As if the musicianship, songcraft, and dedication to perfect production of Danny Burns’ debut North Country were not enough, Danny Burns continued building on his rich sound and cross-genre folk fusion with his lead single, “Many Moons Ago” featuring the haunting vocals of Sarah Jarosz from the 'Hurricane' EP. It's a song dedicated to 2020 as The First Nations and Irish Year of Solidarity.
While 2020 is a year that will be remembered for its volatility, Danny Burns and his formula for perfecting a song has remained one constant. Burns followed up the expertly crafted “Many Moons Ago” (featuring Sarah Jarosz) with “Trouble,” featuring Aubrie Sellers, Jerry Douglas and Dan Tyminski - the kind of all star Americana cast that brought so much acclaim to his debut album North Country.
“Trouble,” has an energy that could be mistaken for a live performance. Everyone finds a pocket here, from the wailing fiddle in the coda of the chorus to Jerry Douglas’ resonator solo. Sellers’ and Tyminski’s background vocals add height and brightness to the song, rendering a three part harmony reminiscent of classic bluegrass / Americana most would recognize from “O Brother, Where Art Thou.”
Burns’ upcoming 2021 EP, 'Hurricane' will be serviced to radio in January.
