Personalities | Steve Earle | Nineties | Rock

(Vocals, b. 1955)

Earle is an artist whose heartfelt songwriting and passionate vocals straddle both rock and country music. Despite several marriages and periods of drug and alcohol abuse Earle’s music was a vital part of the 1990s, especially the acoustic prisms of Train A Comin’ (1995) and El Corazon (1997). Bluegrass album Mountain (1999) recorded with the Del McCoury Band is particularly impressive. Recent political albums like Jerusalem (2001) and The Revolution Starts… Now (2004) are essential.
