Uncle Earl


Uncle Earl

Call it old-time for our times: with infectious energy, undeniable charisma, sharp musicianship, and unique repertoire of original and traditional songs, Uncle Earl is bringing the string band legacy proudly into the modern era. The bands national debut album, She Waits for Night, is that rare project that is enriched by tradition but never enslaved by it at once defiantly old-fashioned and defiantly contemporary. It is a sound that bridges gaps. Steady touring over the past two years has found the band appealing equally to folk, old-time, alt-country, bluegrass, jam band, and pop audiences. No matter the perspective the vitality and honesty of the performances on She Waits for Night make Uncle Earl one of the most exciting and promising new bands to emerge in any genre.

Out on the road, attacking festivals, concert halls, coffeehouses, and clubs as a self-contained five-piece, Uncle Earl is introducing a new, younger audience to string band music while delighting longtime fans of the genre with the new possibilities presented by the bands musicianship, songwriting, and personalities. While a pair of limited-run self-released EPs gave the first hint of what the gEarls are capable in the studio, the combination of the band's continuing musical growth and Dirk Powell's expert guidance makes She Waits for Night both the culmination of years of hard work and an inspiring first step.
