True Margrit 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 in spring of 2010 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. Says Alan Haber of Pure POP Radio /buhdge.com: “True Margrit's third long player, following up the mastery of the knockout Seaworthy, is another propulsive, piano-as-attack-dog master-craft lesson in how to roll out the pop by investing the entire rainbow of emotion, peppered by a bubble of crusty ambivalence, in songs about foibles, follies and honest mistakes.”
