& the Company
Colorado based country-blues musician, Earl Nelson, is reinvigorating the field of modern americana music. Influenced by everything from early century delta blues & bluegrass to early 1970's country funk. Writing about the average American life, the music and lyrics behave without genre boundaries.
After years in Austin, TX, he's found a home in Colorado with a group of great musicians that move freely through genres to make for a unique lively rolling sound. Earl Nelson & the Company have emerged to create a funky blend of Mississippi delta blues, motown soul, and bluegrass country. The band infuses blues banjo, jazz keys, funky basslines, and heavy percussion to back Earl's gritty vocals and slide guitar. With a large helping of gospel blues riffs and New Orleans piano solos, their live sound makes any spot a 1930's juke joint.
