Southern Roots/Rock    – Ameriphonica Tour 2018

„If you like your rock hearty and your steak rare!“

MODERN EARL is a kick-ass southern roots rock band with an all or nothing attitude.   It is difficult nowadays to find a band that lights up the stage like this four- piece powerhouse of energy, chemistry and talent.   From carefully crafted original songs, to perfectly interpreted rock classics, big-city blues, and southern fried roots music, Modern Earl lives and breathes its own unique style of music.

One of the hardest-working bands on the European festival circuit, Modern Earl ignites the air with tight vocal harmonies, and sizzling guitar licks that keep audiences on their feet from the first chord to the final encore.   In clubs from Berlin to Barcelona, the band creates searing excitement with its high-powered, no gimmick, stage show and a style of music that cuts through the bull to get straight to the heart.

Raised in a family of musicians, lead singer and songwriter Christopher “Earl” Hudson enjoyed a life surrounded by all styles of music and performed in many different groups before forming Modern Earl in 2007.    He teamed up with Nashville natives Ben Hunt (bass, vocals) and Ethan Schaffner (electric guitar, lap steel, banjo, vocals) and drummer Dan Telander and the boys hit the road hard.  Having recently performed their 700th show they have shared the stage with such varied acts as Molly Hatchet, LeAnne Rimes, 80’s supergroup Asia, Zucchero,  Paul Young, Bob Geldof, Triggerfinger and many more.

Influenced by everyone from Zepplin, The Allman Brothers, Merle Haggard and Oasis, to Stevie Wonder, and even The Smiths and the Sex Pistols,  Modern Earl’s music ranges from bar stool ballads about extramarital affairs, to wacky and whimsical tales of life on the road.  With all the smoothness and fire in a stiff shot of fine whiskey, Earl’s commanding and soulfully gritty lead vocals are peppered with Ethan’s scorching guitar licks strummed on strands of barbed wire. Adding a generous helping of country thunk, Ben’s bass brings up the bottom accompanied by steam hammer drums driven by Dan on the back line. All this is seasoned with three-part harmonies that are as sweet as honey dripping fresh from the comb.

Modern Earl is a raucous bunch of rockers who enjoy a rolling good time on stage and off. With a catalogue of three full-length albums under their belt, the band released their 4th studio record, Hot Damn in 2014, featuring a more electrified rock sound. Modern Earl will be  touring Europe non-stop in 2016 to promote their 5th Album, which will be released in early spring this year.   Do not miss this Band, they will rock your world!
