Sal Piamonte Band 2009

April 25, 2010

Artist: Sal Piamonte Band
Home: Ottawa
Release Title: Free Money
Genre: Rock
Date: 2009

In 2000-2003, Sal moved to Chatham, bought a house, & brought his former band, “Daisy Ella Mojo Crew” to live with him. He was brought here through his day job that was based in Chatham at the time. He recorded at Eyrespace Studios while he was in town, and the local rock station was featuring one of their singles, “Friends Don’t Come Around,” at the time. As it stands now, Sal would love to make it back to Chatham and perform with his new band. Maybe the upcoming tour may see a stop in Chatham. The new album is a top notch release from this band and is worth a listen for sure.

Notes:
 Sal Piamonte’s music was featured in promos for Animal Planet (Discovery Channel)’s Tiger Week.
 In fact, Sal also happens to be a successful psychological profiler for a provincial police force by day, and local rock star by night. Over the course of the last 10 years he has tested, interviewed and counseled everyone from prisoners, to autistic children, patients with brain damage and even paranoid schizophrenics.

But music is his first real, true love. This lifelong affair with music and the guitar began at age 5 on a trip with his mother to Australia. “I remember pretending to play the guitar on this plastic little guitar they had bought for me. When we returned to Canada, I asked my mom to buy me a real guitar and she wasted no time putting me in lessons.”

Tracks:
01.
One Night In Paradise
02. The Rogue
03. Who’s That Knockin’
04. 1000 Miles
05. Balance Of My Shame
06. Misery
07. Hard Luck Woman
08. Ain’t No Time
09. Free Money
10. Where Wild Horses Run
11. One Last Goodbye

Chatham Music Archive Review:
   It is not surprising that this is a very rich release from Sarah considering her passion and educated musical background. This release is fresh in that it blends the modern styles with retro vibes. It is experimental, but never crosses the line of becoming strange or lost. Simply put, it is a beautiful and complete work of art. I don’t want to use the words mature when describing music, but Sarah has grown as a musician quickly and is becoming an innovator of our scene.
    The best part of the CD is that her vocal styling and voice is original. When you hit play, you know it is Sarah singing. I am really curious and excited to hear what is next for her music. Keep your ear out.
   Sarah is very active in the live music scene and is always out there playing. Go see her live and look for the CD.
Shawn.

Official Bio:
   Drawing comparisons to both Billie Holiday and Feist, musician Sarah Hiltz is a paradoxical blend of old world and modernity. She’s been praised for her ability to tell a story through song, but isn’t afraid to take risks when she performs.

   While her tasteful and sometimes unexpected note choices have made Sarah an in demand session vocalist, she is now turning her focus onto her own collection of originals and is in pre-production for her first full-length release. In the meantime, Sarah continues to write and study piano, as well as perform regularly as one half of an acoustic duo.

   Sarah has been performing since childhood and composing for almost as long. At the age of thirteen, she won the Chatham-Kent Song Contest to write the official song of Chatham-Kent. Following the competition, she recorded her first independent record of all original tunes and released it in the fall of 2001. In 2004, Sarah’s writing was again recognized when she placed first at the Kiwanis Music festival in the original composition category.

   Later that year, Sarah moved to Toronto to study voice at the world-renowned Humber College Jazz Program. At the same time, Sarah was the vocalist for the Jef Kearns Four, a jazz quartet that performed in her hometown, Chatham. She went on to host a weekly jazz evening at the William Street Café in the fall of 2006, leading a quartet under her own name. In no time the evening grew into success, drawing people every Monday night to brave the Canadian cold in favour of warm vocals and hot coffee.
