Amoeba San Francisco - April 17th @ 6:00pm
Steve Earle's latest album, The Low Highway, releases on April 16th via New West Records. It is his 15th album and the first billed as “Steve Earle & The Dukes (And Duchesses).” Join us for this special album release show at Amoeba SF!
A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, Earle quickly became a master storyteller in his own right, with his songs being recorded by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders, Joan Baez, and countless others.
1986 saw the release of his debut record, Guitar Town, which shot to number one on the country charts and immediately established the term “New Country.” What followed was an extremely exciting and varied array of releases including the biting hard rock of Copperhead Road (1988), the minimalist beauty of Train A Comin’ (1995), the politically charged masterpiece, Jerusalem (2002), and the Grammy Award Winning albums The Revolution Starts…Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007), Townes (2009), and 2011’s Grammy Award-nominated album I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive.
