ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer/songwriter, Thomas Earl has just released his new CD “Golddust Magic”. The CD contains 11 new original songs. Thomas’ music reflects a wide range of artists that have influenced his career. From growing up listening to everyone from Mississippi John Hurt and Bill Monroe to Bob Dylan and James Tayor, Thomas clearly has influences rooted in folk music, with a touch of country. His music is acoustic based and you may hear elements of Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Rush, Neil Young, and James Taylor.

Thomas Earl’s musical journey began in a small town in Michigan outside of Ann Arbor, playing in small clubs with then unknown and aspiring musicians such as Joni Mitchell, John Hammond, Jim Kweskin and Maria Muldaur. He continued performing and writing, working both as a solo artist and with various folk, jug band and bluegrass groups. He served as both performer and concert promoter as he produced live music events in Michigan and Ohio. His music took him throughout the Midwest and to Europe, including writing music for a theatrical production tribute to the poet Langston Hughes. 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”. As with many struggling musicians who grow into their twenties, Thomas ended up leaving the music industry and moving into a more traditional career in the corporate world. He always continued playing, performing, and writing music whenever he had the opportunity.

Three years ago, Thomas became re-inspired to begin focusing again on his music. Thomas, as most musicians, doesn’t like categorical boxes people try to place them in, but his music tends to drift between traditional folk and alt/ country…all with a natural acoustic instrument approach.

Thomas now makes his home in the Hudson Valley in New York.
