Nashville, TN – November 21st, 2013 – Trigger Hippy, a new creative collective of musicians, is excited to announce their debut EP.  The powerful, soul-infused rock and roll band was founded by Black Crowes drummer Steve Gorman, and features twin lead vocals from multi-platinum recording artist Joan Osborne and singer-songwriter Jackie Greene who also plays guitar and keyboards.  Rounding out the group are lead guitarist Tom Bukovac, who co-produced the EP with the band, and bassist Nick Govrik.
