About the Salt Lick Sessions:
The Salt Lick Sessions is a platform dedicated to highlighting diverse musical talent. It first launched in 2022 as a video series and YouTube channel created by the Salt Lick Incubator, a nonprofit that supports emerging talent.
The sessions take music fans on a nationwide discovery tour of over 50 artists a year. The intimate video portraits invite you directly into the artist’s realm through live performances and candid interviews hosted by the magnetic Beane [The Ellen DeGeneres Show; American Idol], who connects with each performer as a fellow artist.
The Salt Lick Sessions launched as a radio series in the fall of 2023 on WERS. Each hour offers portraits from the video series with even more music from the artists— from their influences to their favorite finds.
Follow Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band to Sammy Rae & The Friends; and Brittany Howard to Elizabeth Moen, an artist from small-town Iowa whose sense of self, fierce vocals, and bluesy guitars are captivating listeners across the country.
Come discover your new favorite artists!
