Triggers & Slips
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.
Existing somewhere between country, folk, and roots rock, Triggers & Slips have been making music blurring the lines of genre for over a decade. Breaking these rules and proverbial boundaries has resulted in a fiercely-loyal following akin to other genre-benders like Lucero and Frank Turner in their hometown of Salt Lake City.
While the music is unabashedly honky-tonk in its origins – rife with pedal steel, twangy electric/acoustic guitar work, and lead singer/songwriter Morgan Snow’s country drawl that belies his roots as a sixth-generation Utah native – the songs themselves subvert classic country storylines of love, loss, and substance abuse by viewing them through a gritty, real-world lens. Snow has lived every line and every phrase within.
There's a lot of heartache in country music, and Triggers & Slips aren’t afraid to lean into those traditional themes in their songwriting. What sets them apart is their ability to find hope and resilience in their work, rather than a punchline (as so much modern country music does). It’s meant to be a light in the darkness. In fact, Snow credits his foray into songwriting and performing as the very thing that saved him from himself over a decade ago, and it remains the rock on which he leans — the band’s name itself being a reminder the constant struggles we all face as individuals.
Led by singer-songwriter Morgan Snow, whose voice has been described as ‰ÛÏpure soul,‰Û� with hints of familiarity, it is haunting and powerful and with no comparison to pinpoint. It is the one thing you won‰Ûªt forget. His songs will ‰ÛÏhit you in the gut.‰Û� 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.
They‰Ûªre in the process of recording their 3rd studio album.
