TRUTH & SALVAGE CO. FORMED IN 2005, GROWING OUT of late-night jam sessions at Hotel Café in Hollywood, where singer and guitarist Tim Jones served as talent booker. they eventually captured the attention of Black Crowes lead singer Chris Robinson, who produced their self-titled debut album and picked Truth & Salvage Co. to open for the Crowes on tour last year. “If you keep on doing something long enough, the people are going to hear about it,” singer and guitarist Scott Kinnebrew says, “especially if it is awesome.” the group has no shortage of material, featuring among its ranks four lead singers and songwriters whose influences span the roots of rock and country. “choosing the songs we want to perform requires humility and gratitude,” Kinnebrew says of his band, whose members variously hail from georgia, louisiana, Indiana, Mississippi and Ohio. “But that’s easy, because we have known and worked with each other for a long time now. There is a lot of love between us.”
