About


Like an old country song 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.

Triggers & Slips music is steeped in the psychology of relationships. Like so much country music that came before, theirs originates in personal mistakes and a stepped on heart. 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.
Morgan Snow also performs frequently as a solo singer-songwriter

Although the sound of Triggers and Slips has evolved over the years one constant is fellow singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Davis, who splits time between Triggers & Slips and the phenomenal Michelle Moonshine & Co. Davis adds gritty harmonies, lap steel and lead guitar, but also takes over as lead singer on songs; Blue Smoke, and Benny (which Davis penned). Having two vocalists with strong songwriting and an ear to compliment one another adds something special and unique to the live performances of Triggers & Slips and the connection of Snow and Davis has been instrumental in the quality of both the Triggers & Slips’ self titled, and Buffalo vs. Train albums. It’s no wonder that bands like Uncle Tupelo, Alice in Chains, and Willie and Waylon are some of their major influences.

Triggers & Slips is; Morgan Snow (Vocal, Acoustic Guitar, Harmonica), John Davis (Vocal, Lap Steel, Dobro, Electric Guitar), Tommy Mortenson (upright bass, vocal), Greg Midgley (piano, organ, vocal), Page Mcginnis (Electric Guitar, Mandolin), Eric Stoye (drums).

Morgan Snow of Triggers and Slips 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. 

Joined by fellow singer songwriter and multi-instrumentalist John Davis (who splits time between Triggers & Slips and the phenomenal Michelle Moonshine & Co.). Davis adds gritty harmonies, but also takes over as lead singer on songs; Blue Smoke, and Benny (which Davis penned). Having two vocalists with strong songwriting and an ear to compliment one another adds something special and unique to the live performances of Triggers & Slips and the connection between Snow and Davis has been instrumental in the quality of both Triggers and Slips’ self titled, and Buffalo vs. Train albums. It’s no wonder that bands like Uncle Tupelo, Alice in Chains, and Willie and Waylon are some of their major influences.

Their career in music has been anything but a straight line. Snow has evolved as a songwriter, a singer, a performer, and as a recording artist. Left to their own devices they have created songs that don't rely on commercial success to drive their body of work. Instead Snow has relied on finding his own voice, and has found likeminded musicians to follow him in his pursuit of writing from the heart, and taking chances. Triggers & Slips blend elements of Country, Honky Tonk, Americana, Folk, Blues, and Rock and Roll and they aren’t afraid to veer from genres. They have traveled to locations throughout the Intermountain West, and beyond. They are currently working on a third album set to be released in the summer of 2019.

As a solo act and under the name Triggers & Slips, Morgan Snow has opened 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.
