Justin Townes Earle
Sometimes you don’t need a reason to do something, desire itself being enough justification. Such is the impetus for Justin Townes Earle returning to Australia to play another run of shows – Last here in April for Bluesfest and a national run of headline shows in support of his presciently-titled fourth album Nothing’s Gonna Change The Way You Feel About Me Now, we aren’t really sure what he’s been up to since then, but no news is good news. Probably writing a swag of awesome new tunes, as is his wont. Or travelling the States impressing all and sundry with his modern-day take on the authentic country music of yore, which was schooled into him from a young age by his legendary old man, Steve Earle.
We’ve heard whispers of him curating celebrations for Woody Guthrie’s centennial celebrations in New York, which sounds like something that he’d do. But he certainly made his debut at producing when he tool the helm of the legendary Wanda Jackson’s new album Unfinished Business. At the end of the day it doesn’t really matter what he’s been up to, only that he’s returning, and he’s bringing his guitar and incredible knack for writing odes for the downtrodden and broken-hearted, something of a speciality for the young man.
