Born in Nashville in1982, Justin Townes Earle grew up as the son of country-rock iconoclast Steve Earle, who gave him his middle name in honor of the great Texas songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Since launching his recording career a decade ago, he has established a reputation as a singular leading light in the Americana music community. With fearless, personally charged lyrical insight and infectious melodic craftsmanship, the young veteran singer-songwriter has built a rich, personally charged body of work.
Now, on his seventh album, Kids in the Street, Justin Townes Earle raises the creative and personal stakes to deliver a deeply soulful set that’s both emotionally riveting and effortlessly uplifting. Taking himself out of his creative comfort zone and assembling a new set of collaborators, Earle has created one of his most potent efforts to date, reflecting all manner of new influences upon his life and his art.
“It is the worth the price of admission to hear Earle’s beautifully rendered Piedmont guitar picking to the words and melody of this song about the home of Elvis in Memphis. It’s the final note of redemption and hope for an artist who has grown into something that borders on his own hard-fought greatness. We hope this is one more jewel in the string of musical diamonds this artist has strewn around the Americana landscape for the last ten years.” No Depression magazine
