Great stuff.

"Justin Earle comes from good stock... His father (legendary and ground-breaking singer/songwriter Steve Earle) must have taught him well. But don't be so quick to compare him to his father. Whatever he may have learned from his old man, he continues to prove himself as an individual- always forging his own path no matter where the others are going. Maybe that is the most important lesson he learned from his father (as well as being the main thing they have in common artistically). Aside from that, you must speak a different language when discussing Justin Earle. Whether it be with his now defunct tin-pan/bluegrass/ragtime extravaganza, The Swindlers- or his loud rocking unit, The Distributors- the songs are always smart. And the songs are always good. Justin's honest voice perfectly reinforces his searing melodies and provocative lyrics. Always above (and beyond) par, his music is rapidly creating a buzz in and around Nashville- and elsewhere. As pop music perpetually becomes more and more stale and irrelevant, Justin Earle will continue to forge a path of musical righteousness and great rock and roll."
