Live on the Roof: Justin Townes Earle

Earle recently visited Houston Public Media to record a couple songs for an upcoming edition of “Skyline Sessions” before a concert at The Heights Theater.

Acclaimed singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle followed his famous father Steve Earle into the music business, playing first in his father’s band, The Dukes, before signing with Bloodshot Records in 2007 as a solo Americana/folk/country artist.

Earle recently visited Houston Public Media to record a couple songs for an upcoming edition of Skyline Sessions before a concert at The Heights Theater.

But instead of performing in the Geary Performance Studio, he took to the roof of our building — with the Houston skyline in the background — to perform two songs: “Champagne Corolla” and “Maybe a Moment,” both off his seventh studio album Kids in the Street.
