The Mighty Pines are a soul-inspired roots rock band influenced by the wide rivers and red-brick streets of St. Louis. Like the steady and strong trees from which they take their name, the band continues to grow in stature and sound, creating vast musical landscapes with their layered harmonies and thoughtfully crafted instrumentation. They generate a palpable vibe on their latest album, Late Last Night. Produced by Steve Berlin (Los Lobos), Late Last Night stretches out with a sonic spaciousness, sliding effortlessly from roots and folk ballads to rock and soul. It also showcases the band’s growth as songwriters, arrangers, singers, and musicians. The Mighty Pines are touring nationally and have supported renowned acts such as JJ Grey & Mofro, The Dead South, Railroad Earth, Martin Sexton, Fruition and Sam Bush.  


Singer/guitarist Neil Salsich reached national acclaim on Season 23 of NBC's The Voice. He earned a four chair turn on his blind audition, and was coached by Blake Shelton & Kelly Clarkson and highly praised by coaches Chance the Rapper, Niall Horan and Reba McEntire. 


The group is also an in demand studio band and recently recorded with Michael McDonald and Brian Owens. They are busy planning the third iteration of their homegrown festival, Pines Fest, taking place on August 24th, 2024 in Midtown St. Louis.
