With a sound uniquely their own, Brother Earl and The Cousins release new single, “Down With My Ship.” The title track of their new EP produced by Grammy winner Tim Hutton (Jimmy Cliff, Three Dog Night), “Down With My Ship” combines sounds of Bluegrass, Southern Rock and Americana. Earl’s relaxed tone is infectious while he makes his stance known throughout the mid-tempo, feel-good song.
Drawing inspiration from his lyrical hero Tom Petty, Earl wrote “Down With My Ship” in one sitting. “I’ve always been such a huge fan of his. How he had a way of getting to the hook in the first 30 seconds of a song was amazing … As funny as this sounds, and as embarrassing as it is to admit this, I actually prayed out loud and asked Tom Petty to send his muse my way just for one moment,” Earl recalls.
