Artist Spotlight On The Creek by Jamie Saunders
JUSTIN TOWNES EARL Justin Townes Earl, the son of legendary folk musician Steve Earl, will be releasing his fourth studio album in five years when he releases Kids in the Street on May 26. Kids is the follow up to 2015’s Absent Fathers and 2014’s Single Mothers, both from Vagrant Records. Earl is currently in the midst of a nationwide tour which ends in early June, with dates in San Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego respectively. Being the son of a legend is not always easy, and has resulted in a bit of a rocky road for the younger Earl. His father gave him the middle name Townes after his mentor, fellow legendary folk singer Townes Van Zandt. Van Zandt and the elder Earl both struggled with drug addiction throughout their career, and the younger Earl would soon follow that path. Growing up in Nashville, Justin was left by his father when he was two years old,
but went on to reunite with the elder Earl when he was 12 after his father got clean. He eventually dropped out of school, battling the same substance demons as the elder Earl, and found work playing in numerous bands, a rock band called the Distributors and a bluegrass ragtime combo named the Swindlers. Earl’s first solo release, a six track EP named Yuma, was released in 2007 and led to a record deal with Bloodshot Records out of Chicago. Earl went on to record four albums in five years for Bloodshot Records. Midnight at the Movies, released in 2009, reached as high as #15 and #41 on the US Heat and Indie charts. Earl followed Movies in 2010 with Harlem River Blues, his third album in as many years, his most successful release to date at that time. The self-titled track from Blues went on to be named Song of the Year by the Americana Music Association. 2012’s Nothing’s Gonna Change the Way You Feel About Me Now reached as high as #62 on the US chart, while also being named to Rolling Stones’ Top 50 Albums of the Year for 2012, with the magazine noting that, “The son of country-rock renegade Steve Earle has grown into a songwriter to rival his dad." Earl’s first single “Champagne Corolla” from Kids in the Street is available for download now, with the album set to be released on May 26.
