Ben Salter started out in Townsville, spent his formative music years in Brisbane before moving to Melbourne and ultimately settling in Tasmania, a seemingly endless southern migration. His music career, however, continues unabated and he’s just released his brand new fifth solo studio album Summer Of The Loud Birds.

An acclaimed songwriter and performer, Salter is also a founding member of The Wilson Pickers, The Gin Club and Giants of Science and has collaborated or performed with some of Australia’s best known artists including Tim Rogers, Mick Thomas, Liz Stringer, Gareth Liddiard, Marlon Williams, Bernard Fanning, Angie Hart and many many more. He’s certainly been keeping busy during the end times, releasing two new studio albums The Mythic Plane and Summer Of The Loud Birds plus a live album Live In Japan during the last 12 months alone.
