As lead singer and songwriter of Ann Arbor, MI pop/rock quartet the Dirty Birds, Saltiel released his debut album How the Cause Became the Cure in 2009. After moving to Brooklyn, NY, he launched his solo career, releasing two interconnected full-length albums of lushly orchestrated, "magical realist" story-songs: The Light Within in 2013 and Out of Clay in 2018. His follow-up One More Revelation was a return to more conventional songwriting and contemporary folk-rock aesthetics. With his upcoming EP No Heroes, Saltiel channels the 2020 zeitgeist with emotional intelligence, skillful songwriting, and evocative production.
