There's a young and vibrant music scene right here in Utah. From Provo to Ogden and beyond, bands are playing in house concerts, live venues and local record labels are making them available to the public. RadioWest brings some of the newest and the best bands into the studio to talk about and to play their music live.

Local Music: Salazar


A somber vibe echoes through the debut album of indie-folk band Salazar. It's the vibe of "saudade," a Portuguese idea that singer-songwriter Alexander Woods says can't be directly translated. It describes the deep longing you feel for somebody or something that’s going away and might not come back. Woods and the musicians of Salazar join us Thursday as we continue our series on Local Music. We'll talk to them about "saudade," about their music, and about the band of musician-friends known as Dirty Provo.

Salazar and fellow Dirty Provo band Bat Manors are playing on Saturday, June 13, at Velour Live Music Gallery in Provo. Doors at 8 P.M. DETAILS


Salazar is Landon Young (bass guitar), Kyle Hooper (keyboard/backing vocals), Mike Dixon (guitar/pedal steel guitar), Bret Meisenbach (drums), and Alexander Woods (vocals/guitar). The band's debut album, Saudade, was released in 2014.
