Based in Tasmania, Ben Salter has toured Australia and the world for nearly 20 years, both solo and as a member of The Wilson Pickers, The Gin Club, Giants of Science and Hownowmer. Regularly cited as having one of the best voices in the country, Ben’s performances highlight his storytelling, humour and sincerity, while his recordings experiment with a diversity of styles, from acoustic ballads to rock, folk and avant garde. His songs traverse convict life, suburban streets, video game galaxies, and indigenous poetry, with an idiosyncratic and literary style in the tradition of songwriters John Cale, Robert Wyatt and David Byrne. He counts among his collaborators some of the industry’s most respected names, such as Marlon Williams, Gareth Liddiard (The Drones, TFS), Mick Thomas (Weddings, Parties, Anything), Tim Rogers (The Bamboos, You Am I), Bernard Fanning (Powderfinger), and London-based producer Aaron Cupples (Spiritualized, Kirin J Callinan, The Drones).
