Alt Country singer-songwriter The Earl Of Grey is launching his debut EP Prince Charming in Gladstone next month.
The launch is coming up on Friday September 14 at Willy Ed's Music Accessories. The Earl Of Grey will be performing all the tracks from the EP and telling the stories that go along with them, supported by Bundaberg songwriter Craig Lamond.
The Earl Of Grey has spent time in just about every corner of the wide, brown land that is Australia, and the sense of freedom, adventure and inevitable heart ache is on display from the first note you hear pass his lips.
With a pedal steel guitar playing father, The Earl Of Grey has somewhat of a country music pedigree. However it is his own life journey that makes up the stories he tells.
Often consisting of nothing more than a thumbed acoustic guitar and his signature booming, gravel filled voice, The Earl Of Grey seeks to connect with his audience through shared experiences of grief, joy and humour, allowing everyone to fully engage with the lyrics and emotional telling of the tales.
If pressed to name influences, The Earl Of Grey would list the greats of the Texas storyteller tradition like Guy Clarke, Blaze Foley and Townes Van Zandt.
Based in Central Queendland these days, The Earl Of Grey can be found gigging everywhere from major events like the Tamworth Country Music Festival to local pubs and clubs.
