Atlas B Salvesen

Atlas B Salvesen is a folk singer at heart and a philosopher of his own head. Born and raised in the Midwestern field state of Iowa, USA there is a ghostly sense of isolation and alienation that permeates his music. He is a lyrically minded songwriter with a scattershot focus that sees him contemplate such divergent subjects as war, love, apocalypse, self-destruction and religion; sometimes in the same song.

However, an intimate nature remains present throughout his work; to him the master themes are personal and everything personal is born of these same themes. A melodic approach to music, an experimental attitude to production and an unwavering belief in the purity of expression are all features of Atlas B Salvesen’s work. He currently resides in Sydney, Australia where he persists.

After 2012’s Smoke Signals and the leading single Fruit Juice, 2014 will see Atlas B Salvesen pursue an ambitiously creative new concept for the Atlas show, taking a more surreal and narrative approach to songwriting. The project, titled The Pale King, will thematically examine music scenes and the stereotype of the tortured artist. A student of philosophy and literature, Alastair Cairns will act now as frontman and chief storyteller, placing himself at the crux of his tale.

Atlas B Salvesen joined Monday Records in 2012. His debut EP is out now.
