For the last ten years, singer Justin Townes Earle has been bearing up under the heavy comparisons to two musical luminaries, his father, alt-country godfather Steve Earle, and his namesake, Texas’ most revered songwriter, Townes Van Zandt.
But on his seventh album, Kids in the Street, Earle has left behind the security of his native Nashville, recording in Omaha with producer Mike Mogis of Bright Eyes, and creating a new sound, adding a pop sensibility to his folk and folk background. With Kids in the Street, Justin Townes Earle has come into his own.
