“I firmly believe Ben Salter to be one of Australia’s best singers, and if I weren’t so goddamn competitive, one of its best songwriters as well.” – Tim Rogers (You Am I, The Temperance Union)

Ben Salter is one of Australia’s most highly regarded performers and songwriters and we at Gum Ball are fortunate enough to have him perform this year on our stages!

He is an accomplished artist in his own right. His debut solo album The Cat (2011) and follow up The Stars My Destination (2015) have established his penchant for eclectic, esoteric arrangements and sounds that take in elements of rock, pop, jazz, folk, country and beyond, whilst all maintaining a coherence and inimitable melodic style.

Salter continues to perform relentlessly across Australia and the world, both solo and with his band, and his captivating live performances have become quasi-legendary. We cannot wait to see him take the stage by storm at the Gum Ball.
