Bio, Credits & Endorsements

"Salaway's own music nods to the past while still pushing forward. A frequent face at world-class venues like BB King's Blues Club in Nashville, he writes melody-driven, wide-ranging songs, using his inspirations as a jumping off point for something new. He also records most of all those songs completely alone, a nod the one-man show he often performs live." -Andrew Leahey (Rolling Stone)
