“Trouble” LYRICS

Give me something to groove to

Goes down smooth like it used to

Back porch sipping, baby

The sunset slipping away


All the time in the world you know

we could stay til we’re just bones

Every time that I’m with you, I know

To live in your eyes, it feels like home

Co-written with a talented group of musicians, including Mike Maurice, Jordan Brooks and Alex Calabrese, “Trouble” emerged from late-night jam sessions and collaborative songwriting sessions. The result is a captivating musical journey that resonates with authenticity, vulnerability and hope for the future as Jacob McCurdy continues to solidify his place in the indie music scene.

Listeners can look forward to seeing the “Trouble” music video when it releases later this month on June 24th, coinciding with collaborator Mike Maurice’s birthday. Additionally, McCurdy will be cycling 100 miles throughout June in support of the American Heart Association.
