Salt of the Sound's new album!

SEK 27,200

We're Anita and Ben Tatlow. A bit about us...

The music we write has been described as "evocative", "reflective" and "beautiful" by various Christian music publications. Earlier this year, we won the "Best Music" award at The Attic Film Festival for the soundtrack to The Gospel Of Jon, and our music has been featured on BBC radio and Swedish TV. When not recording and producing music as Salt of the Sound, you can find us leading worship as part-time music directors of Immanuel International Church, Stockholm.

But back in 2013 things were very different... Living in London, we had steady jobs in teaching and marketing respectively, and were surrounded by a wonderful local church community... but something just didn't feel right. So, in a complete faith move, we gave up our stable jobs to pursue a life in music ministry. 

We felt a calling placed on our lives, and God had subtly been preparing us for this new direction change for many years.

Salt of the Sound: Free (2013)

Our music has evolved so much since we began, and we feel so fortunate to increasingly reach more people through new platforms with every release. 

Right now we’re hard at work on our second full-length album of brand new music. With your help, we can not only make this the best Salt of the Sound record yet, but also reach a whole load of people who wouldn’t otherwise have a chance to listen to this reflective Christian music.

Salt of the Sound: Even The Wind And The Waves Obey Him (2014)

Why Kickstarter? Well, we’re raising funds to cover the costs of...

  • getting the new album professionally mastered, 
  • all the upfront costs of CDs and other exciting merchandise, 
  • professional album artwork,
  • putting the music in front of tens of thousands of new listeners, including through the music platform NoiseTrade
  • and to cover Kickstarter fees (5-10%) 

We’re also super excited to be able to offer you a whole range of rewards and opportunities, including collaborating with us, home concerts, and much more!

Any money we raise above and beyond our goals will be ploughed right back into our music ministry.

Thank you so much for your support!
Anita & Ben

Salt of the Sound - Dwell Among Us (2015)

Risks and challenges

The album is well underway - we have nearly all of the music written and close to half of it recorded. We have a successful track record of releasing music independently, and there are at present no significant risks to the completion and release of the new album.
