Presented by Mother Hen Touring:
Nashville songwriter Tim Easton grew up in Ohio. He spent 7 years as a bonafide troubadour on the the streets of Europe, living in Paris, London, Prague, Dublin, before returning to the States to record 5 acclaimed albums for New West Records. The first of those records, The Truth About Us, featured 3/4 of Wilco as his backing band.
Easton’s songs tell the stories of his life, traveling and of those he has met along the way. They have also earned him tour invitations from Lucinda Williams (who also sings on his album Ammunition), John Hiatt, Steve Earle and others. He recently reached the 100 Published Songs milestone and celebrated that by posting 100 performance videos on 100 consecutive days.
Rolling Stone Magazine praised Easton as “having a novelist’s sense of humanity.”
Easton will be touring his new album American Fork (out via his own label Campfire Propaganda) here in Australia and for most of the tour he will be co-headlining with Western Australia’s Davey Craddock who will also be introducing his debut album City West out through MGM Distribution on Feb 5th.
