High Water 2 Due Out Later In 2019
Currently on tour in Japan, The Magpie Salute return to the U.S. later this week for another run of shows in support of their debut studio album HIGH WATER I (Eagle Rock Entertainment U.S.).
Classic Rock Magazine recently voted the album one of their Top 10 releases of 2018 and remarked: “Rich Robinson laid down a marker for The Magpie Salute with 2017’s mini-LP of covers and old Black Crowes tunes; a collection that suggested an organic, loose entity with bags of groove.  The band’s debut proper made good on its promise as Robinson and his trusted crew cut a swathe through Southern Blues, rootsy soul and crunching rock’n’roll.” 
Produced by Rich Robinson and recorded at Dark Horse Studios in Nashville, TN, the 12-song High Water I represents a musical union of swaggering rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling.  The band brings together the reunited definitive Black Crowes guitar duo of Rich Robinson and Marc Ford, bassist Sven Pipien (also from the Crowes), lead singer John Hogg (Hookah Brown, Moke),  drummer Joe Magistro and keyboardist Matt Slocum.
A second brand new studio album High Water II will be released in 2019. Details to come on that at a later date.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
