Direct Lyrics: Hi Earl! Where are you answering this Q&A from and how’s your day been like so far?
Earl: I'm moving house! I did a yard sale last week and no one came (laughs). Guess they don't do it here. American...
DL: You recently released your new single “All That Glitters”. For those who have yet to check it out, how would you describe your new single lyrically and sonically?
E: 'All That Glitters' is about my journey with the things we tend to crave as humans. Money, love, beauty, to feel good - body, mind and soul. Most dreams are aimed at these targets.
DL: “All That Glitters” is featured on your new studio album “Tongue Tied”, which was released this past July 28th. What can music lovers expect to hear in this album?
E: A collection of salty sweet jazz pop. I've had some cheeky adventures and decided to have more fun from now on and I'm inviting people to come with me. I hope to make folks out there smile, laugh and let go a bit.
DL: Was it difficult only including 12 tracks on the album? Did you record a lot more in your sessions?
E: I recorded loads but these are the real contenders. I would love to release an extended version with 2-4 more that I'm in love with.
DL: We’re in love with your jazzy, bluesy/pop sound. Did you grow up listening to a lot of this genre or how exactly was the process of you becoming a singer of this particular genre? Your voice adapts so well to it!
E: I owe it to my Dad. He had a wicked record collection and I am the benefactor. The first songs I learned were Billie Holiday's songs when I was seven. She taught me the importance of dynamics. Then I learned from Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Doris Day, The Andrews Sisters and Miss Nina Simone.
DL: If you could record a collaboration with any artist tomorrow, who would it be, why him/her, and how do you imagine your song to be like?
E: Right now, I would love to do something Mark Ronson, Pharrell or my fellow Filipino Miguel.
DL: Which is your most played song on your Apple Music/Spotify account right now?
‘Faith' by Stevie Wonder and Ariana
DL: Thank you so much for your time, Earl! Any last thing you’d like to share with our readers?
E: Just sending love!
