Earl Greyhound

Biography

Earl Greyhound began with the collaboration of songwriters Matt Whyte and Kamara Thomas in the Spring of 2002 in New York City. The pair began performing regularly as a duo on piano and guitar in NYC and began to craft the sound that would become Earl Greyhound.

Whyte and Thomas developed the act into a much louder one with Matt on guitar, Kamara on bass, an assortment of different drummers and began playing in New York as Earl Greyhound. After having completed Soft Targets in Brooklyn in the Fall of 2005 Earl Greyhound played New York City clubs a shitload despite the absence of a permanent member on drums. One fateful evening at a gig at Southpaw in Brooklyn, Earl Greyhound found a friend in Roots guitar player Kirk Douglass. Douglass became a fan of the band and then brought his friend and Gold Crowns bandmate Ricc Sheridan to EG gigs for the next few weeks. It wasn't before long that Matt and Kamara realized they had found their dream bandmate, or dreammate and Earl Greyhound hit the ground running with Big Ricc Sheridan on drums.

Soft Targets was released in October 2006 on Quicksand's Walter Schreifels New York label Some Records. The album, and even more so the band's live show, quickly drew heaps of critical attention as they relentlessly toured for the next year and a half in the States, Canada and Japan. The Fall of 2007 was spent almost entirely in bigger, classier venues on tour opening for Chris Cornell and the band's good friend Shooter Jennings. After three months on the road the band safely landed back in NY and

began work at their 24th Street space preparing for the release of their sophomore album.
