Artist: Hurst, Album: Wanderlust, Song: Stumble

"I don't really know what I should say or do.  These growing pains are killing me and you.  Nobody wants to listen round here.  We're not always right, we're not always wrong.  Stumble through the moment, stumble 'til we gotta get it right." Trevor Hurst is a musician from Winnipeg, Manitoba originally.  He is likely best known as the lead singer for the band, Econoline Crush.  Trevor headed to Vancouver before settling in Seattle and forming that band in 1992.  They had some huge releases over their career; some of which achieved gold status.  They toured the world, were nominated for a Juno twice and opened for bands like KISS, The Foo Fighters and Collective Soul.  It was actually during a one off gig in Cleveland where Trevor met Collective Soul guitarist, Ross Childress, for the first time.  This encounter would become an important precursor to the release of this album, Wanderlust.  Following the less than stellar commercial response to Econoline's third full length album.  The band went on hiatus and in 2005, Trevor created a new band called, Hurst, and released their one and only debut album.  He was joined by former Collective Soul guitarist, Childress.  It's not anything like Econoline Crush beyond the obvious trademark vocals supplied by Trevor himself and the recognizable guitar that made Collective Soul so great.  It is more of a stripped down rock affair with very little electronics.  One very cool tune on this 7 song release is Stumble.  You can check out the song on You Tube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I-63mKRO4-U&blend=1&lr=1&ob=video-mustangbase).  Hurst would end up reforming Econoline Crush and they went on to release a new album in 2008.  They are still together and touring.  You can follow them at http://econolinecrush.us/.  Although this one off solo release shares all the trademarks of a rarity now, it is available on Itunes for download.  Thanks for reading and enjoy!
