Self deemed “coral reef rock”, Summer Salt delivers a retro blend of bossa nova and 60’s oldies pop. Growing up in Dallas, TX, Matt Terry (vocals and guitar), Phil Baier (bass), and Eugene Chung (drums) started the band in high school, then reunited in 2013 after moving to Austin, TX.
Since then, Summer Salt has released 3 EP’s: Driving to Hawaii, Going Native and So Polite, gaining a cult following through touring and a personable internet presence. All three EP’s have sold out their vinyl, cassette and CD releases.
Following a handful of tours in 2016 and 2017, Summer Salt added a 4th member, MJ Tirabassi (formerly The Walters), and are currently working on a new album for 2018.
