"Perhaps the finest living blues guitarist on the planet." ~ The Boston Phoenix


Ronnie Earl caresses the strings with utmost sensitivity one moment, alternately following it by a cluster of hard-edged riffs.”  ~ Gary Tate/LivinBlues


"Ronnie is considered by critics, fans, and musicians alike to be one of the greatest guitarists to ever grace this planet, and his music truly transcends genres and touches the soul. Be it jazz, blues, or standards, his dynamic approach to playing is respectful of his influences and at the same time transporting jazz and blues into the next millennium." ~ Tom Guerra


“A phenomenal talent equally capable of throwing out both nimble-fingered jazz licks and greasing down-and-dirty Delta blues riffs, Earl's playing is a cross between B.B. King’s effortless elegance, Albert King’s funky grit and Freddie King’s instrumental playfulness.”  ~ Reverend Keith A. Gordon
