earles-washington.jpgAt this point in his career, Steve Earle has checked off nearly every stage on the rock n' roll checklist: brash young upstart, brushes with the law, near-fatal substance abuse issues, and an unexpected musical resurrection that continues today. Now you can add a move to New York City to his CV. The sights, sounds, and themes of his new digs permeate the songs of Washington Square Serenade, offering him a way to rejuvenate his work. Earle is slowly becoming as much an icon as many of his heroes and his latest quietly adds to an already great body of work. Fans will once more find much to love.
