Ben Salter is one of Australia’s most highly regarded performers and songwriters. As well as being a founding member of Giants of Science, The Gin Club and the two time ARIA nominated Wilson Pickers, he is an accomplished artist in his own right.
His debut solo album The Cat established his penchant for the melodic mixed with the esoteric, whilst follow up EP European Vacation was a diverse collection of collaborations that Salter undertook whilst on a five month overseas writing mission.
He has collaborated, written and performed with artists as diverse as Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything), Tim Rogers (You Am I, The Temperance Union), Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger) and Gareth Liddiard (The Drones), to name a few.
“I firmly believe Ben Salter to be one of Australia’s best singers, and if I weren’t so god-damn competitive, one of its best songwriters as well.” – Tim Rogers
