PERFORMING SONGWRITER | MARCH, 2004
of independent films may already be familiar with New York
singer-songwriter Peter Salett – he’s participated
in four Sundance Film Festivals, and his songs have appeared
in The Maldonado Miracle (Salma Hayek’s directorial debut)
and Keeping The Faith (directed by and starring Ed Norton) among
others. With After A While, Salett once again shows his ability
to construct laid-back, wistful songs unhindered by overproduction.
by sparse piano, guitar and an unobtrusive rhythm section,
Salett’s voice is easy on the ears. His writing
is affecting and honest, and his delivery as understated and
bittersweet as the likes of Ron Sexsmith or David Gray.
