Young guitar-wielding, globetrotting Americana exponent Justin Townes Earle may well be one of the hardest working troubadours on the world stage today, but he sure has built up a mutual love affair with Australia and our people. We love the hell out of him, and, well, his impending tour this April will be his fifth visit to our shores since he first wowed punters and critics alike on his first foray at the tail-end of 2008, so the feeling is obviously reciprocated. Just ask the man himself, he recently offered of Australia:
“It’s my favourite place to tour on earth without question. It’s very intriguing, and the women are very beautiful, tall and sensual. It’s awesome. It reminds me of Dr Seuss and I like that.”
Strange but fair. For those yet to experience the live sensation that is Justin Townes Earle, you’re sure in for a treat. The lanky, tattooed man and his music drip with charisma and authenticity, seeming to channel the spirit of long-forgotten country and blues icons such as Lightnin’ Hopkins and Buck Owens, but filtering them through a modern sensibility that broadens his appeal to all and sundry, not just purveyors of the old school. Hell, celebrated country outlaw Steve Earle is his dad and he’s named after his legendary godfather Townes Van Zandt, you can’t get much better lineage than that in this business.
