I was introduced to Tim Easton back in 2002 when he opened for the great John Hiatt, on an evening that turned out to be my first date with my husband. We will be celebrating our tenth wedding anniversary next week... and ten years of enjoying Tim Easton’s music. We’ve seen him live a couple times since (though not lately, come back to western MA, Tim!). His performances are very special; I encourage you to explore Tim Easton’s music and see him live if you have the opportunity.
Here’s what Tim says about his music in connection his recently-released retrospective, Before The Revolution:
“I like my rock and roll to have a little porch-party in it and I like my folk music to have some distortion. That’s been a constant in all of my records. I am grateful that I get to make them with such amazing artists and friends. If you hear a story or a lyric that rings true or makes you happy or sad, I’m glad I got the job done for you. My revolution was recorded. Thanks for listening.”

I do hope you’ll browse around on Tim Easton’s website and listen to some of his music on YouTube. I think you’ll be glad you did. Be inspired, link up your (new) poem in the Mr. Linky below, and I look forward to reading your writing, as always.
