Product Description

With Justin Townes Earle's pedigree come with mixed blessings. As the son of legendary singer/songwriter Steve Earle, high expectations are the name of the game and he's shown that he is up to the task on THE GOOD LIFE, crafting stark portraits and narrative tales with elements of blues, classic country and Rock 'n' Roll. A modern day troubadour, Earle blends genres seamlessly, framing his songs in warm musical settings and creating tunes that could easily be mistaken for classics. Joining Earle in the studio are a cast of all star players including longtime cohort Cory Younts on banjo and mandolin, pedal steel player Pete Finney.

Amazon.com

Like his musical pedigree, the debut release by Justin Townes Earle is a mixed blessing. In Texas songwriting circles, having Steve Earle as a father--who gave him his middle name in commemoration of his creative hero Townes Van Zandt--is the sort of burden that a basketball-playing son of Michael Jordan might carry. Half of these cuts that sound like Lone Star roadhouse ready-mades, dimly remembered from some 1960s jukebox (though all Earle originals.) During this stretch of The Good Life, neither his voice nor his songwriting is strong enough to raise the results above the generic. Yet the folkier intimacy he displays on "Who Am I to Say" and "Turn Out the Lights" shows a singer-songwriter who can really get under the listener's skin when he isn't trying to sing over a band. Saving the best for last, he sounds a little like his dad on "Far Away In Another Town," but he also sounds like an artist coming into his own. --Don McLeese
