    The Dish - Native Houstonian Trish Murphy's new record is something to talk about

    Trish Murphy's a living study of the nature versus nurture question. Is she so talented because she's got music in her veins? Or because she grew up surrounded by musicians? Or maybe because she works so damn hard? Murphy's first solo record, Crook...
