About me and my music:

I was born in Glendale CA, started my musical journey at the age of 9 when I was taught to play guitar and sing by my father Bill Salas a musician who played the famous Los Angeles Sunset strip clubs in the 60’s along with his brother, Jerry Salas now the lead singer of the Latin Rock Group ” El Chicano “. My father influenced me with the great sounds of, Crosby Stills and Nash, Buffalo Springfield, Jimmy HendrixJames TaylorLoggins and MessinaThe BeatlesSteve Miller and more. I’m a big fan of today’s contemporary bands such as, U2OasisTom PettyMaroon 5TrainOingo BoingoDave MatthewsSara BareillesRob ThomasJohn MayerJack Johnson and others.

It’s hard for me to describe my music but I think of it as eclectic Pop, Rock a touch of the blues and dash of jazz.

My brother Jessie, a singer who was taken in by the famous Mitchell Boys Choir at the age of 10 and I started performing together at the age of 12 all around L.A. I began writing our own songs at 14. I moved to the Stockton California area in my late teens and performed there and nearby San Francisco at Colleges, and cafes. I got involved with musical theater for the first time and landed the lead role of Pippin. I went on to do a few more musicals acting and singing before I was asked to became a musical directer. I did and then moved back to LA.

My “Circus Life” CD project had always been on my mind to do but with cost of studios, producers, engineers etc. it just got put off until now. Learning to wear those hats, I dove in and co-produced it with my good friend David Britton, who was once signed with RCA records. Jerry Salas can be heard on a couple of tracks with his guitar and background vocals. What a journey this experience has been. My hat is off to all the people who work behind an artist.

I remain as passionate about music as I have always been. I was excited to see that Indie artists have a chance to be heard today in more ways than one thanks to CD Baby and other Internet venues.

I really hope my music touches you in some way! Peace to all, please keep the music and musicians alive by supporting their works. We do it for love and you! Music does make the world a better place, it’s a language everyone everywhere understands.
