Tim Easton was raised in Akron, Ohio, learning about American folk music and Rock & Roll from his older brothers and sisters and through albums that his Mother brought home from the library. After studying poetry at The Ohio State University, he traveled abroad for a time, busking in London, Paris, Amsterdam, Spain, Italy, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and Ireland. On his return to the US in the mid-1990s he joined The Haynes Boys, a roots rock band who made one album in Nashville, and earned Easton a publishing deal with Maverick Music. When the band split up, he embarked on a solo career, with his debut album, Special 20, released in 1998 on Heathen Records. He subsequently relocated to California, signed a deal with EMI Publishing, and a record deal with New West Records. After a 7 year stint of living in Joshua Tree, CA combined with several tours around the world, he settled in Nashville, TN.
Easton’s album, AMERICAN FORK, reached #11 on the Americana Music Association radio charts. Rolling Stone Magazine praised him as “having a novelist’s sense of humanity.” The most recent album, PACO & THE MELODIC POLAROIDS, was 100% funded by his last Pledge Campaign.
