Bluesdoodles, listen to the single and thought Explosive. Opening with raw, loud guitar that leads into a swelling of rhythm from drums and bass. Then with a swirl of energy the singing Magpie joins the salute to Rock that rolls with verve and attitude. No wonder the four nights they played recently at Under The Bridge in London were a sell out and the music acclaimed full of Black Crowes and more. Now with Omission, no omissions here with this debut band original composition. Omission encapsulates the mood and sound that is shaping the band. which is also the new band’s sole original composition.
The band will be returning to play dates in Europe this summer before on embarking on a full US headline tour. Full list of dates here.
Who are The Magpie Salute?
Rich Robinson and Marc Ford will be former Crowes bassist Sven Pipien, drummer Joe Magistro and guitarist Nico Bereciartua. The group also boasts a fine cast of vocalists, including Robinson, Ford, lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke), former Crowes singer Charity White and background singers, Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen.
The new Album The Magpie Salute, release date 9th June 2017, produced by Crowes guitarist and co-founder Rich Robinson, the musically tight and expansive album recorded live-in-the-studio in front of an audience at Applehead Recording in Woodstock, New York, except for the brand-new studio track and single ‘Omission’.
The album carries special significance as it marks the last recorded work by Eddie Harsch, the late Black Crowes keyboardist whose signature sound and gentle soul are woven into The Magpie Salute.
There’s a musical freedom on the band’s debut album, reflecting the musicians’ wide-ranging roots in the diverse selections of tracks, with half of the 10 songs coming in at over seven minutes in length.
The new album offers fresh takes of The Black Crowes’ ‘What Is Home’ and ‘Wiser Time’ and new interpretations of songs ‘Comin’ Home’ by Delaney and Bonnie, Bobby Hutcherson’s ‘Goin’ Down South’, War’s ‘War Drums’, Pink Floyd’s ‘Fearless’, The Faces’ ‘Glad and Sorry’, Bob Marley’s ‘Time Will Tell’, (which The Black Crowes covered on their second album), and the traditional song ‘Ain’t No More Cane’.
