Erica “Psalt-E” Webber is a singer/songwriter who was born in Fort Hood Texas. When she was 4 years of age her family relocated to Rochester, NY where she would spend the next decade and a half. In her senior year of high school her family relocated again to Syracuse, NY where she currently resides. The name Psalt-E (pronounced “SALT-E”) is a play on words being that Psalt-E is a "psalmist whose name starts with an "E". The name also includes a deep spiritual influence coming from the scripture Matthew 5:13 which talks about being the salt of the earth. Psalt-e the artist celebrates her "psaltiness" as paying homage to God for preserving such a unique flavor that she almost gave away trying to fit into conformity of the standards of this world. Psalt-E found her true flavor and spends every day as a living testimony living this truth as transparently as possible.
Psalt-E's musical background includes classical training as she has studied with Patricia Alexander (mother of world-renowned opera singer Renee Fleming) at the Eastman school of music as well as a master class with counter tenor Darryl Taylor. Her mother, a keyboardist and anointed worship leader, also played a major role in the musical and spiritual side that Psalt-E possesses. She helped to instill a pure and true heart for intimate worship with God. Psalt-E has also been a part of several local ministries and groups including the gospel ensemble Jamel Jett and Breakthrough as well as Neo soul/R&B cover band Anomalous People. Her ability to participate in these different musical arenas prove Psalt-E to be a well-balanced vocalist who is familiar with many genres and styles. She credits some of her biggest musical influences to be Cece Winans, Tonéx and Christon Gray to name a few.
In October of 2016 Psalt-E released her very first single "don't count me out" #DCMO, the first single off of her upcoming debut album entitled "Altar Ego". Psalt-E's music can basically be described as what she likes to call "underdog music". Her sound looks to incorporate all of her music stylings into a message that promotes inclusion for all. Whether churched, de-churched, or unchurched. Saved, or unsaved, Psalt-E's music offers her spin on life's situations and offers genuine understanding as well as encouragement to the person that may be dealing with something or the person who is in a good place in life. Psalt-E hopes to inspire the world with her music and convey the beauty in loving yourself just the way you were created to be while knowing there is someone that will love you unconditionally no matter how imperfect you are. Be you, ‘cause if you aren’t, who will be?
