CD Review: The Howlin' Brothers Are Looking For "Trouble" With New Album

From Nashville, TN comes the acoustic trio The Howlin' Brothers with their brand-new full-length album entitled "Trouble." The album will be released on Mat 13th through Readymade Records and produced by indie-rocker Brenden Benson (The Raconteurs). The Howlin' Brothers had a break-through with the song "Big Time," which featured guitarist Warren Haynes and The Brothers were featured on the cover of "Acoustic Guitar" magazine's January 2014 issue.

This new release is sure to continue the success they have established, beginning with the knee slapping rhythm of "Pour It Down" and the fun, bluegrass feel of "Boogie."  They show some southern hospitality with the New Orleans, Cajun-style of "Monroe," they turn into singing cowboys, out on the range with "World Spinning Round." With many different genres covered on this album, The Howlin' Brothers fit right into the blues with "Troubled Waltz" and have the spirit of Bruce Springsteen injected into "Sing A Sad Song." The thirteen-song album finishes up with the rock infused Americana sounds of "I Was Wrong" and a return to the Bayou with "Louisiana."

The "Trouble Tour" started on April 25th and runs through to October, finishing up with a trio of festivals. For a complete list of live shows, please visit
