Salvadore Liberto has been writing, recording and performing original music for more than 20 years. He’s released four studio albums and has played at many performing arts centers, theaters and colleges across the United States. I was first introduced to the music of the gifted musician as he performed at the Charles W. Eismann Center for Performing Arts in Richardson, Texas.
