    "Sun Salt & Air," is Mellow Drunk band leader Leigh Gregory's latest full-length solo record released on limited edition LP.

    Recorded in Leigh's home studio during the pandemic all of the main tracks (guitar and vocals) were first laid down at home, then backing vocals, violin, cello, and drums were added by additional friends and musicians remotely due to the lockdown. San Francisco engineer/producer Damien Rasmussen pulled all the tracks together and mixed the record and Nikos Lavdas mastered the record for Tip Top Recordings. Based in San Francisco Leigh Gregory has opened for the likes of Supergrass, Luna, trashcan sinatras, The Church, The Clientele, The Morning After Girls, LILYSand Gorky's Zygotic Mynci as part of Mellow Drunk.

    "Sun Salt & Air" had its beginnings back in January 2020 when I was working on a handful of new demos. Suddenly COVID hit and the rest of the year became free to write and polish up the tunes and finish a fully realized record. It was quite inspiring to have plenty of free time to develop parts for the songs, plus being at home I could run into the home studio and spend as much time as I wanted trying out guitar sounds, vocal melodies, and lyrics as they came to mind. I wanted "Sun Salt & Air" to be a classic vinyl record with five individual songs per side that fit together seamlessly and flow from one song to the next. I really like the sequencing on the record in that it has longer songs with improvised endings, short songs, an instrumental, and an acoustic song without drums. What I've always loved about a ten song vinyl record is that it takes you on a little musical journey from side to side which by the end you're ready to flip over and listen again and again."
