FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
New York, New York-April 9, 2007- Singer/songwriter and BMI recording artist Thomas Earl has just released his new CD Golddust Magic. The recording is already receiving rave reviews from all corners of the globe.
Thomas clearly has influences drawn from country, folk and rock and roll greats Ray Charles, Bill Monroe, Bob Dylan, and the Rolling Stones. His distinct sound boils down to a magnificent blend of acoustic American music steeped in the traditions of greats such as James Taylor, Neil Young, Bill Withers, Lyle Lovett, Steve Earl, and Amos Lee.
Thomas Earl’s musical journey began in a small town in Michigan outside of Ann Arbor, playing in local clubs with then unknown and aspiring musicians such as Joni Mitchell, John Hammond, Jim Kweskin, and Maria Muldaur. In the 1970s, along with a number of folk artists, he began a migration into rock and roll. His experiences included a brief brush with commercial success with a group called The Woolies, releasing a cover of “Who Do You Love?”, as well as working in a group called The James K. Polk Memorial Rock Band, who released a rock version of Jessie Collin Young’s “Four in the Morning.” At a young age Thomas left the music industry in order to survive. Three years ago he left the corporate world and settled in upstate New York to return to his passion, making music. His long road brought him back full circle to his roots and the end result is the brilliant and fulfilling Golddust Magic.
Golddust Magic was co-produced and engineered by Joe Johnson, of Red Wally Music, who has worked with such artists as Keith Richards, Johnny Winter and Joan Jett. Jerry Krenach, who has played with Chris Whitley, David Byrne and Darryl Hall, plays drums on the project while Sean Dixon and Scott Sharrard, New York City based session musicians and producers, produced the CD and contributed guitar, bass, keyboard, and percussion tracks.
