Few husband-and-wife musical duos provide audiences with the complete entertainment package that Stacey Earle and Mark Stuart dish out in a live performance. Armed with clever acoustic guitar interplay, autobiographical songwriting, lovely harmonies, and humorous storytelling; this couple captivates your attention from the first moment they are onstage. Based out of Tennessee, Earle and Stuart’s heartfelt music draws from blues, pop, country, rock, and more. The years of touring the folk/Americana circuit (playing 170 concerts a year) have given them a knack for reaching out to the audience in an intimate “come in to my living room” fashion.
Stacey and Mark own their own record label, Gearle Records, and have made 8 CDs over the years. Since meeting in 1992 and marrying the next year, the partners have repeatedly toured the USA, Canada, and Europe. They left the environment of pursuing a major label deal in Nashville by 1998, choosing instead to target small intimate venue crowds in theaters, coffeehouses, festivals, clubs, and house concerts. This new environment has become their home, and they’ve become a recognized fixture on the folk music trail they blaze.
“Earle and Stuart’s sweet love songs were definitely an aphrodisiac…” –Berry Anderson, Pitch.com
