Justin Townes Earle


Justin Townes Earle laughs about not knowing what Americana means anymore and he scoffs at what is described as country music today.  But if you think "heart and soul," you have a pretty good idea of how to describe Earle's style - whether he leans Americana, country, folk, blues or any other direction.  Son of the well-traveled Steve Earle, Justin Townes Earle is an equally gifted singer/songwriter.  His critically acclaimed "Single Mothers" release (September, 2014) was followed up in January by the companion album "Absent Fathers."  They course Earle's life up to his 33rd birthday and tell of his personal and professional experiences - good and bad.  Justin Townes Earle performed, along with guitarist Paul Niehaus, at the Orpheum Theater in Sioux Falls on September 28.
