Review of Justin Townes Earle - 21st July 2008 © Paul Abraham
The New nashville
Justin Townes Earle took the New Roscoe audience through an American musical journey, which will be remembered long after the son of legendary singer-songwriter Steve Earle has packed his suitcases and landed back in the good old U S of A. With a confidence and stage presence reminiscent of Dwight Yoakam, Justin performed tales of 1930ís America through to his own modern-day classics of relationships, good and bad with a humour which put the packed venue at ease. The smoothness of his act as he crafted elements of the Blues, American Country and even Rock-style tunes, made this an evening to sit back and enjoy a craftsman at the peak of his profession.
The Lost Boys
Reading their myspace site reveals that The Lost Brothers are a very different and unique duo. With a deeper-voiced Everly Brothers sound to them, the duo are becoming favourite visitors to West Yorkshire. Bosh and Barkís harmonic singing and guitar playing were the perfect support act for Justin Townes Earle.
