Roy Peak A pleasant surprise was the EP "License Plate Sessions" by Sincerely, Iris. Modern blues is a tough genre. It's easy to fall into the trap of what everyone thinks blues sounds like without becoming a cliche. Thankfully, Todd Murray, AKA Sincerely, Iris, writes smartly and--ahem, sincerely--and pulls off a rare feat on his newest release, License Plate Sessions. Six modern blues songs played, for the most part, on a four-string license plate guitar with slide. Raw, dark, witty, and understated. Favorite track: Samson.

Sincerely, Iris Charlotte, North Carolina

Sincerely, Iris consists of singer/songwriter Todd Murray. He has a sound that can be summed up best as “road trip music.” It’s a style that’s always changing, and always moving along. Whether it be gypsy-esque or like Kerouac's beat up old truck, shaking down the road at midnight, it is at once comforting, and somewhat unknown. He draws upon influences from Jeff Buckley to Billie Holiday. ... more
