Their 2017 release, Wood, Wire, Blood and Bone, earned them the 2017 MusicNL Jazz/Blues Artist of the Year Award, as well as nominations for Album of the Year and Group of the Year. Then came a win at the 2017 Maritimes to Memphis International Blues Challenge in the solo/duo category, and in January 2018 Earle and Coffin proudly represented Atlantic Canada at the coveted International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN.
