t’s the only way I knew to say goodbye,” says Steve Earle of this album honouring his late son, Justin Townes Earle, a talented singer-songwriter from the same mould as his famous father: the same mix of Americana influences, the same wearied twang to his vocals, the same inspired way with a lyric. Sadly, too, the same dysfunctional family history, which meant that in boyhood Justin saw little of his father, with his teens quickly curdling into rebellion and substance abuse. In and out of addiction, in August last year “JT” fell foul of a cocaine/fentanyl overdose, aged 38.

Justin was a vibrant songwriter who could play the blues, country and rock ‘n’ roll all in the same song. In his short career, Justin released eight albums and one EP that all manage to sound classic and yet inventive.
Justin’s father, Steve Earle, pays tribute to his son by recording ‘J.T.’, an album of songs written by Justin. The album consists of ten Justin Townes Earle songs as well as one song written by Mr. Earle shortly after Justin’s passing.
‘J.T.’ features fan favourites such as ‘Harlem River Blues’, ‘Far Away In Another Town’ and ‘Champagne Corolla’, along with lyrically heavy songs like ‘The Saint of Lost Causes’ and ‘Turn Out My Lights’.
‘J.T.’ is a loving tribute to a loved son and beautiful songsmith who left this Earth too early. But in his wake, Justin left a wealth of beauty.
Available to independent retailers on red coloured vinyl.
