Earl Okin

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'.

Added to all of this is his Humour, sophisticated and witty enough to have made him perhaps the leading music & Comedy act on the unforgiving London Alternative Comedy Circuit!

Earl has performed at such Jazz clubs worldwide as Birdland in NYC, Ronnie Scott's in London, L'archiduc in Brussels, etc...and Jazz Festivals such as The North Sea Jazz Festival in Holland, the Cork International Jazz Festival in Ireland, etc...

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 genres!

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..”
