The Magpie Salute Announce Debut Studio Album
THE MAGPIE SALUTE are pleased to announce their debut studio album HIGH WATER I will be released on Friday, August 10th 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 will be available on all major streaming and download sites beginning this Friday, June 8th.
Ben Green – “Change Up”
Confident, controlled, and highly capable – 19 year old Ben Green shows his insightful lyricism and ultra-smooth sound on “Change Up.” Stocked full of vibes that expertly combine Rap/R&B, Ben’s debut single delivers a chilled-out experience that intensely examines what it takes to beat the odds, move past the haters, & overcome any obstacle that stands in his way.
“I can’t go into too many details as the stories in my songs involve real people but I wrote and produced ‘Medusa’ at a low moment” says Tom. “I’d come to the end of a very intense relationship but I was still very much attached to and controlled by the person. I was getting frequent memory waves of all the negative points of the relationship that would involuntary come out of me whenever I started recording. It was a painful time but this song—like a lot of my songs—came out of that confusion and that’s a good thing. Pain is my best inspiration.”

Produced by Don Dixon and engineered by Mitch Easter, “Mixed Reality” demonstrates that the timeless appeal of Gin Blossoms’ music has endured.
Chicago-based pop romantic artist, David Darrko, shares his debut solo release, Suffer Suburbia EP. Last week, PopMatters exclusively streamed the EP in full with praise, stating, “The four-song collection spotlights not only the Chicago’s love of pop and soul but his considerable abilities as a vocalist whose pure emotions come to the fore on each of these songs, including the single “Black Denim” and the opening, “Edge”, a song that thrives on subtle but dramatic stylistic turns while never losing its center.” EDM Sauce premiered lead single “Black Denim,” cheering, “The track builds throughout its 4-minute span with lush synths, thoughtful lyrics, and expansive production. Darrko showcases his true solo talent in this premiere and it is a taste of what to come on his debut EP.” Suffer Suburbia EP is out now on all DSPs.
