Judy Blank and Dylan Earl

Local country songwriter Dylan Earl wrote a song with Dutch Americana queen Judy Blank in fall 2019 as part of a songwriters retreat by The House of Songs. Though recorded before the pandemic, "Never Said a Word" wasn't released until Jun. 18. We catch up with the two as they prepare to play a series of dates in the U.K. and The Netherlands.

Timothy is a life-long Arkansan; he grew up in the hills outside of Winslow and has lived throughout northwest and western Arkansas. As a budding musician in his formative years, he became enthralled with recording technology, which carried over into his collegiate studies of print and multimedia journalism at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Upon receiving his degree in journalism in 2011, Timothy immediately began working as a freelance reporter and photographer for the Washington County Observer in West Fork, Winslow and Greenland. It wasn't long before he left the newspaper business for radio and began working full-time as an announcer and news programmer for KURM AM/FM in Rogers.
