Colvin & Earle

 

COLVIN & EARLE reveals a truly collaborative creative partnership, with each singer/songwriter contributing verses, melodies, choruses, and chord progressions. Songs like “Tell Moses” – a rollicking slice of folk-gospel that works its way from Egypt to Ferguson, MO – and the irresistibly vibrant “Happy & Free” see Colvin & Earle gelling into a gorgeous, cohesive duo, the perfect vehicle for their sterling harmonies and infinite songwriting gifts. COLVIN & EARLE’s more melancholy moments cut close to the bone from both artists’ personal experiences, from the winsome “The Way That We Do” and the self-reflective “You’re Right (I’m Wrong)” the closing “You’re Still Gone” (featuring lyrics by Julie Miller). Colvin & Earle also chose to include four distinctive covers, including “Ruby Tuesday” and “Raise The Dead” as well as a bluesy take on The Nashville Teens’ garage rock standard, “Tobacco Road,” and a new interpretation of “You Were On My Mind” blending elements of both Ian & Sylvia and The We Five’s classic versions.
