The Savage Hearts Trio is a fiddle driven bluegrass band that features three powerful lead female vocalists who have come together in a spicy tribute to the oh-so-many sung and unsung women of classic country and bluegrass music. Featuring lifetime performers and music educators Tracy Lynn, Jodi Harbin and Annie Savage, the band's drill-it-to-the wall lady-vocals and bombastic instrumentals blended with just the right amount of saucy “been there done that” stage banter has audiences laughing and crying at the same time! Virtuosic instrumentals soar above vocals that are hotter than the punch of a ghost pepper in the middle of a hot flash. So who are these women?
With a vision of total world domination through vibrating wooden boxes, Annie Savage (founder of the Savage Fiddler Method and international performer/educator at www.savagefiddler.com) birthed the band “The Savage Hearts” in 2015 after years of playing side with the likes of Jeff Scroggins and Colorado and many a bro-band. She knew that she wanted to work with other women and she quickly contacted two of her closest friends from the musical world to form the trio. Tracy, who she had worked with at Nimblefingers Bluegrass and Old-Time Camp in Canada and Jodi, who Annie first picked with in the hippy grass circles of the midwest and then worked alongside at the award winning Kaufman Kamp in Tennessee.
With her signature blend of spirituality and edge, Canadian artist Tracy Lynn (www.tracylynnmusic.com) is a soul sister who sings with the passion of a woman who has been there and is back to share her journey. She delivers her experiences through songs with a heartfelt authenticity and wisdom that someone traveled the road before her. Her warm rich melodic vocal stylings will draw you in little closer and then disquiet you with an edgy gravely sass. Tracy Lynn currently resides in her home town in the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada. When she is not on the road performing or teaching, she operates her own business, Sound Waves Lesson Studio.
After years of leading her own project, Lonesome Traveler, Jodi Harbin (www.jodiharbin.com) comes to the trio from the hills of East Tennessee, and brings a slew of southern sensibility and wit to the band. Whether playing the mandolin, picking the old time 5 string banjo, or plucking the bass, Jodi evokes the sounds of the mountains in her playing. When Jodi’s not playing with the Savage Hearts, Jodi shares the stage all over East Tennessee with her guitar picking husband, Tim Harbin. Together they released a gospel CD, “Jesus is Coming Soon”, that benefits the homeless community in the Knoxville area. She also maintains a studio that includes students of all ages, ranging from 6 to 84.
The Savage Hearts Trio is a teaching band that aspires to first bring the magic of music to the stage and then invites others to enjoy the gift of music through jamming and
