Bio

Albert Salt is a contemporary musician based in the inner suburbs of Melbourne. Hailing from Hamilton, in country Victoria, the classically trained violinist and pianist credits much of his musical development to the strong foundations laid in his childhood and exposure to new alternative music in his adolescence.

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 visual artist Jacob Vuk throughout the writing and performance process.

Albert recently released ‘Glass Plains’ – the first single off his upcoming EP – at The Toff in Town. The track, along with his previous releases, can be downloaded for free on his Band Camp profile: https://albertsalt.bandcamp.com/track/glass-plains

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

The mood is right and there's a bit of melodrama thrown in too. Think this is the sound of Albert showing us another aspect of his song craft.

Love the way this track unfurls itself. Wears it's influences on it's sleeve but damn, it does it well.
