Debut Album

DOUBLE TROUBLE X2: Volume 1
Recorded, Produced, and Released by
Ashes and Embers Records (AER) ©2023 


     AER is honored to be representing DOUBLE TROUBLE X2 for their debut album. The album, simply titled “DOUBLE TROUBLE X2: Volume 1,” features some of the band’s signature songs such as Johnny Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues,” Creedence Clearwater Revival’s “Proud Mary,” Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” and Bob Seger’s “Turn the Page.” The band’s performance style and spirit is unique and well-loved by attendees of their shows. The album attempts to capture that style, spirit, and energy with a sound that much resembles their live performances.
     The album is available to stream on music platforms worldwide (excluding Canada, Japan, India, and Pakistan) as well as available for purchase on CD from AER. We hope you will listen and enjoy as we celebrate some of the greatest songs in Classic Country and Rock Music.
