My name is Salvatore Spinelli from Temecula, California. I am a husband, father, active lifestyle lover and musician.
Originally from New York, and spending my teen years in Florida, I moved out to Southern California in 1999 embark on a serious career in music. Being born into a family with entertainers blood spanning several generations, it wasn't long before music and entertainment found me. After my elementary years of growing up in a dance studio and sitting in on band rehearsals with my grandfather and uncle, I asked my parents for my first guitar at age 11 and it hasn't left me since.
The following years into young adulthood had me occupied with bands learning how to write, record and perform under the wing of some of the most successful and talented mentors in my reach.
After many years of recording, touring and studying music, I decided to take up teaching as well. My teaching focus is with voice technique, guitar, group instruction and music theory.
Currently I am a lead vocalist and guitarist for the band Midnight Satellites. I also perform in Master Splinter & The Shredders. Both bands are local to Temecula, California and actively record and perform locally and tour. For my other performance and recording history, please refer to the music gallery.
Currently signed with DOWNBOYS RECORDS for television/film music placement. I am available as well for session work, live performance and voice coaching.
