The Earl Brothers
Robert Earl Davis
I'm waiting for a taxi. One Microphone, some picks, and a bag full of old bar room songs. Once again I ply my trade. Put on the Black Suite that I am accustomed to wear. I look around at the musicians standing beside me as they wait for the first somber notes to ring out...
I am the Band Leader of The Earl Brothers, the Darkest Hillbilly Band on the planet, I'm here to make some Noise!
R E Davis
Their raw and ravaged sound brings to mind Ralph Stanley at his bleakest -- and that's a good thing! "The Earl Brothers have got the soul and the songs and the attitude that brought us all into bluegrass music in the first place," says Chris Hillman of the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers. "Their songs cry of the mountains, of the people, and of the traditions down through the ages. Bluegrass music is alive and well."
