Everlasting Earle

Everlasting Earle

 Greenville, South Carolina, USA

Everlasting Earle is a rock band from Greenville, SC that has been taking their underground Brooklyn sound and high energy live show across the southeast since 2004. The Earle is working their asses off to promote their new debut full-length album, "E," get fans to shows, and keep the buzz growing.


With an infectious driving rock sound and an energetic live show Everlasting Earle has long been one the best-known local acts in the upstate of South Carolina. Their sound, while sometimes reminiscent of older bands such as The Beatles and The Who, is often compared to artists such as The Black Keys and the White Stripes. Earle is currently in the final mix-down and mastering stages of their long awaited debut full-length album entitled "E," recorded at Sit-n-Spin Records in their hometown of Greenville, SC.

Lead singer Keith Carson offers a voice unlike any other, combining a Billy Corgan like rawness with a McCartney like sense of melody. Throw in the catchy lead guitar styles of Dan Youngblood, the solid “in the pocket” bass lines of JC Ward, as well as Travis "T-Dogg" Rygg's well-crafted drum licks and you’ve got yourself a gig with the Earle!
