With his feet firmly planted in the hills and hollers of West Virginia, Jimmie Earls delivers music that crosses multiple genres while also carving out its own unique sound. Part Buck Owens, part Aerosmith, part Lynyrd Skynyrd = all Jimmie!
"I grew up in a very diverse musical environment," says Jimmie. "My earliest memories are listening to my aunt play Elvis and Beatle albums in our basement while she babysat me. From there, it was on to bands like Kiss, Cheap Trick and Led Zeppelin. We also watched country shows like Hee Haw almost religiously, so there was a lot of variety in the air."
Highlights of Jimmie's musical career have been opening for rising country singer Alex Williams, playing two nights during the 75th Annual Sturgis Bike Rally, opening for Jackyl during the 2015 Thunder In The Rockies Bike Rally in Loveland, Colorado and his last band project, American Rebel Soul, being signed to Perris Records and releasing their debut album worldwide with positive reviews.
"Those were obviously fine accomplishments, but there's still so much more I want to do. This is only the beginning," added Jimmie.
When asked to describe his sound, he replied, “It’s real music for real people. It’s about things we can relate to. Some of it is heavier than other songs and there are some quieter songs, but it’s about serving each song individually, Whatever that particular composition requires. I draw inspiration from my southern roots and the values and morals they represent.”
Jimmie is currently working on his first full-length solo album and is looking to tour heavily in the future.
