waiting for my whole life." - Cityzen

Bio

When Sky Salt play their fairy tale rock they almost make you believe in fairy tales, too. The quirky NY-based quartet has enchanted fans and critics alike with their Alice-in-Wonderland-on-Shrooms look and songs that will have you dancing around in your underwear.

Formed and led by the fiery-haired singer/fashion diva Xenia, the band’s highly theatrical live performance has been described as an “outrageous spectacle of neon stripes, dancing and whirling… fused with the infectious energy of a full-contact rock show”. A classically trained pianist, Xenia brings sparkling keyboard passages and wild outfits as she frolicks through Sky Salt’s effervescent sonic playground. Guitarist Mark A.D.’s gliding, wailing and rumbling fretwork adds surreal textures against the pulsing rhythm section of Max Foxman and D. Patrick.

Having toured venues and colleges across the US, Sky Salt is planning a European Spring 2005 Tour, prompted by exceptional record sales in the UK , Germany, and Holland.
