True Margrit takes piano-pop to new heights with their fifth release, THE JUGGLER’s PROGRESS. Equipped with a pack of thematic inspirations including Shakespeare, mountaineering, and evolutionary destiny, True Margrit fashions brainy musings into catchy, poptastic tunes.
Based in San Francisco, True Margrit is fronted by singer/ songwriter/ piano-player (and transplanted Knoxvillian) Margrit Eichler. True Margrit’s sound is fueled by Eichler’s husky/sweet alto, her aggressive piano-playing, her surreal & infectious tunes, and by the fleet-footed rhythm-section of Gary Hobish on bass and Andrew Bacon on drums. The act has undertaken a long string of nightclub, radio, television, and in-store engagements up and down the west coast --and most recently to and from Texas for SxSW (and other adventures).
THE JUGGLER’s PROGRESS also features bay area guest stars—including virtuoso violin by Gloria Justen (of the Philip Glass Ensemble), lush backing vocals by Pam Delgado, and deft guitar by Jeri Jones ( both of whom are in San Francisco buzz-band, Blame Sally).
True Margrit has released five recordings: PEUT-ETRE la FENETRE, SYMPATHETIC MAGIC, DECEPTIVELY TRUE, SEAWORTHY, and THE JUGGLER’s PROGRESS.
“…a piano-pop sound that would make Ben Folds jealous and blush with delight. Get this album now.”-J-sin, Smother.net
“Margrit Eichler: a writer of pop songs with a lofty, ambitious goal? Elucidation? Entertainment? Both, I'm sure. Set your CD device on play and prepare to be stunned with a song cycle that has no equal in these early days of 2010. Cherish the progress of this musical juggler. You too will wish you were the opposite man.”-Alan Haber, buhdge
