Chicago songwriters James Curley and Ilsabe O'Connell, aka Earnest & Troubled, both flew solo and under the radar for many years. Then they discovered they sounded great together, discovered some of their songs work better for duos than solos, and decided to hang out their shingle as 'Earnest & Troubled,' launching in 2016.
The New Zeitgeist (Chicago's rising duo Jen Reilly and Eddy Bluma) explore the origins of the oral folk tradition that touches upon outlaw and rock ballads. "One of the best new albums of 2017" by Steve Morse, 30 year Boston Globe critic, Myths and Mortals features the contribution of Austin City Limits Hall Of Fame member Lloyd Maines, whose collaborations range from Guy Clark to Joe Ely. “Old souls,” migrating from desert and sea, the two began collaborating as a folk duo with tempting harmonies and lonesome spirituals. Reilly’s country gospel roots and southern swing deeply welcomed the black leather grit of Bluma’s rock influences in new intertwining medley. Far-reaching, yet familiar; The New Zeitgeist calls from the deep to weary, worn trails of spirits
