John Earle Mainord charmed the ears of many with his transcending vocals and humbling story. Maindord’s amiable personality combined with his distinguishable country, folk and blues inspired sounds made for a tracking that bewitched us all. His single, “The Ballad of the Blue Bonnet Trail” featured on Hand Drawn Records’ third compilation album is sure to captivate each listener with his voice alone. HDR knew little about Mainord prior to his arrival; however, his display of humility and pervading talent left an impression on us all.
