A Cuban-American whose parents fled Castros Havana with him still in the womb, Walter Salas-Humara was raised bilingual just across the Florida Straits in Fort Lauderdale. College at University of Florida in Gainesville and a residency with the Vulgar Boatmen left him with a lifelong habit of Mudcrutch/Tom Petty-style crunchy guitar riffs. Chasing the punk prairie fire to New York just in time to sift through the ashes, he formed The Silos in 1985 with guitarist Bob Rupe and violinist Mary Rowell, plugging the main cable of American rock idiom into the jerry-rigged soundboard of Velvets-era feral experimentalism.
With this apocalyptic agrarianism safely encoded in his band's name, Salas-Humara moved on once that lineup had run its course. 2014 brought the release of a new Walter Salas-Humara solo album, Curve and Shake.
2016 brought the release of 2 albums. Work: Part One, an acoustic rendering of Walter's best songs written in the 80s, is the first in a series of acoustic albums defining Walter as a singer/songwriter. 2017 has seen the release of Work: Part Two, the continuation of the acoustic series produced by Rich Brotherton. Walter is currently working on an electric album of songs in both Spanish and English to be released in the Spring of 2018. He is already singing many of these songs on tour.
