THE MAGPIE SALUTE is the rock band formed by former The Black Crowes guitarist Rich Robinson in front of a Woodstock Concert in 2016. The premise of collecting a ten-man band before the game quickly evolved into an entire tour. The band spent most of 2017 traveling and performed more than 77 concerts worldwide, including four sold-out evenings at The Gramercy in New York. In addition to Robinson, the band today consists of former Black Crowes members Marc Ford and Sven Pipien as well as the musicians Matt Slocum, Joe Magistro and John Hogg.

THE MAGPIE SALUTE has acquired a strong fan base and, besides its psychedelic blues rock, has become popular for its unique storytelling. On August 10, the debut album “High Water I” was released with “Send Me An Omen” as the first single. The album is produced by Rich Robinson and recorded in the Dark Horse Studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

“‘Send Me An Omen,’ to me, wraps up all of the elements of this band. There’s pure rock ‘n roll juxtaposed with these pop melodies sung with a melancholy that creates this beautiful balance of surreal dark and light”. – Rich Robinson

THE MAGPIE SALUTE has during the summer toured as a headline act and festival band around the world. In early August they performed a successful acoustic performance at Obaren, then as a trio in Stockholm. This fall they will finally return to Sweden, and then as a full band. See you at Debaser Strand on November 24th!
