Tim Easton

American songwriter Tim Easton was born on the Canadian border in upstate New York and spent his formative years living in Tokyo, Japan and Akron, Ohio. Traveling early and often, he learned the ways of the road and rails and spent 7 years living and playing in Paris, London, Madrid, Prague, Dublin, and 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 it is” reality. Rolling Stone Magazine praised him as “having a novelist’s sense of humanity.”

Back in the USA, he lived successively in New York City, Los Angeles, and Nashville, Tennessee, where he still resides. Meanwhile Tim has been working with Wilco and as support act with Lucinda Williams and John Hiatt. As a solo artist Tim has released ten albums of which his album “American Fork” (2016) achieved 11th place in the American Radio Chart. His most recent album “Exposition” (2019) brings the listener to the sound of a singer with his acoustic guitar. On this album, in ten inspiring compositions, his seasoned voice is combined with his virtuoso finger-picking guitar technique. His music style can best be described as: Roots, Americana, Blues and Bluegrass.
