What to Expect
Steve Salter amazes audiences with a combination technical ability, feel, and taste playing either the guitar or saxophone over high quality HD audio accompaniment tracks. With stylings in many genres and many well-loved melodies, Steve allows guests to experience many favorites and even original material without the need to focus on lyrical content.
A high quality portable PA allows Steve to accommodate a wide variety of venues with a simple setup.
Steve is also the lead guitarist for the HIgh Powered Performance Rock act "Cybil & The Beast". The band is likewise available for appropriate engagements.
Guitarist and composer Steve Salter delivers soaring melodic performances with a signature tone and style that's uniquely raw yet refined. Steve's debut solo album - including the title track "Gleaming" - is a collection of songs that could be better termed emotionally charged musical movements where the guitar becomes a voice telling a tale.
Steve Salter created the Gleaming record with the idea that the guitar can "sing" songs in its own voice, without the album becoming a shred-fest of technical skills against backing tracks. With so much music being defined and judged largely by lyrical content, Gleaming strips away words and their meanings to leave just the music as the emotional vehicle.
Steve Salter started as saxophonist in grade school. As a high school Junior, Steve toured the Eastern US and Europe with "America's Youth in Concert" as a first chair alto saxophonist. Included were performances at Carnegie Hall and Royal Albert Hall. He continued saxophone studies at the University level and then,at age 18, began playing the guitar, studying with Vincent Bredice.
Salter includes many guitar greats such as Joe Satriani and Steve Vai as influences, but his unique guitar style is also influenced by the early years of training and continued playing on the saxophone. He regularly performs as lead guitarist with CYBIL & THE BEAST, a high powered performance rock act in SE Michigan.
