Update Earl Okin + Follow

Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Born: January 31, 1947

Earl Okin, who lives in London is one of those rare performers..... a true original!!!

Genuinely versatile, his talents range from that of a fine Singer-Songwriter, (in styles ranging from chart orientated tracks to the classiest of Jazz-Standards, via authentic Bossa-Novas), to that of Pianist, Guitarist, world class Jazz-Singer, as well as his unique standing as ' Vocal Trumpeter, Trombonist and Clarinetist'.
