After just a short absence after his last tour to Australia with his band, Justin Townes Earle will return to a stripped back solo show in July.
Earle will play selected venues in Sydney, Melbourne plus Queenscliff, Hardys Bay and also the Bellow Winter Festival. Tickets for all shows are on sale now.
Earle’s seventh full-length album, Kids In the Street, was released last year to rave reviews in the United States, UK, Canada and here in Australia with Rolling Stone Australia giving it four stars and stating “It’s Earle’s best work in years.”
Earle’s fierce fidelity to his creative muse has been a consistent thread throughout his young life. Born in Nashville on January 4, 1982, he grew up as the son of country-rock iconoclast Steve Earle, who gave him his middle name in honour of his mentor, the brilliant songwriter Townes Van Zandt. Justin quickly came into his own as a songwriter and performer, displaying a natural talent for deeply revealing lyrics that reflected his often-harsh life experiences, and a musical approach that effortlessly integrated elements of blues, folk, and country.
This will be Earle’s 9th tour of Australia having been here last October to play Australia’s leading Americana Music Festival, Out On The Weekend, where he blew them away and this time will be no different. Come and see a master songwriter and performer at work.
