Steve Earle

(USA)  Roots, Singer-Songwriter

The term ‘new country’ was created after Earle’s debut record Guitar Town shot to number one on the country charts. Since then, the unpretentious, insightful prose of the oft-covered Grammy-winning artist and celebrated actor has been highlighted through recordings that include biting rock creations, minimalist beauty and politically charged masterpieces. Earle’s 14 th studio album I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive was released alongside his twin debut novel. It imagines the troubled life of Doc Ebersole haunted by the ghost of his former patient and friend, Hank Williams, and was described by fellow songwriter Patti Smith as “a dream you can’t shake, offering beauty, remorse and redemption in spades.”
