Tim Easton is a Nashville, Tennessee-based American guitarist and singer-songwriter playing rock and roll, folk and Americana music.


Easton was raised in Akron, Ohio, forming the band Kosher Spears while at college.[1] He traveled abroad for a time, busking in London, Paris, Spain, Italy, Yugoslavia, Czechoslovakia, and Ireland, and on his return to the US in the mid-1990s he joined the Haynes Boys and the band released their only cd, Guardian Angel in 1996. 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.[1] He currently resides in Nashville, TN.

In 2007, Easton joined Leeroy Stagger and Evan Phillips, performing as Easton, Stagger, Phillips. Easton and Stagger initially performed in 2008 as support acts for Phillips' band The Whipsaws.[2][3] The group released one album One For The Ditch, on Rebeltone Records, in 2008.[4] Their second album (Resolution Road) will be released in 2014.[needs update][5]

Easton was nominated for the 9th Annual Independent Music Awards Vox Pop award for 'Best Americana Song' with "Burgundy Red".[6] His album won the 9th Annual Independent Music Awards Vox Pop vote for best Album Packaging.[7]

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.”[8] On June 23, 2015 the Haynes Boys released their record Guardian Angel on vinyl and kicked off a series of shows together on June 25, 2015 in Columbus, Ohio, culminating with a scheduled June 28 show at #Comfest, the annual community festival in Columbus.

Cold and Bitter Tears: The Songs of Ted Hawkins, released in late 2015 on Austin-based Eight 30 Records, features Easton's recording of Hawkins' song "One Hundred Miles."
