DEBUT ALBUM 'WILDWOOD ECHOES' OUT NOW
This is the sound and these are the songs of Men From Earth. Organic Folk Rock, Earth Music, Mountain Music. Four generations of players, honest heartfelt lyric, sound and vocal harmony in the tradition of the classic string bands and artists. Whether they hail from bluegrass, folk or rock the common thread is always a deep respect and commitment to the craft of song, lyric and story. We are all standing on the shoulders of Giants. We are Men From Earth; we come in peace.
“Imagine the raw power of these gritty folksongs blasting from a festival pa. Imagine the sonic gut-punch of these foot-stomping blues. Men from Earth make songs that can, should, must! – be played loud and live.” Rob Hirst - Midnight Oil / Backsliders
"It is real, both lyrically and sonically. The results are quite stunning." Samuel J. Fell - Rhythms / Rolling Stone
"You feel like you can touch the soul of the man who sings these great songs, played by a band that really sounds like a band should, tight and in empathy with one another. To me this is an important album.... It's the real thing folks! " John Brewster – The Angels
