Band featuring former Black Crowes members Rich Robinson, Sven Pipien and Marc Ford unleash the 2nd song, For The Wind.
Rich Robinson about the song: “For the wind is a song that took a long way around to come to fruition. I wrote it years ago, and it took the right band to do it justice. Now it has a great home with Magpie.”
John Hogg about the lyrics: “It’s like this person can see that every terrible thing in his world has been reversed, defeated and left behind. It’s not hopeful or expectant, it’s more than that…a full-on realisation described by one of the victors”
Pulled together by guitarist Rich Robinson, it continued a storyline he began in the Black Crowes with guitarist Marc Ford and bassist Sven Pipien. Meanwhile, vocalist John Hogg shared Hookah Brown with Robinson as keyboardist Matt Slocum and drummer Joe Magistro both joined him for solo records and tours over the years.
Now, these six individuals conjure magic on their full-length debut of original material, High Water I [Mascot/Eagle Rock], for August 10th 2018 with High Water II to come in 2019.
Baptized by High Water, these friends start anew.
“I want people to realize it’s something different and also a little familiar,” Robinson mentions. “I hope they can connect it to the records that defined their lives. Music is there to give us joy, perspective, and show angles we haven’t seen before. I appreciate it more than ever. It’s a gift.”
