American songwriter Tim Easton was raised in Akron, Ohio.
Traveling early and otten, he leamed 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, Easton recorded an album for THIRTY TIGERS (Not Cool, 2013), which accented the stripped down Memphis & 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. Worldwide touring will follow.
Recenlly, Easton reached the milestone ot 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, Tennessee, on his personal YouTube channel.
Ross Adams is a singer-songwriter originally from Winston-Salem, NC. Ross meticulously weaves stories of loss, longing and hope all in the shadows of his two major influences, Justin Townes Earle and Bob Dylan. The artistic strain of his voice cries out for your ears and instead somehow takes your heart with him. His lyrics and voice meld together to form an honest, intricate and heartbroken autobiography, all the while retaining relatability to anyone lucky enough to notice. Ross’ clever and unique picking style is a refreshing burst onto the singer-songwriter scene. He has played a plethora of shows in Charlotte, NC and surrounding areas.
