Bio

“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...."

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; Chris Stapleton, Jason Isbell, Guy Clarke and Townes Van Zandt, but the list could go on forever. In terms of his sound, folks have sometimes said there is a Cody Jinks vibe to his deep, emotive voice.

Residing now in Central Queensland, The Earl Of Grey can be found at big events like the Tamworth Country Music Festival and in pubs, clubs and cafes up and down the east coast of Australia.

His debut EP, Prince Charming is due for release mid 2019, with it's title track coming from a self-effacing look at his love life, culminating in the hook 'Sorry babe but I ain't no prince charming.'
