Steve Earle leaves comfort zone (Oct 2007)
Steve Earle keeps moving. If it's not physically, it's musically. After 33 years living in Nashville, the outspoken, sometimes controversial singer/songwriter with the Texas twang in his voice split Nashville for the Big Apple two years ago. "Sunset in my mirror pedal on the floor/Bound for New York City and I won't be back no more/...boys won't see me around/Goodbye Guitar Town," sings Earle on "Tennessee Blues," the lead-off song of his new disc, "Washington Square Serenade," which hit streets in late September on New West Records.... more
The revolution starts with Steve Earle (Sep 2004)

His last two critically praised albums - "Train A Comin'" and "I Feel Alright" - were generally acoustically based. So, Earle thought he would make a few sonic changes going into the new disc, English for "The Heart." "I thought before I started it that I was going to make just like a more electric, guitar rock record, which was probably a direct result of several shows with Neil Young on the last tour," Earle says in an interview from his record company in Nashville. "It didn't turn out that way."... more
