People tasked with having to describe Ronnie Earl invariably note his passion. It’s worth repeating because it’s true. For his 40-year career as a blues musician, Ronnie has transfixed audiences with his distinct brand of emotion-laden blues. Still today, each time he performs he gives his audiences his all and shoots for the moon. Ronnie Earl is a four-time Blues Music Award winner as ”Guitar Player of the Year,” and a world-renowned composer and musician. Most of his 26 albums have included chart-toppers and best-sellers and he continues to be a crowd favorite at music festivals to this day.

Following the immensely successful Beyond the Blue Door album released in 2019, Ronnie continues to perform with his outstanding band The Broadcasters on his latest release: Rise Up. Scheduled to be released on Sept 11, 2020 by Stony Plain Records, Rise Up contains songs written and recorded just as the COVID19 quarantine was winding up. The majority of the album, recorded in The Living Room Sessions in Ronnie’s home, are filled with songs that remind us of the comfort brought by family and community. Ronnie Earl has always believed in the power of music to heal the mind and spirit, and the 15 tracks on this new disc demonstrate that implicitly.

Rise Up confirms Earl’s status as one of the most soulful blues/soul/jazz guitarists working today and as Gregg Grella reminds us, ”Ronnie Earl continues to play elegant guitar.”
