Don Salter


My road in life took a while to figure out.
I grew up in Los Angeles, California.
After high school, I moved to Arizona with my brother to help him open a sandwich shop.
I eventually decided to try my hand at commercial real estate and found that I was pretty good at it—I used the money I made in real estate to buy guitars and recording equipment.
I started writing songs and recruiting others to record with me as a hobby.
My real estate office closed during the recession and rather than try another office, I decided to try and make a career out of songwriting.
I employed the lead singer of a band I wrote music for and together we built up our recording studio.
The studio became bigger and more popular over time—now, The Saltmine Studio Oasis is the biggest recording studio in Arizona!
Keep following my journey
