Singer-songwriter, actor, author, political activist, producer - STEVE EARLE is one of life's great troubadours!!! STEVE EARLE hasn't wandered this way for a number of years.... In fact ... it's been three albums & and three Grammy Awards since we saw him last. He will be touring around Australia and you can catch him in Melbourne, Adelaide, Newcastle, Sydney or Byron Bay for BLUESFEST.

A protégé of legendary songwriters Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark, STEVE 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 ofCopperhead Road (1988), the minimalist beauty of Train A Comin' (1995), the politically charge masterpiece,Jerusalem (2002) and the three Grammy Award Winning albums The Revolution Starts…Now (2004), Washington Square Serenade (2007) and Townes (2009).

"This may be the shaggy outlaw's most polished set" - Rolling Stone

I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive - STEVE EARLE'S 14th Studio Album - was produced by T Bone Burnett and includes the title track song (a Hank Williams cover) and his original - 'This City'- written especially for the TV Series Treme (in which he appears as cast member, 'Harley').

STEVE EARLE'S long anticipated debut novel of the same name, I'll Never Get Out Of This World Alive, was published earlier this year. The novel imagines the troubled life of Doc Ebersole as he is haunted by the ghost of his former patient and friend, Hank Williams. The title of both Steve Earle's new album and debut novel is taken from the Hank Williams song by the same name; the last single released during his lifetime in 1952.

To go with this new album STEVE EARLE has embarked on a seemingly endless tour (thankfully for us) ...and we are proud to announce his Australian shows for 2012.
