Info for High Water I
The Magpie Salute is the continuing storyline of The Black Crowes with Rich Robinson, Marc Ford and Sven Pipien. A group that represents a musical union of swaggering rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling, it also marks a reunion of musicians whose paths twisted and turned right back to each other.
The Magpie Salute first took flight in 2016 when Robinson assembled the original ten‐piece incarnation for a now seminal Woodstock gig.
The group went on to sell out four consecutive nights at The Gramercy in January 2017. By the beginning of 2018, the band delivered a total of 77 seismic sets worldwide comprised of a 170‐song repertoire of covers, Crowes’ tunes, and solo material. Acclaim came from Guitar World, Relix, and more, while Rolling Stone summed it up succinctly as “Explosive.”
By the time they retreated to Dark Horse Studios in Nashville with Robinson in the producer’s chair, the vision crystallized with the six‐person lineup. “The core was really important and needed to shine as a strong six‐piece. It was great to build something new last year. Now, we’re working towards something as a tight unit.”
“We bashed out all of the framework on tour,” continues Ford. “When we got off the road, we focused and let it really shine.” The Magpie Salute are launching High Water I with “Send Me An Omen.”

The Magpie Salute
American rock collective the Magpie Salute were born out of a brief reunion between former members of the Black Crowes, but their undeniable chemistry led to a longer-term project. In 2016, Rich Robinson, former guitarist and co-founder of the Crowes, was asked to perform and record for the Woodstock Sessions project; having taken part as a solo act in 2014, Robinson decided to form a loose collective with former Black Crowes members Marc Ford (guitar), Sven Pipien (bass), and Eddie Harsch (keys). Although the sessions consisted mainly of covers, the long-standing chemistry of the musicians convinced them to pursue new material once the show was over. Unfortunately, in November of the same year, Harsch passed away at the age of 59. Robinson recruited drummer Joe Magistro, guitarist Nico Bereciartua, lead vocalists John Hogg and Charity White, and background singers Adrien Reju and Katrine Ottosen to fill out the lineup. The Magpie Salute were ready for their first proper live show in early 2017, and they performed at the Gramercy Theatre in New York.
An eponymous live album filled with cover versions appeared in June 2017 but the group's official debut, High Water I, was released in August in 2018. High Water I showcased original material and was designed as the first installment in a two-part album; the second volume appeared in October 2019.
