‘I firmly believe Ben Salter to be one of Australia’s best singers, and if I weren’t so goddamn competitive, one of its best songwriters as well.’ —Tim Rogers (You Am I)
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 the follow up, European Vacation EP, was a diverse collection of collaborations that Ben Salter undertook whilst on a 5-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), Liam Finn, and Gareth Liddiard (The Drones), to name a few. His second full length album, The Stars My Destination, was released in May 2015 to rave reviews. It was the Double J Album of The Week and has been played heavily on radio stations across the country.
Ben continues to perform relentlessly across Australia both solo and with a band, and his captivating live performances are not to be missed.
