American songwriter Tim Easton was raised in Akron, Ohio.
Travelling early and often, Tim learned the ways of the road and rails, and spent 7 years as a bonafide troubadour, making his way around Europe, playing the streets and clubs, and living in Paris, London, Prague, Dublin, or wherever he laid his hat. It was this period of time when he developed his songwriting style-folk based storytelling and personal traveling tales, often peppered with bold confessions or “tell it as is” reality.
Rolling Stone Magazine praised him as “having a novelist’s sense of humanity.” Returning to his roots in North America, New West Records released five solo albums starting with 2001’s ‘The Truth About Us,’ which featured three-fourths of Wilco as the backing band. Invitations from Lucinda Williams, John Hiatt, and Steve Earle as a support act followed.
Many tours later, after settling in Nashville Tennessee, Tim recorded an album for Thirty Tigers (Not Cool, 2013), which accented the stripped down Memphis and Sun Studios sound of the Tennessee Three. His newest record American Fork is a grand departure from his previous efforts, featuring a fully fleshed-out backing band, musicians and elaborate song arrangements, will be released on Last Chance Records (North America) and At The Helm Records (UK) in September, 2016.
Tim recently reached the milestone to having 100 published original songs which he celebrated by releasing a hundred solo performance videos on a hundred consecutive days, mostly from his home in Nashville, on his personal YouTube channel.
We are very lucky that he’s coming to East Grinstead.
