About The Magpie Salute

The Magpie Salute are pleased to announce their debut studio album, HIGH WATER I, will be released on Friday, August 10, 2018, via Eagle Rock Entertainment (U.S.), Mascot Label Group (Europe/Australia/New Zealand) and Sony (Japan).

The band — Rich Robinson, Marc Ford, John Hogg, Sven Pipien, Matt Slocum and Joe Magistro — are launching HIGH WATER I with the first single, “Send Me An Omen,” in which the twang of a hummable riff roars under Hogg’s towering delivery before spiraling into an entrancing melody punctuated by gang harmonies and butter smooth solos. “’Send Me An Omen,’ to me, wraps up all of the elements of this band,” says Robinson. “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.” The track is available on all major streaming and download sites.

A lyric video for “Send Me An Omen” is out now and can be viewed here.

Produced by Rich Robinson and recorded at Dark Horse Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, the 12-song HIGH WATER I represents a musical union of swaggering rock ‘n’ roll, psychedelic blues, and campfire-worthy storytelling that first took flight in  2016 when Robinson assembled the band for a now seminal Woodstock gig. The group went on to sellout four consecutive nights at Gramercy Theatre in New York City in January 2017, chronicled with a historic Guitar Player cover featuring the two six-stringers. By the top of 2018, the band delivered a total of 77 seismic sets worldwide comprised of a 170-song repertoire of covers, Black Crowes’ tunes, and solo material. Acclaim came from Guitar WorldRelix, and more, while Rolling Stone summed it up succinctly as “Explosive.” A second new studio album, HIGH WATER II, will be released in 2019.

The Magpie Salute will hit the road this summer with a number of headlining shows and festival appearances along with shows alongside Govt. Mule, The Avett Brothers and Blackberry Smoke.



What Passengers Think

We’ve been on cruises before, but this one was so different and so much fun! Leave your dressy clothes at home. Pack your concert T-shirts and you’re good to go. The music is top notch and yes they still sound great!! I feel like it was a once in a lifetime experience (unless I go again).

Kris, Bucket List Kris, Bucket List

We were first time cruiser’s. Definitely the BEST vacation ever!!! Five of the most relaxing, stress free, days of a fun filled vacation. We cannot say enough… the ship was clean, well managed, and beautiful.. venues were excellent. Rock Legend’s did an excellent job with the line up…loved ALL the music we could see and the goodies with the Rock Legends Cruise were very well thought out. Thanks to everyone for the memories..hope we can do it again someday soon.
