New Music – Justin Townes Earle

justin-townes-earle

Despite being someone who has an appreciation of Steve Earle and his music I have until recently somehow failed to clock onto the music of his son the above noted Justin Townes Earle

Being partially named after the great Townes Van Zandt and being the son of one of the US’s best songwriters can be a heavy burden to carry, however, the release of his new album “Midnight At The Movies” suggests he may well go on to eclipse even his father.

Here is my current favourite track

“Someday I Will Be Forgiven For This” – Justin Townes Earle MP3

You can buy Justin Townes Earle’s music HERE

2009 sophomore album from Justin Townes Earle, son of Americana favorite Steve Earle. Within the first song on Midnight At the Movies, you just know you’re hearing something special, that you are party to the unknown and exhilarating paths being explored by an artist on the creative ascendancy. Midnight At The Movies displays an adeptness and musical sophistication of remarkable, organic breadth and is as lyrically sharp as a lover’s tongue as she is walking out the door. Midnight at the Movies is held firm by Justin’s astonishing vision and conviction, yet roams o’er the vast landscape of American music without so much as a stumble.

Daltrey Praises Goody

The Who singer Roger Daltrey, who is organising a series of gigs for the Teenage Cancer Trust, has praised Jade Goody’s courage.

 

 

Roger Daltrey has publicly supported Jade Goody

 

“There but for the grace of God go all of us”, Daltrey told Sky News during a visit to the Royal Albert Hall, where the gigs are being held.

Daltrey organises the concerts every year and is hoping the shows are increasing awareness at a time when cancer is very much in the news, due to the ongoing headlines over Jade Goody’s battle with the disease.

“I think she’s been incredibly courageous. She’s made the maximum use of every minute of her life since she’s had that disease, and good luck to her,” he said.

The Teenage Cancer Trust is a charity he has held close to his heart for some 20 years, over which time he has raised millions, and helped build nine Teenage Cancer Trust wards.

 

Jade Goody is terminally-ill

 

“We literally, physically built this,” he told Sky News on a visit to one of the units at London’s University College Hospital.

“If the TCT wasn’t here, this bit of the hospital wouldn’t have been built to do what it does. It’s a hard slog, but we’re getting there. I’m determined to get it done in my lifetime,” he added.

The Teenage Cancer Trust gigs takeover the Royal Albert Hall for a week every year.

Daltrey helps handpick the artists, and usually shows up to perform himself on a night or two, even if The Who aren’t playing themselves.

 

Horne and Corden will head-up comedy night

 

This year it has been more difficult to find UK artists who are available, he said.

But he has managed to convince former performers The Stereophonics and Kasabian to return, alongside Antony And The Johnsons and Gavin And Stacey stars James Corden and Mathew Horne, who will head-up the traditional comedy night.

A special evening of folk music, featuring Fairport Convention, has been added, plus an evening aimed at younger rock fans, headlined by Bullet For My Valentine.

The Teenage Cancer gigs take place at the end of the month – Daltrey hopes his hard work will continue to help kids of a different generation.
