Justin Townes Earle is a man of many things, he’s got the family history (he’s the son of Steve Earle), the prestigious middle name (from Townes Van Zandt) but most of all he’s got talent.  An authentic country voice, Justin Townes Earle’s new album Harlem River Blues brings his Nashville roots to the Big Apple.  The title track featured here is a real nice warm your feet by the fire gospel groove, featuring a vocal beyond his years, a somewhat similarly haunted yet more tuneful Johnny Cash.  The backing band and gospel chorus are great and Justin Townes Earle is fast becoming as timeless as those who gave him his name.
