L.A. Salami for Interview Magazine

Over the course of three EPs and one
album L.A. Salami has built up a loyal
following around the world, with
notable support at both US & UK radio
from the likes of Bob Boilen and
Lauren Laverne. His debut album,
Dancing With Bad Grammar, was listed
in NPR’s Top Ten Albums of 2016.

His love for music began when he first
heard Bob Dylan on the radio,
subsequently leading him to explore
more blues and folk music and
inspiring him to write his own songs;
unfortunately, however, he could not
afford his own instrument and wasn't
introduced to one until he was given a
guitar for his 21st birthday.
