The Salty Caramels
With a suitcase bass drum, cast-iron skillet, heavy-gage chain and a musical saw as ingredients in their “musical gumbo”, you’d expect for the Salty Caramels to stand out, and that’s exactly what they do.
About The Salty Caramels:
Molly Winters, Angela Perley, and Bree Frick have been crafting tunes and streamlining their unique stage show for exactly one year, and although the band is young, listeners agree these girls have a sound that hearkens back to the days of the Andrews Sisters and the Carter Family- with a little bit of Rolling Stones thrown in for good measure. As Angela puts it, “we will woo you and kick your butt at the same time.”
The formation of the Salty Caramels was based around a summer of floating on a glassy quarry lake and afternoon jams in Columbus, Ohio. When the three musicians (who each have their own separate solo projects) realized their voices locked into three-part harmony like clockwork, a new band was born. They named the group after a signature flavor from Jeni’s, a Columbus-born gourmet ice cream shop based in the same neighborhood. “Just like the ice cream, we’re sweet, but we’ve got a salty bite,” says Bree Frick, bassist and drummer for the band.
In their short time together (the band celebrates their first anniversary this month), The Salty Caramels have played with some of the most popular and active musical groups in the folk/Americana/rock genre. In addition to performing in Asheville, North Carolina with Woody Pines, the trio has opened up for the Chris Robinson Brotherhood (formerly of the Black Crowes) and Lukas Nelson and the Promise of the Real. The Salties have made multiple radio and stage appearances, and have lent their tunes to Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams for promotional use.
