Salem performs Todd Anders Johnson’s socially-conscious compositions blending hip-hop, jazz and neo-soul.The band has traveled with Risan Project tours which include concerts, ski and snowboard film premiers, avalanche awareness videos and partners in the outdoor and cannabis industries. Salem has played at the biggest ski and snowboard events in North America like EXPN’s Winter X 12 Games, the 48 Straight King of the Mountain in Sun Valley, the US Freeskiing Open, The US Snowboarding Grand Prix, the US Snowboarding VISA Cup, the Canadian Freeskiing Championships, the Breckenridge Spring Massive, the Keystone River Run Rocks and the Northface Masters of Snowboarding. In 2015, Salem performed at the Dixie Elixirs Secret Society of Budtenders Party and the Native Roots Colorado Springs grand opening party. In the winter-spring season of 2015-2106, Salem performed at over 30 multi-media events produced by The Risan Project throughout Colorado and Alaska with outdoor and cannabis industry partners. Salem has performed nationally alongside acts such as Keller Williams, Rose Hill Drive, Pato Banton, De La Soul, Sweatshop Union, The Meters (PBS), Bone Thugs N Harmony, DJ Logic, Stanton Moore and Will Bernard, Hells Belles, Tab Benoit, Rebirth Brass Band, Steve Earle and Zilla. Salem music is featured in “Tailgate Alaska: The Movie”, the Teva Stand Up Paddling Educational DVD, Hiroyuki Yamada’s “End of the Line”, Warren Miller’s “Off the Grid”, the Winter X 12 Games After Party CD Compilation and the Bolder Boulder CD compilation. “Salem unites seemingly disparate topics: global peace and powder shots. Salem is as much at home in Warren Miller’s film Off the Grid as it is participating in Bono’s global ‘One Campaign.’ Blending jazz, funk, spoken word and some Afro-Cuban beats, it makes crowds dance and think.” Katy Niner, Jackson Hole News and Guide
