The rising musician, singer, and songstress Megan Brickwood is excited to announce that her upcoming EP Fifth Mile will be released on February 24, 2023. To mark the occasion, the artist has shared the first single, and its video, from the EP “Trinity River Blues.”

Brickwood explains:

“‘Trinity River Blues’ is the first song I wrote in an open tuning. I became interested in open tunings studying Joni Mitchell and Nick Drake. This DADGAD tuning was the first I tried, and it completely caught my imagination. The idea for writing a song called ‘Trinity River Blues’ popped into my head one day while I wandered around by the Trinity River, feeling lonely and melancholy. Some weeks later, when I was back in Los Angeles, working out of my little home studio, I started writing this DADGAD song that I initially conceived of as ‘Colors in the Stream.’ After I’d written the whole thing, I looked over the lyrics and realized that the song I’d written was ‘Trinity River Blues.’”

Brickwood exclaims:

“The creation of the videos was an adventure. I met Hannah, the co-creator and director for the ‘Trinity River Blues’ video through mutual friends in Redding, CA, and we spent a lot of time scouting locations in the areas I’d spent exploring in my youth. ‘Trinity River Blues’ was filmed in McCloud, downtown Weaverville, and at Lewiston Lake. Since both of those songs draw heavily on my experiences in this part of the world, I wanted the videos to reflect that.”
