Session Violinist & Arranger

Sally Potterton on SoundBetter

Classically trained violinist & electric violinist with experience in remote recording, improvising and arranging. Currently studying Music Production online with Point Blank Music School.

A versatile violinist and electrifying performer, Sally enjoys a varied live musical career playing violin around the world and recording music from her home studio.

Sally learnt to play the violin at age of three via Suzuki Violin Method. This early training encouraged her to learn to play music by ear without sheet music, and this notion opened up a whole world of musical creativity and a passion for improvisation. Classically trained throughout school, she won a host of musical awards both on a local and national scale. These included a Benslow Instrument Award for which she was loaned a fine Thomas Urquhart violin from 1680, as well as a BBC Fame Academy Bursary with which she used to purchase her first electric violin at the age of fifteen. Sally went on to read Music at Oxford University as an Exhibitioner before gaining a Distinction in her Masters in Violin Performance at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.

Sally is the face of English sparkling wine brand, Nyetimber’s premium product line,1086. She is also featured as the soloist on the soundtrack of this global ad campaign, known as ‘The Performance’. Sally is also featured as a soloist in the ad campaign for Norwich City FC's kit launch of 2020. Sally regularly works as a backing violinist on TV, and has performed live with Liam Gallagher for MTV Unplugged, FKA Twigs, and Don Broco to name a few.
