1. Trouble

Iconic stories of Mark Twain floating on a riverboat or Bonnie and Clyde running from law enforcement weave their way into the writings of Todd Murray’s newest EP, “Trouble.” Murray has always referred to his songs as road trip music, and his latest highly anticipated album is no exception - a sort of vintage Americana.

The last experimental blues album “License Plate Sessions,” which was recorded almost entirely with his homemade 4-string slide guitar, marked a new direction for Sincerely, Iris, but that style seems to have seeped into the music permanently on “Trouble.”

From the cold winds of Chicago and the risk of going out on your own to the vastness of the Rocky Mountains, this album takes a look at the bumpy road that is The American Dream.
