Sally Shapiro

Sally Shapiro is not this person's real name.  The only name we have to go on when speaking of Sally Shapiro is Johan Agebjörn, the songwriter and producer of this group.  This cute swedish face is part of a formula developed and perfected in the 80's, something like a situation Giorgio Moroder (u must watch this) might have dreamed up.  But don't take my word for it. Here's what the producer himself has to say: 

“I chose [the name] Sally Shapiro because we were inspired by artists like Valerie Dore and Katy Gray, who also had a team of producers and writers behind them using the name of a singer as the title for the project” (source)

Damn he makes the tracks, writes the songs and gets to name the group?  This sounds more like the 50's than the 80's!  But you know what?  It's working.  Check out her label Paper Bag Records as well. Oh, and if you want to buy stuff try here.
