11/18/2005 - Saltlick

Saltlick is an original indie-rock band with a country twang from Eugene, Oregon. The band formed in 2000 by Steve Taddei following the demise of his seminal country/rock outfit, Hillbilly Holocaust. Saltlick's vocalist, Steve Taddei's compelling songwriting and unique voice are distinctive, backed up by three part harmonies creating a sound reminiscent of Bob Dylan and The Band with echoes of the 1980's Athens, GA scene. The jangly telecaster, creative key-work, and processed pedal steel sounds are grounded by the deep pockets a of a criminally able rhythm section. Saltlick patches it's influences of garage rock and traditional country into the quiltwork of America's cultural heritage while providing their audiences with first quality entertainment. Come see Saltlick live at CD WORLD and pick up a copy of their latest release 'A Face Only a Mother Could Love'!
