The Song: Let Go

Let go is a song that I wrote while literally staring at someone after an open mic. I noticed that 2 of my guy friends were fighting over me, and it was kind of weird. It is about allowing things happen the way they are supposed to and not getting caught up in moments. A lot of the time I get caught up emotional issues and emotional what ifs.

The Bio

Band Location: Nashville, TN
Band Genre: Indie Pop, Pop Rock, Singer/Songwriter
With a Grammy consideration for Best Blues Album under her belt for “Don’t Lead Me On” on Travis Bowlin’s “Secundus”, opening for artists like Sublime at a 5,000 person venue, and more than 5,000 song credits to her name, Salina Solomon has established herself as a skillful songwriter and an entertaining storyteller. Her latest release, five-song EP 20/20 is a pop-laced flight of euphoria, bluntness and heartbreak, with a sound that can be described as Florence and the Machine meets Lady Gaga. The project’s broad style spectrum strongly highlights Salina’s range and various influences, and offers listeners an emotional experience that will make them want to jump around and dance, then fall to their knees and cry. On stage, Salina ignites the crowd with her energetic and quirky personality, while showcasing her powerhouse vocals and impressive guitar skills. Her talent and growing fanbase are taking her to venues across the country, where she performs to sold-out crowds. Since early 2015, she has played more than one hundred shows across the country, at locations ranging from the waterfronts of Texas to New York City’s Carnegie Hall, and even Nashville’s famous Listening Room.

Off stage, Salina lends her time to charities that support education, military veterans, and the community at large. Salina recently partnered with Magnet Schools of America to create high school scholarship funds in the memory of her grandmother. She was able to give (3) scholarships in April 2019. Currently, Salina is hosting a House Concert series called “What Is?!?!”, where she invites the local community to her home on a quarterly basis that focuses on a topic of interest through discussion and music. Examples are “What is Community?” and “What is Education?”
