Justin Townes Earle
Please Note: This event is from 2014.
Justin Townes Earle will be performing a concert at the Colonial Quarter Venue. Once compared to a man who wears many suits, in 32 short years Justin Townes Earle has experienced more than most. Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, and multiple stints in rehab, Justin Townes Earle, son of Steve Earle, has a new found sobriety. JTE has had amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels along with facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life.
His fifth album Single Mothers serves as the perfect platform for such narrations. Single Mothers is comprised of 10 tracks that showcase Justin Townes Earle as a Contemporary Americana artist. As a recently married, sober man, JTE writes from a point of maturity and content unseen before by fans on past records. Since his debut EP, Yuma, Justin's music style has evolved. Single Mothers finds Justin dealing with past struggles and anger with more ease than
ever before. Creating a nostalgic feeling with the return to his signature sound, JTE takes listeners on a journey
through some of his most personal stories yet on an authentic country record.
Single Mothers will be released on September 9, 2014 on Vagrant Records. Justin Townes Earle is almost remembered for his performance at the Gentlemen of the Road Tour stopover in St. Augustine, where he played on the same stage as John Fogerty, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes, and Mumford and Sons.
Throughout his decade-and-a-half-long career, Cory Branan has been performing punk, country, rock, and folk-style music. The musician hails from Mississippi where he first started playing music in his teens. He has proven himself as a top-notch songwriter, fierce lyricist and a hyperdynamic performer. He is skilled with picking and playing a guitar. Across three albums, he’s made collective struggles poetic and breakthroughs into sympathetic acts of populist heroism.
Justin Townes Earle with Cory Branan is a part of the Sing Out Loud (SOL) Series, a St. Augustine Celebration of Songwriters, presented by the St. Johns Cultural Council and St. Johns County Cultural Events Division. Additional SOL Series performances taking place throughout November will be announced in the upcoming weeks.
