Wild Earp takes you on a road trip across Americana, taking his time along those country roads and learning some bad habits in the city. His songs are of a man who’s spent too much time alone in the forest, the prairie, the mountains, the desert, and the barroom. With a respectful nod to the old masters and a defiant scoff at the purists, Earp croons his country tunes, Mixing those pensive trail songs with jumping rockabilly, spirited bluegrass, and ventures into the dark corners of folk. His lyrics thread traditional tales of heartache, sinful living, and celebration seamlessly with social commentary and absurdism. There’s wit, wisdom, woe, and a wild streak that keeps you guessing.
He’s backed by The Free for Alls, a talented and fun-loving cast of characters who give life and depth to the music. Their hootin', hollerin' enthusiasm is matched by their good taste and broad talents, and they leave nothing off the table. They ain't too hard on the eyes, either.
