No stranger to the Southern Hemisphere, formidable singer songwriter JUSTIN TOWNES EARLE, is returning for his biggest tour down under yet - playing 16 dates across New Zealand and Australia. He'll be taking to the stage in The Brewery at The Imperial Hotel Eumundi on Saturday 14 September. He'll be supported by RUBY GILBERT. Since JTE's last tour down under in 2017, he got married, became a father and released his seventh and eighth full-length albums, 2017’s Kids In the Street and the brand new The Saint of Lost Causes, which saw him reunited with longtime producer Adam Bednarik in Nashville. Earle’s fierce fidelity to his creative muse has been a consistent thread throughout his young life. Born in Nashville on January 4 1982, he grew up as the son of country-rock iconoclast Steve Earle, who gave him his middle name in honour of his mentor, the brilliant songwriter Townes Van Zandt.
Justin quickly came into his own as a songwriter and performer, displaying a natural talent for deeply revealing lyrics that reflected his often-harsh life experiences, and a musical approach that effortlessly integrated elements of blues, folk, and country. His 2007 debut EP Yuma set the stage for a steady stream of acclaimed albums.
