 15. She appeared on the show as a regular character for 2 years before studying Theatre and Acting at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts (WAAPA) where she completed an Advanced Diploma of Performing Arts. During this time Sally continued building her love of music, and in 2004 she commenced a Bachelor of Contemporary Music (majoring in voice) at Southern Cross University in Lismore.

 

After graduating in 2006 Sally moved back to Sydney and began playing professionally on the live music scene, where she continues to thrive today. She regularly performs in a variety of different projects singing contemporary styles including Jazz, Soul, Funk, Hip Hop and Pop.

 

In 2010 she released an EP of her original music. She has been teaching since 2007 both privately and in the independent school system, and in 2010 she conducted a vocal workshop at Southern Cross University as part of their Women in Contemporary Music program. She is passionate about music and music education.
