Sincerely, Iris: Bio
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. Sincerely, Iris draws upon influences from Jeff Buckley all the way to Billie Holiday.
Todd recently completed his new album, “Headlight Sonata,” on which he plays 90% of the instruments, and wrote every song. This is his first album under the name Sincerely, Iris and his first album recorded at Chicago's very own Handwritten Recording.
“Todd knows each songs destiny and puts his best foot forward in presenting them on his recently recorded effort, Headlight Sonata.” chimusicreview.com
“One guitar, car in cruise, and brand new wounds to mend,” sums up the whole experience of Headlight Sonata. This is an album dedicated to traveling and moving on. From the slow death of an old relationship, to the fear of falling in love too quickly, to finding comfort in your own mortality, these are songs that you need when all that you have are the white lines and bright lights leading your way.
