On Good News Ronnie Earl is joined by The Broadcasters, his band of over 25 years, to create a mostly instrumental album of spellbinding intensity and deep soul that will satisfy his growing legion of fans.
Earl’s eighth album for Stony Plain Records shows, once again, the deep respect and knowledge he has for his peers and mentors. Along with a majority of original tunes, he is honored to record “Change is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke, “Blues for Henry” co written with Hubert Sumlin, and the Junior Wells composition “In the Wee Hours.” “Runnin’ In Peace,” which closes the album, features suppliant lyrics written by Ilana Katz Katz, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when the first bomb exploded on April 15, 2013.
Ronnie Earl is a multiple Blues Award winner as Guitarist Of The Year.
