Justin Townes Earle
Fri 13 Sep
No stranger to the Southern Hemisphere the formidable singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle, on the back of a brilliant new album The Saint of Lost Causes, will be playing at the Tanks for the first time.
Since launching his recording career a decade ago, Justin has established a reputation as a leading musician in the Americana music scene. With fearless, personally-charged lyrical insight and infectious melodic craftsmanship, he is undoubtedly one of this generation’s greatest songwriters.
Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, a new-found sobriety, being born Steve Earle’s son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it’s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell. His latest album serves as the perfect platform for such narrations.
“Australia is one of my favourite countries to tour, and my fans there have always come out and supported my shows and my new music. I’m really looking forward to coming back for what will be my biggest Australian tour to date.”
