Jimi Earl was drawn to the guitar and music around the age of 12 and wrote his first song at the age of fifteen. Early influences were Ricky Nelson and the Kingston Trio. He started researching their influences and discovered Donovan, Bob Dylan and the 1960's folk boom. That in turn led him to the Delta Blues masters Robert Johnson and Mississippi John Hurt. Jimi has continued being influenced by other musicians and writing original songs to this day. Originals that range in title from "Pleasure With The Pain", "I've been Around", "Bird That Sings", "Put My Body On A Train" and many more. The following is what Songbay's professional staff say about my songs: "These are exceptionally strong songs and they rank in our top 20% of uploads for musical, vocal and production qualities!" Jimi Earl's original songs come to him through dreams, conversations, observations, relations and the black, white and gray tile of life. Have a listen and prepare to be pleasantly suprised!
