His debut solo album The Cat (2011) and follow up The Stars My Destination (2015) established his penchant for eclectic, esoteric arrangements and sounds that take in elements of folk, rock, pop, jazz, country and beyond, whilst maintaining a coherence and inimitable melodic style.
Salter 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), Gareth Liddiard (The Drones) and Marlon Williams, to name a few.
He has toured with acts including Cat Power, J Mascis, Gareth Liddiard, Counting Crows, Marlon Williams and Built To Spill.
Since the release of The Cat, Salter has toured tirelessly across Australia, throughout Europe, and most recently to Japan and New Zealand. His third album, Back Yourself, is due for release through ABC Music in September 2017.
