Bio

The Earl Of Grey – Prince Charming

Quotes

“Honest, deep and captivating…this marks the start of something special.”
— Scott Lamond, ABC Radio, Saturday Night Country

“The Earl Of Grey hits home hard with his soulful, road-weary voice. This is some damn fine song writing.”
— Nathan Seeckts, Recording Artist and Host of ‘Last Night In Town’ on 94.7FM

“Hollow reminds me of one of those classic Charley Pride songs about lovelorn loneliness, rich with the textures of place and time, that checks you into that dilapidated room, listening to a radio and nursing a broken heart. The Earl Of Grey may be the next crown prince of sad country songs.”
— Michael Waugh, Recording Artist & Golden Guitar Award Nominee

Bio

GRAVEL, GRIT & THE EARL OF GREY
"...IF YOU LIKE HONEST TALES FROM A TRAVEL WORN STORY TELLER, YOU WON'T REGRET GETTING TO KNOW THE EARL OF GREY...."

Prince Charming, the debut EP from The Earl Of Grey debuted at Number 2 on the iTunes Country Charts and rose to be the number 1 country music album on iTunes shortly after release. The single ‘Hollow’ from the EP received more than 3000 Spotify streams in it’s first few weeks rounding out an extremely strong freshman release for this new entrant into the Alternative Country Music scene in Australia.

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 story teller tradition like Guy Clarke, Blaze Foley and Townes Van Zandt, but he is creating his own unique brand of musical story telling, and it is the stories behind the songs that The Earl Of Grey likes to elaborate on when performing at festivals and on stages up and down the east coast of Australia.
