"How is it having four singers in the band?" is the question most asked of Truth & Salvage Co., often followed by "Where's the group from again?" Though answers often vary depending on who you ask, the fact is that there would not be a Truth & Salvage Company without four lead singers; the band would have never come to be. It is through the collaboration of their songwriting and the unique combination of their voices to which they owe their inception. Since the forging of this completely functional family-by-choice in 2007, their music has proven nothing but infectious. They quickly caught the attention of Chris Robinson (The Black Crowes), who signed the act to his Megaforce Records imprint Silver Arrow Records and produced the band's self titled 2010 debut. Before that record was even released, T&S was invited to support the The Black Crowes on tour for the better part of 2009, which greatly helped to spread their gospel. Rolling Stone magazine awarded their debut effort with a 3.5-star review, and USA Today touted the group as one of the top up-and-coming acts to see. Countless other shining critical reviews have been bestowed upon them as well as numerous TV appearances including PBS's Sun Studios Sessions and ABC's Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The music of Truth & Salvage Co. sits comfortably between two musical genres, country and rock & roll, and is appreciated by staunch lovers of both. Their performance at the 2010 Bonnaroo Festival was highly anticipated and well-received, and they are among a short list of groups that have been asked to perform country music's Stagecoach Festival two years in a row. Their live show is highly energetic and stacked with four-part harmonies, hot and tight. The singers effortlessly trade the role of "lead" throughout the set, keeping the show fresh and the listener dying to hear what's next. Other notable acts they have had the privilege to support are The Levon Helm Band, The Avett Brothers, Gov't Mule, the Steve Miller Band and Lynryd Skynryd, and can count sold-out shows at The Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, TN, Red Rocks Amphitheater in Colorado and multiple nights at the Fillmore in San Francisco as some of their most memorable.
Truth & Salvage Co. is Adam Grace (organ), Tim Jones (singer, rhythm guitar), Scott Kinnebrew (singer, lead guitar), Bill "Smitty" Smith (singer, drums), Walker Young (singer, piano), and new recruit Dean Moore (bass). While incessant touring ensures they reside in their white Ford van, dubbed "The Champion," as often as their newly adopted hometown of Nashville, the predominantly Southern and Midwestern musicians in Truth & Salvage are nonetheless thrilled to be headquartered in Middle America and can't wait to venture out in support of their long-awaited sophomore album once it's released in 2013.
