Earl Okin is one of the world’s finest songwriters and musicians. He plays a variety of genres from Pop and Rock to Jazz, from Bossa Nova to Ballads….
Hugely melodic and always based on musically satisfying chord sequences.
His more recent songs are often in the genre of such classic songwriters such as Hoagy Carmichael, Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Antonio Carlos Jobim, George Gershwin etc. These are all among Earl’s heroes, though his first influence was the music of Puccini and Verdi, still major loves in Earl’s life.
Earl was first signed to the same company as The Beatles, recording at the legendary Abbey Road Studios in 1967.
“You are quite a genius you are - you have managed to find a niche in Cabaret I have never seen nor heard before - you are simply brilliant. Hard to categorise - musician/comedian or what - I guess you are anything the audience wants to categorise you as long as they book you. One must see you in person to “get you” - even though your musicianship is fantastic!!! Your guitar and especially piano playing is thrilling in all the genres! One thing I gleaned from your performance is that one must “experience you” - live - “where you live - you need an audience! Those little nuances you have in your “kit” needs people to experience them..”
BUDDY BREGMAN (Legendary producer/arranger of the Ella Fitzgerald ‘Songbook’ series, who has worked with just about everybody..from Sammy Davis Jr. to Bing Crosby)
