Best known as a founding member of numerous well known Australian ensembles including The Gin Club, Giants of Science and The Wilson Pickers, Brisbane-based singer-songwriter Ben Salter has also been a solo performer in his own right for over ten years. He has played throughout Australia and Europe, where his striking vocal range and captivating lyricism have drawn comparisons to Neil Finn, Elliot Smith and Nick Drake.

Whilst many of his solo compositions to date have been gifted to The Gin Club, Salter has also been quietly accruing a collection of songs all of his own, and now, after ten years he is releasing his debut solo album "The Cat".
Recorded and produced with Gareth Liddiard (The Drones) and Robert F. Cranny (Sarah Blasko, 78 Saab) at Liddiard's rural studio in Havilah, Victoria, the album contains the most accomplished songs of Salter's career. A major departure from his work in all of his other projects, "The Cat" is a blend of avant-garde pop, folk and rock, at once familiar but also delightfully skewed.
