Justin Townes Earle, an American singer-songwriter with a knack for melding folk, blues, and soul genres, is no stranger to Australia, having toured here eight times in the same amount of years.
Even his newest music video for "Call Ya Momma" recalls what could be considered a distinctly colloquial Australian scene, featuring a bushranger character reflecting as his scavenging life (literally) hangs in the balance.
Earle has released two duelling albums in the last six months, Single Mothers and Absent Fathers, the latter of which he'll be showcasing at a series of Australian shows this month, beginning with performances at Byron Bay Bluesfest from tomorrow.
