About


Like an old country song but in the modern age

 

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.

 

Morgan Snow is an American singer songwriter living in the modern age who records his songs under the name Triggers & Slips. Triggers & Slips music is steeped in the psychology of relationships. Like so much country music that came before, his originates in personal mistakes and a stepped on heart. “Snow’s voice is pure soul,” with hints of familiarity, it is haunting and powerful and with no comparison to pinpoint. It is the one thing you won’t forget. Some of his songs hurt, some 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.
Morgan Snow performs as a solo singer-songwriter, but uses the name Triggers & Slips when accompanied by his band, which has been known to include Tommy Mortenson (upright bass, vocal), Greg Midgley (piano, organ, vocal), Page Mcginnis (Lead Guitar),  Eric Stoye (drums).  John Davis (guitar, lap steel, and vocal), Kate MacCleod (Violin).

"If You're even a little bit interested in hearing some very satisfying country and americana music, please check out Triggers & Slips. You won't regret it." James Orme (Slug Magazine)

 

Morgan Snow is like an old country song living in the modern age. His songs "hit you right in the gut." With a voice that has been described as "pure soul" with hints of familiarity, it is haunting and powerful and with no comparison to pinpoint. It is the one thing you won’t forget. Some of his songs hurt, some make you laugh at him or yourself, but what is shared from night to night is a connection, a new relationship waiting to be revisited and rekindled time and time again. 

Morgan Snow's life has played out like a morphed and twisted country song written in an alternate universe that took a hit of acid instead of just going to bed. His insights and experiences have been molded, and carved into his psyche like the western desert landscape he calls home. Where as most people know a good story is partly fact and mostly fiction, Morgan has lived the kind of life that doesn't need added fiction to interest you in his stories. Ask him sometime how he was able to be let off with a warning after having his Miranda rights read to him by a Missouri State Trooper the night he moved to Nashville. See if he will tell you about the time he hit a three run walk-off home run in his first game as a freshman in college long before he ever picked up an instrument. Or what it was like to spend a summer in prison talking to inmates everyday. Maybe he will tell you about his introduction to Owl Medicine, or the story of his Mormon ancestor Erastus who is the reason Snow calls Salt Lake City home, as well as the 6 generations before him. Go ahead ask him, or better yet listen. Listen for what he puts into his songs. Beacons of a life lived, lost, and reincarnated, and the search for eternal truths while doing his best not to take himself too seriously in the process.

His career in music has been anything but a straight line. He has evolved as a songwriter, a singer, a performer, and as a recording artist. Keep in mind he has only been writing and playing music since his late twenties. Left to his own devices he has created songs that don't rely on commercial success to drive his body of work. Instead he has relied on finding his own voice, and hasn't settled into any one style or genre to pull inspiration from. 

After moving to Nashville in late 2015, he became ill in the summer of 2016. After seven months doctors still couldn't pinpoint the cause or a cure for his severe throat infection which inevitably resulted in Snow having his tonsils removed later that winter, and with no real certainty that he would be able to sing again, especially with the power he was known for. After a year of recovering and moving back to his home city of Salt Lake, he is back in full force pursuing his music and is currently in the process of recording a new album due out in the Summer of 2019 with his band Triggers & Slips. He is also working on recording a solo acoustic album.

Morgan Snow has been a fixture in the Salt Lake City and Intermountain West music community for the past 10 years playing as a solo act and under the name Triggers & Slips opening for artists such as Sheryl Crow, Chris Robinson, Justin Townes Earle, Chris Isaak, Steve Miller Band, Patterson Hood, Richard Thompson, JP Harris, Elizabeth Cook, The White Buffalo, Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Whitey Morgan and the 78's, Wayne "The Train" Hancock, Scott H. Biram, Chuck Meade, Jamestown Revival, K. Phillips, Shooter Jennings, and Chatham County Line.

One of Triggers & Slips greatest strengths is Morgan Snow's ability to recruit some of the most talented musicians performing today to blend elements of Country, Honky Tonk, Americana, Folk, Blues, and Rock and Roll and isn't afraid to veer from genres. He has traveled to locations throughout the Intermountain West, and beyond. Morgan Snow is a veteran songwriter with a wide variety of experience, having played nightclubs, weddings, private events, festivals, and co-produced and recorded two albums, and is currently working on a third.
