EarL Loar was born and raised in Newark Ohio. In high school, he developed a love of music that led to him joining the choir, ‘The Boy’s Double Quartet,’ and eventually entering a solo contest where he won 1st prize. Earl’s professional music interest began during the “Elvis Era.” He was a member of a Country/Rock group called “The Triumphs.” This group appeared at many high school hops, as well as a three-year stint on “Gene Fullen’s Canteen” on WTVN-TV in Columbus, Ohio. The Triumphs eventually disbanded, but that didn’t keep Earl from writing songs. He continued to hone his craft; and his talent soon shined through with a touching song called “A Child I’ve Never Seen,” which was recorded and released in Nashville, Tennessee during the Vietnam era. After 20 plus years of traveling and late nights at clubs, Earl got burnt out and laid his weary guitar to rest for 10 years. His passion for music was rekindled in 1997 when he joined the “Songwriter’s and Poets Critique” in Grove City. Ohio. Earl Loar is back now, stronger than ever. He has been working diligently on his songwriting career, and has created his own children’s book with a CD entitled “Kids at Heart” and “Karaoke,” and compiled a CD titled “Special Days” which features his patriotic song called “One Flag of Freedom.” All this considered however, it is not Earl’s experience or accomplishments that should impress you. It is his genuine spirit and sincere passion that are conveyed through his performances. He is truly an entertainer and a joy to watch.

My musical influences are clear back to Elvis, Marty Robbins,... I mostly influence myself by listening, reading and always observing and studying.
I use an acoustic guitar and harmonica.
I try to keep abreast of the trends, yet I am still going to write my way. I really enjoy helping others that are songwriters or in any other phase of the music business. This includes merchandising and marketing.
