Tiny Town Video Features Singer/Songwriter Tim Easton
(The Tiny Town Concert Series is a collaboration between Hoboken Coffee Roasters, the City of Guthrie Tourism Office, The Visual Brain, and KOSU/The Spy. Each month the Tiny Town crew releases a new music video recorded at Hoboken Coffee Roasters in Guthrie, OK.)
Tim Easton stopped in Guthrie recently for a house concert and video shoot, and both of those things sure were a good time. The video for "Peace of Mind" gives you an idea of what to expect from his fantastic new album Exposition. Check out Tim's music and tour schedule here.
"After moving to Nashville and starting his own label, CAMPFIRE PROPAGANDA, Easton teamed with THIRTY TIGERS to release the Memphis blues- based “Not Cool,” in 2013. “American Fork” came out with LAST CHANCE RECORDS in 2015, and the DIRECT TO LACQUER, folk-based “PACO & THE MELODIC POLAROIDS” in 2018 was released on Campfire Propaganda, followed by tours of North America, Japan, Alaska, and Europe, performing at the annual SALMONFEST in Ninilchik, Alaska and WOODYFEST in Okemah, Oklahoma. June of 2019 brings the “EXPOSITION” LP, a field recording partly recorded in Okemah, Oklahoma."
"These are modern field recordings which deal with trying to find peace of mind in modern times. There are certain upheavals occurring in my life and my country. I traveled to three locations that are important in American music history, installed a pop-up recording studio, and recorded everything myself. First I went to the Okfuskee County Historical Society in Okemah, Oklahoma, birthplace of of Woody Guthrie. Then I recorded at The Gunter Hotel in San Antonio, Texas, where Robert Johnson had once recorded. Lastly, I tracked a few songs at The Shack-Up Inn, Clarksdale, Mississippi, close to where Muddy Waters was born. This is a contemporary folk album, with songs covering a lot of personal themes and geography."
