‘Brave’ – official video:
“unafraid to blend, develop and move folk forward while still retaining an abiding and healthy respect for tradition. And sometimes along the way taking the tradition to places it never thought to go. And that’s a prime-mover in the music of The Salts and their album ‘Brave’ … freedom and fearlessness to invent.” – Folk Words
“I cannot recommend this album strongly enough. I’ve been lucky enough to have seen these guys play many times, and was an admirer of their first album She Rises. This new record does exactly what it needs to do for the band – it steps them up again both musically and in the quality of the production – plus it crucially captures the raw power and enthusiasm that make The Salts so endearing. I hope this album serves them well” – Artree
