Fifteen Men - The Salts
The Salts who already have a reputation for breaking down the boundaries of Folk Music by performing their own unique brand of sea shanties and original songs, have teamed up with renowned Record Producer John Mitchell to create a new version of the well known song ‘Fifteen Men’. The single will be released on 11th October on Braccan Records during the band’s UK Tour.
The Salts recorded their version of Fifteen Men on their critically acclaimed Brave album and have performed it at their live shows where it has gone down so well that the band decided to approach producer John Mitchell and asked him if he would give it another lease of life. Although from a different world to The Salts, with his rock and prog credentials, John is a lover of all things seafaring so was only too willing to give it ago. The result is a fresh, exciting new take on a classic song.
‘We are always keen to take on new influences and John comes from the completely different world to us of Prog Rock. He has approached the sound in quite a different way, creating something new and contrasting to our album version of Fifteen Men.’ says Brian Doran from The Salts about this new version.
