Bio

Albert Salt personifies eclecticism in music – seamlessly spanning genre and projects of distinct variation. His classical training and musical agility have seen him perform with the likes of Client Liaison, Kele, Boy & Bear, Jinja Safari, Safia and Julia Stone.

Hailing from Hamilton, country Victoria, Salt gained attention in 2011 following the release of his debut record Dearest Stranger. Lead single "Fear & Loathing" garnered support from triple j Unearthed, where he became a 2011 Unearthed High finalist before earning a slot at Parklife Festival. He followed his debut with a succession of EPs before the release of his sophomore album Wilson Street in 2015 and his 2017 single "Glass Plains" which featured Alex Lahey on sax.

In 2017, Salt joined Melbourne-based producer Flamingo Jones to form the tropical dance-duo Juno Disco. In 2019 they released their debut self-titled EP and toured nationally with Luke Million and LEISURE, before appearing at St Kilda Festival in 2020.

Salt was preparing to play the violin for Gordi at her Sydney Opera House album launch until travel restrictions upended his appearance. If his track record is anything to go - we should expect a plethora of musical offerings and unique performances alongside our countries most endeared in the years to come.

Such a beautiful track Albert, your arrangement really shines - I'm a total sucker for a strong piano melody!
