"Billy Thieme,"

“Sparse and powerful compositions…go see this band live. This is one you’ll regret having missed soon enough.” - Billy Thieme,

"The Mad Mackerel"

“When a song arrives that is described as “It’s the desert-rock murder ballad of a dancing girl and her two boyfriends at a strip club called Deja Vu Showgirls in Colorado Springs, CO, near where I grew up”, I cannot imagine a song I would want to hear more…sounds a bit like Nick Cave’s more twisted, sicker twin and that is a very good thing indeed.” - The Mad Mackerel

"KUT 90.5"

“(“SKULL”) is one potent piece of work, thanks especially to Devin James Fry’s searing vocals… paints an unsettling and fascinating portrait filled with ghosts, sex and UFOs. Highly recommended.” - Laurie Gallardo, KUT 90.5 FM, Austin, TX

"Quote from Wayne Kramer, guitarist of the MC5"

“Salesman is the most original band I’ve heard since Dirty Projectors.” - Wayne Kramer, guitarist of the MC5

"Mixtape Muse"

“Truly great, deep, and magical music … radiates through the encompassing dark of night.” - Quinn S


“As frontman of Austin ancestral desert rockers Salesman, Fry’s delivery is somewhere between animal and mineral, with songs so focused, varied, and raw as to defy classification except geographical: it’s desert music. Words and notes knot into a rune repeated on a cave wall, a creek bed, a crop circle. This is music steeped in ancient clarity and brought to life by uncompromising talent.”C. Dannatt, the Alaskan - C. Dannatt, the Alaskan

Sweethearter EP 2009



December 2011, we're recording the three EPs we'll release over the next year, and a soundtrack to the upcoming film "Uranium Drive-In," about how a mill that processes yellowcake for nuclear power is affecting the tiny town of Paradox, CO -- population 250.

Salesman formed in 2006 in southern Colorado. Later Devin James Fry met Guns and Patrick Patterson (Hotel Hotel) in Austin and after several tours John Houston Farmer (What Made Milwaukee Famous) and Daniel Jesse Pruitt (Lord Buffalo) joined us for the long haul.
