Greg Garrison- Bass
Erik Deutsch- Keys
Alwyn Robinson- Drums
Sockeye is the new project from Alwyn Robinson (drums/vocals), Greg Garrison (bass/vocals) and Erik Deutsch (keyboards/vocals), the exceptionally versatile rhythm section of legendary jam-grass band Leftover Salmon. Sockeye pulls together decades of experience playing as sidemen with a wide-ranging roster of artists like Chris Thile, Norah Jones, Lyle Lovett, Punch Brothers, Rachel Price and Bridget Kearney (Lake Street Dive), Shooter Jennings, Dave Douglas, Bill Frisell, Charlie Hunter, the Motet, Roosevelt Collier, Ron Miles and many others.
Effortlessly fusing jazz, Americana, free improvisation, rock and soul, Sockeye pushes boundaries and pulls at seams to create a unique spin on the piano trio tradition. Robinson’s modern, fluid and intense drumming fuels the creative fire for Deustch and his endless supply of organic keyboard sounds and unpredictable lines. Garrison’s firm support and melodic voice on the acoustic and electric basses serve to glue it all together into a potent gumbo of something classic and new at the same time. All three members bring their soulful vocals and original songs into the mix as well, serving to make Sockeye a not to be missed musical experience.
