Sep 24, 2013

Tim Easton is a Nashville, Tennessee-based American guitarist and singer-songwriter playing rock & roll, blues and folk. Raised in Akron, Ohio, Easton traveled abroad for some time stopping in London, Paris, Spain, Italy, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and Ireland before returning home to the US and joining the group The Haynes Boys.

When the band split up, he embarked on a solo career, with his debut album, Special 20, released in 1998. He subsequently relocated to California, signed a deal with EMI Publishing, and a record deal with New West Records.

In 2007, Easton teamed up with Leeroy Stagger and Evan Phillips to release the album One For The Ditch under the band name The Whipsaws. A sophomore album from this group, Resolution Road, is to be released in 2014.

In 2013 Easton released Not Cool, which was started after he moved back to Nashville and saw a show at Robert’s Western World. The experience inspired him to make Not Cool, which he described as “kind of a 50′s, Sun Studio thing, kind of a rock and roll thing."
