Electric Son

Electric Son

 Cincinnati, Ohio, USA

We throw funk, blues, and alt rock, stir it up, zap it with high-voltage electricity, and out comes the original sound of Electric Son from Cincinnati.


Electric Son has been called a mashup of The Black Keys, G. Love, The Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Jimi Hendrix.  Their stanky grooves, catchy melodies, and strong tight songs have meaningful stories to tell.  Jim Salters' songwriting tells an autobiographical story of transformation: born in a rural trailer park to his Korean mother and Irish Army vet father, striving against adversity, and the journey through insecurities, triumph, love, loss, and fatherhood. 

Leslie Frimer adds soulful harmonies while Marcus Saskin (bass) and Matt Hiudt (drums) lay the funky foundation that creates a high-energy performance that has lit up festival stages, intimate venues, and supported talent like Blind Pilot, Joseph, Deep Sea Diver, and the Shook Twins.  

The band is currently working on its first studio EP, expected in 2019.
