“Thomas Earl - "It's Never Too Late" **** Veteran singer-songwriter Thomas Earl comes from the old school, but don't let that put you off. He cut his teeth back in the 1960's playing coffee-houses in Michigan alongside such artists at Jim Kweskin, Joni Mitchell and John Hammond, Jr. Following a stint producing music events, he left music behind for a time to work in the corporate world. A tentative return to music some three years ago led to a full-time involvement this past year and this excellent seven-track mini-album. The opening "Send it My Way" has echoes of Gordon Lightfoot, without being a copy is a modern understated folk gem. Equally impressive is the thoughtful "Touchstone" and the bluesy "You're Goin' Down". A talented six and twelve-string guitar picker, alongside his vocal songs, he offer "Low Tide" and "In the Canyon", a couple of short but memorable instrumental pieces. I can't wait for a full-length album --this guy is really good.”
“VINTAGE FOLK/ACOUSTIC MUSIC - "THE REAL THING". Blend together James Taylor, Gordon Lightfoot, Tom Rush and a touch of Bill Withers and you can get a sense of the style of music written and performed by Thomas Earl. Thomas has been described as, "...a gifted poet that has the ability to set it all to music in a beautiful and unforgettable way that few artists have the ability or insight to accomplish in one recording." Keith "Muzikman" Hannalek, in his review of Thomas' CD, "Golddust Magic", has described it as, " ...a five star indulgence from start to finish." Darry Cox of KSVR radio writes: "Golddust Magic glitters with years of musical talent...check out Thomas Earl!" ”
