Brooklyn-based songwriter Peter Salett is the kind of understated acoustic pop troubadour that just needs one good break to become the next Ron Sexsmith or David Grey. A contribution to the closing credits of "Wet Hot American Summer" helped, but Salett is still flying largely under-the-radar as he tours the country's coffee dives and beer-splattered floors. Official biography:Peter Salett's "After A While" (Dusty Shoes Music) is a bold departure from current trends in musical overproduction. The album's spare arrangements are as much a surprise as Salett's rich voice and his ability to translate emotional insight into song. Recorded in New York, Austin and Los Angeles, and produced by Craig Ross (Patty Griffin, Spoon) the album features longtime band members Don Piper, Bill Dobrow, Ed Portobello, and Joe McGinty, whose musical contributions have helped further develop Salett's signature style.Based in New York, Peter Salett creates music "rife with infectious pop melodies and sticky choruses" (Billboard Magazine). He has earned widespread recognition through independent releases, songs featured in several film soundtracks, his participation in four of the last six Sundance Film Festivals, and performing in support of artists such as David Gray, Rufus Wainwright, They Might Be Giants, Ron Sexsmith, John Wesley Harding and Wild Colonials.
