Brisbane Festival presents

Justin Townes Earle


12 Sept | The Courier-Mail Spiegeltent



"JTE is the coolest man in the game…" MUMFORD AND SONS

No stranger to the Southern Hemisphere, Nashville singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle, on the back of his brilliant new album ‘The Saint of Lost Causes’, plays Brisbane Festival 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.

“He has no contemporary peer.” NPR MUSIC

“Echoes of Guthrie and Springsteen, but Earle’s voice is clearly his own.” THE GUARDIAN, UK

“His snaky baritone has long been a magnetic draw, and his songwriting chops are now first rate.” THE NEW YORKER


This performance contains coarse language, smoke and fog effects. Suitable for all ages.
