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. In a city that offers endless new sounds, New York-based band Swear & Shake's loyal fan base and earnest talent have driven them on tours across the US and into the focal point of fawning critics. The band's star seems to be continually on the rise, as they play premiere Manhattan and Brooklyn venues and release their fully-Kickstarter-funded LP, Maple Ridge, only a year after their formation.

With a background in education and music, and a passion and talent for writing for children from a child's perspective, Rick has been writing and performing for children for 30 years. Published in 1983, his first collection of songs, "Bubblegum" was followed in 1985 by "Alligator in the Elevator." The success of these early collections launched a full-time career of writing and performing for young audiences. As a family man with three children of his own, early inspirations came from home and children in the neighborhood. From school classrooms, gyms and auditoriums, concert venues large and small, parks, fairgrounds, campgrounds (and even a parade float!) Rick shares his songs, songs that delight in the joys of childhood. From school-age children and preschoolers to grownups who first heard the songs when they were kids, his audiences are all inclusive where generations enjoy the music together.
