Named after a small Missouri town, Salisbury is the project of St. Louis-based singer and songwriter Eric Lysaght, well-known as leader of rock band Neptune Crush. But Salisbury, and its new album "Life Is a Heartbreak," evokes the folk and country of the heartland. With gospel harmonies and a dreamy sense of nostalgia and narrative detail, the track "Down at the Fair" is a microcosm of the Salisbury world.
Jacob Detering wears a lot of different hats. His musical and technical skills allow him to fit into whatever role is necessary as he works to help artists create, complete and distribute their albums.
The brainchild of St. Louis singer and songwriter Eric Lysaght, Salisbury's music fits snugly between Wilco and Neil Young, if you make room for some classic rock hooks.
