I love poking around on Daytrotter… I always find something amazing! The more I hear from Justin Townes Earle, the more I love his sound. It’s shocking that he’s only in his mid 20s, he’s certainly got an old Johnny Cash-like sound.
Justin Townes Earle – “Harlem River Blues”
I’m really diggin’ this song – the title track from Justin Townes Earle’s new album. Unfortunately he’s had some personal issues lately… a sliced hand causing a Newport Folk cancellation, assault and battery charges pressed against him by a club owner, and most recently a postponed tour and self-imposed rehab. It’s interesting to think about the personal lives of musicians. Despite all the troubles he seems to be having personally, his musical talent cannot be denied. I hope he finds the strength to get it together and continue on with his career.
