Ben Salter Announces New 'European Vacation' EP & National Tour Dates

 

Homegrown singer/songwriter Ben Salter (The Gin Club, Giants Of Science, The Wilson Pickers) returns to the local music scene with a freshly inked deal with ABC Music.  The new ‘European Vacation’ EP is set to be released on July 12, 2013. Salter will embark on a slew of national tour dates, kicking off in Toowoomba and continuing across six States and Territories through July.

The ‘European Vacation’ EP was born from a project that saw Salter traverse Europe for five months, collaborating with as many songwriters and artists as possible.

As sonically and thematically varied as its inception suggests; the ‘European Vacation’ EP flits between genres as steadily as Salter moved from country to country on his travels.

So the theme of the EP is the journey itself – roaming unexplored territory looking for inspiration and finding it in some unexpected places. With tracks embellished and polished at Nowhere Audio, a small studio in Brisbane’s West End, Salter cements himself as one of the country’s most gifted singer/songwriters.

“I firmly believe Ben Salter to be one of the world’s great singers, and if I weren’t so goddamn competitive, one of its great songwriters.” – Tim Rogers
