Dylan Earl sings his songs in the country and western persuasion.
“Dylan Earl has taken things formerly relegated to the Aaron Tippin-and-Travis Tritt crica-1992 vault and breathed new life into them. He’s anything but insincere in his musical approach…the kind of baritone that’s custom built for pairing with pedal steel and sticky VFW dance floors.” – Arkansas Times
“[I] dug his real feeling brand of country, none of that pop shit here, real country, sad songs sung with beauty and power.” – Covington Imagery

Born down on the Bayou of Southeast Louisiana, music and dancing were always a sizable part of life for Gracie’s family- something she always assumed was “normal.” At the age of four, she and her family moved (back) to Arkansas to be near her mother’s folks. It was there that Gracie eventually realized her need to create music.
A wonderful, centrally located melting pot, this middle-of-nowhere existence served as the perfect blank canvas upon which to mold her style. Building upon the foundation her parents laid, from which Gracie took favorites such as Neil Young, Fleetwood Mac, The Beatles, and The Band, she found herself deeply drawn to the works of Texas singer- songwriters such as Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Delta Bluesmen Mississippi John Hurt and Robert Johnson, Americana heavy hitters Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch, and sweet soul music, the likes of Sam Cooke, Etta James, and Otis Redding.
Now living in Asheville, North Carolina, Gracie is enjoying the challenges and triumphs of being a solo musician, and allowing this decompression time garner more focus on her songwriting. She does enjoy striking up a hot band, though.
