Justin Townes Earle will be making a couple stops in the northwest in Portland and Seattle this fall. Wonder Ballroom is the spot for Portland on October 30 and he’ll be in Seattle at The Neptune two days later on November 1. He’s touring in support of the his new album, Single Mothers.
Single Mothers, Justin’s fifth studio album, was released on September 9 on Vagrant Records and is comprised of ten tracks that showcase exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana. As a recently married, sober man JTE writes from a point of maturity and content we’ve not seen before on past records. “One day I just realized it’s not cool to die young, and it’s even less cool to die after 30,” Justin laughs as he reflects on a life past and his new found clarity. What he’s created is an album that’s raw, honest and personal in a way he hasn’t touched upon since his debut EP, Yuma.
