Tim Easton was raised in Akron, Ohio, and 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. When the band split up, he embarked on a solo career, with his debut album, Special 20, released in 1998. He subsequently relocated to California, signed a deal with EMI Publishing, and a record deal with New West Records. He currently lives in Nashville, Tennessee.
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. The group released one album One for the Ditch (2008). Their second album (Resolution Road was released this year.
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.”
“The cool thing about Catfish Concerts is that it really has the feel of when I was a kid in South Austin, except you guys are way too calm and take it way to seriously.” – John Townes Van Zandt II
“Catfish Concerts is among the most intimate, friendly, inspired and inspirational house concerts in the country and most likely the world. It’s like hanging out with your favorite folks in a treehouse built by your favorite uncle, the one who paints and write poems all day. I’ll tell you what I think Catfish is: a genuine piece of heaven that you can touch with your hands while you drink good local beer and listen to great songs. Thank you, Jenni and Brian, for creating such a space and event.” – Walt Wilkins
