Truth & Salvage Co. on

This LA-based band was mentored and produced by the legendary Chris Robinson of The Black Crowes, and their album has drawn early comparisons to the likes of The Eagles, Fleet Foxes and The Avett Brothers. Songs like "Pure Mountain Angel" receive standing ovations for its timeless melodies and sweet four part harmonies, while songs like "Call Back" reveal the band's diversity.

Watch "Call Back" video:

One track in particular contains a contribution from one of pop music's biggest new stars. Katy Perry contributed lyrics to the album track "Old Piano" will sleeping on a sofa.

Truth & Salvage Co. member Tim Jones comments:

"She was dating my friend, James Valentine, who plays guitar in Maroon 5. We were up at his house one night, and she was asleep. He had a piano there, and it was late. I started playing and working on a song. I just had: You've been playing me like an old piano/ all the notes out of key.

"Katy woke up and said, 'What's that you're playing?' I said I was working on a new song but all I have is You've been playing me like an old piano/ all the notes out of key. To that she responded: Singing the right words over the wrong melody. And went back to sleep ... She contributed those words."

"The show opened with a rousing set by Truth & Salvage Co. Their reputation as 'show stealers' (quoting friends who became fans after seeing the six-member band open for The Black Crowes last fall) proved true." - JAMBASE
