SHAUN MURPHY

TROUBLE WITH LOVIN'

2011-05-02

Shaun Murphy has been the voice of Little Feat, worked and toured with the likes of Bob Seger and Eric Clapton. On her second solo release and follow up to her terrific 2009 release "Livin The Blues", Shaun has added a large dose of soul to her blues. As the title suggests, This CD is filled with tracks that deal with the heartaches associated with relationships gone wrong and the emotions that dig deep into the soul of a women. This is especially evident on the title track, "Blue Tears", "Did You Call" and the slow heart wrench of the "Rio Esperanza". For those looking for the roots sound found in her work with Little Feat work you may be disappointed as Shaun has gone full circle and gone back to the blues that made so many take notice at the 1969 Ann Arbor blues fest and as a blues artist in the early 1970's. This CD places Shaun Murphy as one of the best female blues artists recording today and she really makes you feel the emotions associated with love and the trouble it can bring.
