The Earls of Enkalon
Nostrum substantia est elite
The Earls of Enkalon were a long time in the making. All members had at one stage dabbled in the music business only to find people drifting away and growing less and less committed. It looked like the Earls were doomed to drink in the same bar and talk the same shite every week for the rest of their lives. Until a twist of fate inspired them to once more take arms and they answered the call with heroic zest. Formed from the ashes of several ill-fated projects, the Earls of Enkalon are a collective of serious men who make serious music.
The Earls established ownership on March 8th 2009.

Kay Dinsmore, formerly guitarist and vocalist with The Sex Shop Boys taps in to his love for The Stone Roses, The Strokes and Brit-pop act Blur to bring slinky riffs and solid rhythm to the Earls.

Having cut his teeth as a percussionist
in Liverpool’s underground dance scene, Daryll Kyle moved onto full kits after having provided drums for hip hop band Player 1 and avant-garde act Peter and the Wolf. He is currently providing session music for recently signed act Tanya Strowger. As an Earl, he has fused his breaks and hip hop experience with Bonham style grooves.

Veteran songwriter Kevin McCusker has laid down the gauntlet with his talent for bass before, but never more so than as an Earl. Citing the Rory Gallagher Band’s Gerry McAvoy as his main influence, McCusker’s thick, juicy licks provide the Earls with a solid backdrop of raw, throbbing power.

Mal McGinley’s upbringing as a musician began in the world of jigs and reels performing with other traditional musicians at local sessions from a young age. As a man, the move into contemporary music was inevitable. Having surprised many of his peers with alternative hip hop act CentiPEDE MasSIVe, he showcased his songwriting and guitar talents with indie band Spiderhoofs. His skills serve the Earls well, leading their musical charge and chopping intricate solos through and above their growling sound.

Craig Parker earned his live performance credits as a DJ playing throughout the UK and Ireland before forming a long standing writing partnership with fellow Earl, Mal McGinley, during their time in Spiderhoofs. Having spent his time since perfecting his own electro productions as Pirate At The Disco, Parker threads and drapes sometimes lush, sometimes gritty Korg goodness throughout, giving the Earls an experienced, electronic edge.
