Bio

Albert Salt is a contemporary musician based in the inner suburbs of Melbourne. Praised for his 'innate ability to transcend' genres (AAABackstage, 2017), the classically trained Salt produces a cryptic, equivocal sound - giving full control of interpretation and classification to the listener.
Albert was a Triple J Unearthed High finalist in 2011 and performed in the Parklife Festival of the same year. He has toured with Client Liaison and supported a range of artists, including Kele, Boy & Bear, Jinja Safari, Harts, Safia, Cut off Your Hands, Owl Eyes and Julia Stone.
Salt has a unique approach to solo artistry, collaborating closely with lyricist Patrick Dower, drummer Lachie Bubb and artist Jacob Vuk  throughout the writing and performance process.
Albert's most recent release, 'Glass Plains', was met with critical acclaim - described as 'almost cinematic' (WildnFree), 'full of stark beauty' (Declan Byrne) and 'hysterically deep' in it's production (AAABackstage).

Albert Salt's latest single, 'Evaline', along with his previous releases, can be found on Spotify, Apple Music, Soundcloud and Bandcamp.

there's a bit more immediacy with this one. the foot was tapping and the head bobbing within the first minute.

Albert Salt, THE wonder man is back. The songwriting's got this sense of maturity about it. Love the plucking, piano and that sweet, sweet sound of violin. Striking.

He's back, and bringing a real mood here! Jazzy, slinky vibes, even a hint of D.D Dumbo? I'm vibing.
