About Jon Salt:
Stage name Jon Salt, was born Jon-Michael Salter in the small city of Moines Belgium. Being raised in Maui and then settling in L.A and later on in his adult life, Seattle.The development of his unique style is the result of a lifetime of musical influence. Growing up, music was a part of his childhood and his parents exposed him to a wealth of music as a child. From Lena Horn to Stevie Wonder, all of which influenced his development. Dipping his toes in the harsh world of rap music at the inocent age of 11, he then decided that music was his passion. He would grow to perfect his calling.
His style now consists of lyrical witty charm with an aggressive edge. Names like Big Will Rosario DJ of the rap group Slaughter house was quoted with saying “Jon Salt reminds me of Hip-Hop, tells a story well and he would be the product of Kanye West & Eminem having a baby.” Kamaal Grey of the Roots was quoted saying “Jon Salt, is a breath of fresh air.” Zero Kazama of MTV’s Silent Library featured him on his blog found on http://www.zerokazama.com/ and stated that “Jon Salt makes me want to listen to hip hop”.
