Self-titled CD completed, looking for label support.



Earle Grey is a seventies style guitar driven rock band who like it loud and to the point. Throw in Steve Earle's mid-nineties alterna-rock songwriting and you've got something truly original. Imagine a mix of Cheap Trick with Bob Mould and Foo Fighters. This is a pro band who are heavy on rock while maintaining a light attitude.
After playing drums in the sucessful Cincinnati rock quartet, The Afghan Whigs, Steve Earle took some time off from music and started a family. Some time later he picked up the sticks again in the stoner-rock group, Hermano, but soon moved on in order to persue his own musical project. Earle Grey is the result of Steve's desire to write and perform his own music and front a band as singer and guitar player.
But it didn't happen overnight, Steve had the songs and the idea but no band. So he decided that recording some of his songs with the help of some long time friends and fellow Cincy rock scene stalwharts was the next step.
Steve played drums, guitar, and sang. Greg Reynolds and Paul Cavins of Throneberry lent a hand on guitars and bass. And Jim Connelly, an old friend and pre-Whigs bandmate of Steve's, played some more guitars. The ten song CD was recorded by another old friend, former Afghan Whigs soundman, Steve Girton.
With the record complete Steve Earle got to work assembling a band to help him perform these songs. He found yet another old friend and one time student, Adrian Cabrerra, to hold down the drumming post. A few months later bassist Jeremy Singer was introduced by a mutual friend and the three began practicing in mid-Summer 2005. After auditioning several guitarists without much luck, the decision was made to move Jeremy to guitar and look for a bass player. Shortly after posting an internet add, the group was finally completed when Jeff Freeman joined up and began laying the bass down.
Earle Grey is now performing in and around Cincinnati and plans are being made for an official release of Steve's CD. The group is also currently recording demos of several new songs.
