Singer Earl Thomas grew up in rural Tennessee and was a British rock & roll fan. Piano player and composer Paddy Milner was born in Scotland, grew up in England and loved American blues. Years later they would meet, realizing their soulful bond had transcended space and time. They, who seemed so different on the outside, harbored a kindred musical spirit on the inside. And it is reflected on their new recording Earl Thomas With Paddy Milner & The Big Sounds, a stunning collection of contemporary blues/rock.
