Steve Earle In-Store Performance


Steve Earle was born in Fort Monroe, Virginia, but grew up around San Antonia Texas. Influenced by the folk, country legends Townes Van Zandt & Guy Clark, Earle became a master storyteller in his own right; penning songs for Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Emmylou Harris, Waylon Jennings and many others. In 1986 he released his debut album “Guitar Town” which quickly went to number one on the country charts. In 1987 he received his first of 14 Grammy nominations for “Best Country Song” for “Guitar Town.”His First of three Grammy wins came with a nod for “Best Contemporary Folk Album” for “The Revolution Starts…Now.”
Not content to rest on his music laurels Steve Earle has taken on both an acting and writing. Publishing a novel called “I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive.” And appearing on the HBO shows “The Wire,” & “Treme” as well as the movies “Leaves Of Grass” & “Slacker Uprising.”
On Tuesday February 17th Steve Earle will release the album “Terraplane.” The album takes its title from the 1930s Hudson Motor Car Company of Detroit model, which also inspired the Robert Johnson song, “Terraplane Blues.” It is Earle’s 16th studio album since the release of his highly influential 1986 debut “Guitar Town.” As its title suggests, the album is very much a blues record, some of which was written while Earle toured Europe alone for five weeks with just a guitar, a mandolin and a backpack.

Free Slow Magic In-Store

Slow Magic

A DIY project with worldwide scope, Slow Magic is universal and inclusive. It’s cosmic electronic music culled from the ether, yet crafted with human hands. It’s joyous, escapist, multi-disciplinary art that mixes transcendent performance with the nostalgic intimacy of two teenagers staying up too late on the phone.

How To Run Away, Slow Magic’s debut with Downtown Records, reflects this growth, oozing both otherworldly beauty and a mastery of production. Lead Single “Girls” is deconstructionist house with an organic pulse and collaged, handcrafted samples. “Hold Still” sculpts elastic organs and jazz piano into an emotionally-pummeling finale, while the melancholy “Let U Go” merges watery dub with spectral piano and “Closer” plays like a ‘90s R&B fever dream.

Slow Magic is music by your imaginary friend.

Nearly a decade after folk-rock duo Sarah Lee Guthrie & Johnny Irion put out their first album together, the husband-and-wife pair feel like they’ve finally hit their stride on Wassaic Way, a collection of 11 new songs that were released on August 6th on Rte 8 Records.

Produced by Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy and Patrick Sansone at the Loft in Chicago, Wassaic Way finds Guthrie and Irion pushing further beyond the folky sound they established on 2005’s Exploration, their first studio LP.
