A native of rural Northeast Texas and currently based in Cashmere, Wa, John Earle Mainord is set on bringing quality songwriting back to country music.
With lyricism that wanders from emotive to playful & a sound that's both fresh and familiar, Mainord’s music is a go-to for any country music fan.
"Denton-based singer-songwriter, John Earle Mainord bills himself as a musician "in the vein of Townes Van Zandt, Guy Clark, John Prine, and Jerry Jeff Walker". Them's fightin' words in Texas, not to mention setting a mighty high bar, but Mainord ably rises to the challenge on his third album. From the last call weariness of "Cigarettes & Beer" to the hardscrabble closer "WIll to Fight", Mainord does his inspirations proud."
