The Nature of Things

by The Flying Salvias

A collection of acoustic, original, Americana music with lyrics both fun and poignant, reinforced by swinging old-timey and hip Latin/New Orleans grooves; it is music to dance around the house with, or sit on the sofa and cry to.

Album Notes
The Flying Salvias have been called "Americana-kinda Alt Everything." Henry is well known for his expressive piano style, and impressive chops, and Kathleen's voice is pure and heartfelt.

Following on the heels of their first CD (Curious Bling, 2013), The Nature of Things blends blues, country, jazz and swing influences with shades of John Prine, Leonard Cohen, and Dan Hicks.

The Flying Salvias most frequently perform as a piano/vocal duo but these songs deserved to be dressed up, so they rampaged through their closets and came up with a stellar outfit: Joe Craven on fiddle and mandolin,Travis Jones on rhythm guitar, Mike Anderson on upright bass, and Russ Gold on drums and percussion. Kathleen's vocals move easily from playful to plaintive with a haunting, romantic tone. Henry's piano and accordion are right there with her, supplying his own signature style of lyrical unpredictability. Recorded by acoustic music specialist Cookie Marenco at OTR Studios, the result is an intimate, yet toe-tapping, look at the music of Henry and Kathleen Salvia. It is indeed music to dance around the house with or sit on the sofa and cry to.
