Review – Earle & Coffin

Album: Wood Wire Blood & Bone
Release Date: February 3, 2017
Genre: Blues

Earle & Coffin is a duo from St. John’s, Newfoundland that you may not be familiar with but trust me, you need to get to know this duo now. With unreal talent, this duo brings back the sound of the Blues from yesteryear and brings a new light to them for this generation to enjoy. Insane guitar skills paired with oddly deep voices for the two teenagers gives Earle & Coffin their edge.

The album is ten song long release, ranging from just over three minutes to just over seven minute long tracks. Even though there is no shortage of content on the album, ‘Wood Wire Blood & Bone’ is still not enough for the listener. “Someday” opens the album, immediately capturing your attention. “Kind Hearted Woman,” a personal favourite of mine, was the song that made me realize just how much talent the duo held when I saw them perform live at ECMA 2017. “You’ve Done Nothing” closes out the album as the longest song, clocking in at seven minutes and fourteen seconds.

Saying I was impressed by the album is clearly an understatement. I cannot put into words how much you need to listen to this album to understand the songs Earle & Coffin are able to play.

I’m a Toronto girl born and raised but have been living in Prince Edward Island and New Brunswick since 2010. Music and writing are my two passions, so what better place for me to be than a writer with Canadian Beats? I have been writing for the blog since May of 2013 and have had so many great experiences because of it. I listen to almost every kind of music but my favourites are pop rock, rock, indie, folk, and any other combinations of them. Concerts are definitely my favourite place to be, especially when you’re right against the barricade and can feel the energy from the band and the crowd, everyone singing the same lyrics and moving to the music. I also have a college degree in Business Administration and hope to one day be able to publish a novel.
