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'.
You are quite a genius you are - you have managed to find a niche in Cabaret
I have never seen nor heard before - you are simply brilliant. Hard to
categorize - musician/comedian or what - I guess you are anything the
audience wants to categorize you as long as they book you.
One must see you in person to get you - even though your musicianship is
fantastic!!! Your guitar and especially piano playing is thrilling in all the
One thing I gleaned from your performance is that one must experience you
- live - where you live - you need an audience! Those little nuances you have
in your kit needs people to experience them..
