Reviews:

Single Mothers is comprised of ten tracks that showcase exactly why Justin Townes Earle is considered a forefather of Contemporary Americana. As a recently married, sober man JTE writes from a point of maturity and content we've not seen before on past records. 'One day I just realized it s not cool to die young, and it s even less cool to die after 30', Justin laughs as he reflects on a life past and his new found clarity. What he's created is an album that s raw, honest and personal in a way he hasn t touched upon since his debut EP, Yuma.

Once compared to a man who wears many suits JTE has experienced more than most, both personally and professionally, in thirty-two short years. Between releasing four full-length-critically-acclaimed albums, constant touring, multiple stints in rehab, being born Steve Earle's son, amicable and not-so-amicable break-ups with record labels, and facing the trials and tribulations of everyday life, it s safe to say JTE has quite the story to tell. Single Mothers serves as the perfect platform for such narrations.
