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 the 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!
In tandem with her recording career, Salme maintains an active schedule of working on commercials, movie scores and TV shows, bringing the full force of her songwriting and producing talents to these wide ranging projects. Her production company Kontainer Music has a solid track record for producing catchy, cutting edge pop/electronic music and has grown into a highly successful licensing entity.
Last year Kontainer Music helped LG launch their new LG G3 phone with a global TV campaign featuring Salme’s song “Reality Check”, and “C’mon Y’All” has been repping Special K for the past three years in several worldwide campaigns. In the spring of 2015 Salme was asked by Fanta to re-work and update their famous “Wanta Fanta” song for their summer campaign.
