Product Notes

Deceptively True is a compilation of songs from the first two True Margrit releases (Peut-Etre La Fenetre and Sympathetic Magic), PLUS eleven previously unreleased tracks! This CD contains 20 songs (clocking in at just over 74 minutes) and includes a deluxe color 12-page booklet with full lyrics. ...But who or what is True Margrit? Based in San Francisco and fronted by singer/ songwriter/ piano-player/ bandleader Margrit Eichler, True Margrit has probably played near you (or will be playing at some point sometime soon) in a solo or band jaunt from NYC to Seattle to Los Angeles or beyond in nightclubs, cafes, theatres, radio & television stations, or sailboats. The band features a piano-driven sound, the kinetic bass and drum duo of Gary Hobish and Andrew Bacon, and Eichler's husky/sweet/ surreal vocals. What would you call it? Smart-art-poprock (with a tantalizing hint of danger)? Piano-based rootsy-pop with a suggestion of the cozy, smoke-filled chambers of retro? Part of a brave new phase of  post-post-modern-American pop music?  Listen up and decide for yourself. At any rate, the band is best known for it's hummable,  slightly surreal, uncategorizable tunes, it's world-class rhythm section and  Eichler's unspeakable love for her keyboard. Why try to explain it? Just sing along. Some choice quotes: 'Margrit is a genius in the vein of Pete Townshend.' Joe Cote-San Francisco Spectrum '...Eichler is an excellent writer you would like to hear more of.' Diedre Johnson-Knoxville Daily Beacon 'Margrit's voice is big and bit smoky. Her melodies soar...the hooks float into your head and stay there.' Scott Mobley-Redding Record Searchlight 'True Margrit has to be one of the best keyboardists around town.' David Womack-Haight Ashbury Free Press '...wild-woman keyboard-player has the heart and soul of a gifted chanteuse.' Michael  Cronin--Teenage Kicks '...lures  you into repeated listenings...one little dame who can really belt out a number' Wayne Bledsoe--Knoxville News-Sentinel 'Oh Margrit; you know they'll tell you anything you want.' Neva Chonin-San Francisco Bay Guardian.
