Justin Townes Earle
“Earle’s easy manner and casual rapport with his fans tend to mask the escalating genius of this wonderful songwriter and performer” – The Music
Considered the forefather of Contemporary Americana, Justin Townes Earle has a new album and is heading back to Bluesfest!
At just 32-years of age, between releasing four full-length, critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, and a new found sobriety, it’s safe to say JTE, Steve Earle’s son, has quite the story to tell, and it’s all in his music. His fifth album ‘Single Mothers’, which has reached number 3 in the US Folk charts, showcases his reflection on life and his newly found clarity; it’s raw, honest and personal.
His accomplishments include Song of the Year at the Americana Music Awards, 37 on Rolling Stone's list of the top 50 albums of 2012, and Production credits on the Queen of Rockabilly, Wanda Jackson’s 2012 ‘Unfinished Business’.
Bluesfest is pleased to welcome JTE back for Bluesfest 2015.
