For a drab time of year that's supposed to be all about recharging the post-holiday batteries, there sure are a lot of interesting people passing through this patch of earth we call the Green, all but commanding attention. If you visit redbankgreen's spinoff site Red Bank oRBit, you're sure to bump into a few.
Today, it so happens, you'd bump into Justin Townes Earle, a singer with a voice that would make Hank Williams proud and deft way with both a guitar and a pen.
oRBit correspondent Laura Schneider profiles Earle (yeah, he's the son of country contrarian Steve Earle) about, among other things, his recent move from Nashville to Brooklyn and scouting out some of the best-stocked record stores in the world.
Earle will be making an encore appearance in our area tomorrow night. Get the details, and tune into our interview with the man himself, only at Red Bank oRBit.
