TalkSafe Series 2 Episode 6: Sali Flaherty - Cactus City UK

The TalkSafe Podcast

05-08-2022 • 44 mins

Emma had the pleasure of welcoming Sali Flaherty in the studio today, the Co Founder of Cactus City, a recording studio providing safe spaces for women and gender minorities.

Sali discusses her past being a performer combined with her previous role as a Marketing Director that led her to set up Cactus with Vanessa Threadgold. As we get into how Sali is actually making tangible change she discusses that nasty edge to the industry she is working in and why she has overnight become a leader and a mentor to many of the aspiring singers within her studio, describing herself as a ‘momager.’

Salis' passion and drive to challenge toxic attitudes and pave a new way for the music industry is totally inspiring and one that Emma has had the privilege of watching grow over the last few years.
