On Good News Ronnie Earl is joined by The Broadcasters, his band of over 25 years, to create a mostly instrumental album of spellbinding intensity and deep soul that will satisfy his growing legion of fans. Earl’s eighth album for Stony Plain Records shows, once again, the deep respect and knowledge he has for his peers and mentors. Along with a majority of original tunes, he is honored to record “Change is Gonna Come” by Sam Cooke, “Blues for Henry” co written with Hubert Sumlin, and the Junior Wells composition “In the Wee Hours.” “Runnin’ In Peace,” which closes the album, features suppliant lyrics written by Ilana Katz Katz, who was near the finish line of the Boston Marathon when the first bomb exploded on April 15, 2013. A Brief History Legendary blues guitarist Ronnie Earl was born Ronald Horvath, in Queens, New York, on March 10, 1953. He didn’t pick up his first guitar until twenty years later, beginning a musical journey that took him to the sides of some of the most respected and talented blues musicians in the world. Inspired by Muddy Waters, T-Bone Walker, B.B. King, Freddie King, Otis Rush, Big Walter Horton and The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Ronnie quickly developed his six-string skills, playing with an intensity that hasn’t cooled in more than 35 years of playing.
