90’s rock musician to electronic music producer is a well-trodden path and for good reason; those rock hooks translate into bleeps and bloops so smoothly. Andrew Laverick is the latest to wander this yellow brick road with his new project, Salt House Lavish. He started out playing guitar and bass in bands in the 90’s, including stints in Filo Bedo, The Lazybirds and Boulevard Lounge to name a few. Eventually finding a love for the studio, it was a direction he would come to a full stop with.

As is often the case with veteran musicians, life has a nasty habit getting in the way. Laverick is not immune to this and an almost career fatal carpal/RSI issue paused proceedings. However, through sheer force of will, getting back to basics with frequenting open mic nights and talking to some up and coming young artists, Salt House Lavish was born.

Collaboration is a large part of his identity and the last year saw him work with both Thought Trumpet and To Kill a Nation. This current release, entitled performance cancelled, is a few pieces that tie together 2020’s output which is full of his combination of real world sound manipulation, synthesis and electronic production which, when all folded in, create a unique soundscape which is very much Salt House Lavish.
