About The Earl Trio with Michael Messer

Singer/songwriter Stuart Earl started writing songs about 10 years ago. He formed ‘EARL’ with Lyndon Webb and wrote the songs for his 1st album ‘My name is Earl –The Album’. The duo expanded into a 4 piece band and regularly play gigs and festivals across the country. Based in South West and Wales they play acoustic and slide guitars and a mixture of original songs covering Americana, country and blues.

The second album ‘Peanuts & Monkeys’ was released in 2013. Stuart and Lyndon were joined by Michael Messer, slide guitar master and album co- producer along with Richard Causon (Tom Jones, Ryan Adams). It features pedal steel legend BJ Cole on three of the songs. The rhythm section features the talents of Andy Crowdy on Bass guitar and double bass, and Simon Price on drums. The album was recorded ‘live’ at Leif Storm Studios, London in the summer of 2013. It comprises 11 original songs written by Stuart Earl.
