“We’ve come Full Circle And Then Some,” goes the chorus to the title track of Trigger Hippy’s sophomore album, and it’s the perfect description of the long road these experienced musicians have traveled to harness their collective roots – from country, Delta blues, R&B and gospel to Southern rock and funk. Trigger Hippy co-founders, former Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman and songwriter bassist Nick Govrik, believe the band’s sophomore album, on Turkey Grass Records distributed by Thirty Tigers, embodies the music and vision they’ve chased since the two met 15 years ago.
For Steve, working with Thirty Tigers is personally significant: it reunites Gorman with Thirty Tigers founder/owner David Macias. Over 30 years ago, Macias played a pivotal role in the development of first recording contract for The Black Crowes.
The new collection spotlights Trigger Hippy’s patented call-and-response duets and three-part vocal harmonies, with a stylistic range that encompasses traditional country plaints (“Strung Out on the Pain”), classic rockers (the title track), honking blues (“Dandelion”), a Basement Tapes-ish swamppop nod to the devastation of Katrina (“Goddamn Hurricane”), Dr. John-meets Allen Toussaint bayou grooves (“Long Lost Friend”) and even a psychedelic “trance/dirge raga” (“Born To Be Blue”).
BIRD DOG JUBILEE
Bird Dog Jubilee is a rock-n-roll collection of instrumentalists that blur the lines between structured songs and improvisational jams. While their roots run deep in Atlanta, their act is building up steam throughout Southeastern venues and festivals. Their chutzpah is epitomized by their ability to seamlessly meld tunes while encouraging impromptu collaborations with fellow musicians live on stage.
70s Rock, Gospel and Blues inspired, RARE BIRDS hail from Atlanta, Georgia!
