EDITORS’ NOTES

Though Joan Osborne and Jackie Greene—two artists with successful solo careers—handle the vocals for this Nashville-based supergroup, it’s Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman who appears to be their guiding hand stylistically. This debut album sounds like it came directly from the early Black Crowes playbook. Top Nashville session guitarist Tom Bukovac reels off classic Southern rock licks (with a touch of British blues-rock) like he’s been saving them for this album. Tracks like “Turpentine,” “Tennessee Mud,” “Pocahontas,” and “Pretty Mess” (written by bassist Nick Govrik) represent a modern version of classic rock. Turn it up, dude.

About Trigger Hippy

A supergroup of sorts, Nashville-based Trigger Hippy grew out of a casual collaboration between Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, Black Crowes guitarist Audley Freed, and Nashville session bassist Nick Govrik. The group, with Widespread Panic guitarist Jimmy Herring on board, made its live debut in 2009 at the Cox Capitol Theatre in Macon, Georgia. Herring's tour commitments to Widespread Panic led to his exit from the band, and singer Joan Osborne and singer, songwriter, and Black Crowes guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Jackie Greene were called in, and when Freed departed the band in the spring of 2012, Will Kimbrough replaced him briefly, and first-call Nashville session guitarist Tom Bukovac rounded out the lineup that recorded the group's self-titled debut album, which was released by Rounder Records in 2014. Osborne and Greene gave Trigger Hippy a stunning set of vocalists, and the band's sturdy roots approach and R&B, soul, country, and Southern jam band mix of influences had them poised for a promising commercial and critical career. ~ Steve Leggett
