Earl Greyhound began with the collaboration of songwriters Matt Whyte and Kamara Thomas in the spring of 2002 in New York. The pair began performing regularly as a duo on piano and guitar in New York and began to craft the rock/soul sound that would become Earl Greyhound. Later in 2005 the pair met their dream bandmate, and Earl Greyhound hit the ground running with Big Ricc Sheridan on drums.
