"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 Country) 

"It's his buoyant, enthusiastic melodies and the astute arrangements that serves as their accompaniment which creates the most formidable impression.-This journey down the road of life is as revelatory as the title implies."-Lee Zimmerman for No Depression Roots Music journal

 "With albums like 2019’s Americana Dreams, he shows the full range of his abilities, mixing a lifelong appreciation for the Beatles’ classic pop melodies with the southern-fried sounds of his adopted hometown. - Vents Magazine "https://ventsmagazine.com/2019/10/21/interview-john-salaway/ 

 

 "Salaway offers a gritty voice with a twangy, blues and pop underbelly that serves a righteous bridge from Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven to Tyler Childers." -Glide Magazine

"Some songs float along with a weightlessness, a gentle tangle and flow that sounds elevated, lightheaded and dreamy. John Salaway‘s ‘It’s All In Your Mind’ is one of those ones. With the sound of CSN deeply embedded in its DNA, the song rides linear and rhythmic, finger-picked acoustic guitar and some evocative strings. The Beatles are buried in there too. The icing on the cake is Salaway’s voice (and Bri Murphy’s) – that gentle, sensitive ache and yearning he invests in his register and tone. Lovely stuff." -Post to Wire Magazine https://posttowire.com/2019/11/13/new-music-john-salaway-its-all-in-your-mind/

“Googling the term “Beatlesque” someday should turn up the name of Nashville’s John Salaway. For now, you will just have to take my word that John’s new record, “Americana Dreams” is one that is worthy of this adjective denoting an honoring resemblance both to the lavish harmonies and pleasant pop sounds of The Beatles.” -Music City Mike  https://musiccitymike.net/2019/11/14/11-questions-to-a-nashville-musician-john-salaway/
