Albert Salt is one of Australia's most promising and unique young artists. Never before has such a young musician been able to bring together the influences of Alternative Rock, Electro/Acoustic and Jazz on such a successful scale.
Beginning in 2009, after over a decade of classical music, Albert embarked on this musical venture with the assistance of lyricist Patrick Dower. Albert's style has developed greatly over this short period of time, to the point of complete individuality.
After releasing his debut album 'Dearest Stranger' in May last year, Albert was a Triple J Unearthed High Finalist, which was just a precursor to playing at Parklife, and then supporting such bands as Boy and Bear, Jinja Safari, Cut off your hands, Owl Eyes, and forthcoming (June 12th at The Toff) Julia Stone.
Having just released his new single 'Positive,' a more up-beat reworking of his unique blend of rhythmic rock and electronic music, Albert Salt is kicking of a residency at The Toff In Town by launching his new EP, 'Words of Reason' on June 5th.
Albert will be joined at the EP launch by fellow Unearthed High Finalists, The McQueens, who have just released their new EP, 'Fitzroy', as well as the Melbourne gems Animaux. This combination of vastly different genres, coupled with Albert's unique and intoxicating music, is going to prove to be a night of musical revelation, refreshment, and an excitement, which will captivate you and hold its place in your memory. With the addition of local bands supporting, this is going to play a big role in the developing Melbourne music scene.
