"Live review"

"Chapel Hill's Salt to Bitters make languid folk that centers on the tattered-heart tantrums of singer Tony T. Raver." - The Independent


"Tony Raver's cathar-sick wails front Salt to Bitters' abrasive acoustic-charged punk." - Indyweek

"Salt to Bitters Live mention"

"Salt To Bitters has a sharp, slashing style and a shambling folk-punk attitude." - The Independent

"Salt to Bitters"

“Salt to Bitters is a band that seems to be dedicated to the practice of consuming, imbibing, vomiting, recovering from, apologizing for and celebrating alcohol.” - Wall Fly


Still working on that hot first release.



From lilt to lurch, from swagger to stagger, Salt To Bitters crashes its way across a bittersweet soundscape in fits and starts, tempering depravity with a tunefulness that could only have been born in the desperate hours between last call and first light. Tony T. Raver's moods range from wry to agonized, his alcohol-drenched musings on liquored-up love and the loss thereof emerging both poignant and raucous. Raver's eclectic assemblage of Chapel Hill music veterans follow his every move with a funereal kaleidoscope of plinking banjo, mournful violin ribbons, ominous Rhodes piano, drums that shamble and crash. Formed in 2008, Salt To Bitters has carved its niche as the Triangle's foremost purveyors of late-night despair, playing a host of live shows across North Carolina. In addition to Raver, the lineup includes Bryan Meekins, Jesse Watson, Josh Sokol, and Bryan Cabler. Multiple recording projects are slated to release in 2011 on Tiny Canvas Records and No More Fake Labels.
