Description

TRIGGER: TO INITIATE OR PRECIPITATE (A CHAIN OF EVENTS, SCIENTIFIC REACTION, PSYCHOLOGICAL PROCESS, ETC.)

SLIP: A MISTAKE IN JUDGMENT OR TO LOSE ONE'S FOOTING.

Triggers & Slips music is steeped in the psychology of relationships. Like so much great country music that came before, it originates in personal mistakes and a stepped on heart. While the music is a blend that’s not quite country and not quite rock n’ roll, fans of both types of music have come to love the sound. Led by singer-songwriter Morgan Snow, whose voice has been described as “pure soul,” with hints of familiarity, haunting and powerful with no comparison to pinpoint. It is the one thing you won’t forget. His songs will “hit you in the gut.” Some will hurt, some will make you laugh at him or yourself, but what is shared from night to night after the show is a connection, a new relationship waiting to be revisited and rekindled time and time again.

Another fixture of their sound is fellow singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Davis who splits time between Triggers & Slips and the phenomenal Michelle Moonshine. Davis adds gritty harmonies, but also takes over as a lead singer on original songs; Blue Smoke, and Benny. Having two vocalists with strong songwriting and an ear to compliment one another adds a little something special to the live performances of Triggers & Slips and their recordings. It’s no wonder that bands like Uncle Tupelo, Alice in Chains, and Willie and Waylon are some of their major influences.

Much like their hometown of Salt Lake City, Utah, the music of Triggers & Slips has continued to evolve. Snow continues to become a more refined singer, songwriter, performer, and recording artist. Left to their own devices they have recorded album without relying on the pressures of being a commercial success to drive this body of work. Instead, Snow has relied on finding his own voice, and assembling a team of likeminded musicians to follow him in his pursuit of writing from the heart, and taking chances. He's been known to blend elements of Country, Honky Tonk, Americana, Folk, Blues, and Rock and Roll and isn't afraid to veer from genres. 

Triggers & Slips will be releasing their second full length album titled "The Stranger" an 8 song record described as "Rock n' Roll with a Country Soul." They will be playing as a 6 piece band, which includes; Morgan Snow, John Davis, Tommy Mortenson, Greg Midgley, Page McGinnis, Eric Stoye and other special guests.
