      To celebrate thirty years of traveling with and writing songs on his black Gibson J-45 acoustic guitar named ”Paco," Nashville based songwriter Tim Easton recorded an entire album DIRECT TO LACQUER at The Earnest Tube Studio in Bristol, Virginia. This performance based method of capturing songs leaves no room for manipulation or overdubbing, therefore conjuring the roots of American Music. Each track was recorded via portable lathe which cuts a mono signal directly to a lacquer acetate disc, much the way The Carter Family or Jimmie Rodgers would have made their first records in Bristol over 90 years ago. In as much time as it takes to listen, Easton recorded nine original songs and one cover using a single 1940’s RCA 74B ribbon microphone, alternating between the rapid fire flat- picking and steady Travis-style thumb picking technique that he has been streamlining all these years, coupled with his Country Blues style rack harmonica playing. The occasional foot stomp can be heard as well, vibrating through the floors. Easton sings songs from the personal experiences and observations of man who has spent a few decades on the road. His folk music is not always the gentle kind. His authenticity is pervasive. This is what the tradition of the troubadour sounds like.

      This LP serves as a love letter of sorts to Easton’s trusty Gibson acoustic guitar, which he purchased in 1987 for one hundred dollars plus two cheap electric guitars on trade. Leaving Ohio and exploring Europe on and off for seven years, Easton traveled extensively by train, bus, and thumb, learning to write songs along the way. Soon after a Deadhead in Paris named his guitar “Paco,” Easton made his very first recordings just a short walk away from the Charles Bridge in Prague, where he had been busking in the Summer after Czechoslovakia’s Velvet Revolution. After returning Stateside and signing with EMI Music Publishing, he released several critically acclaimed albums with both New West Records and Thirty Tigers. His last album, 2016’s American Fork (LAST CHANCE RECORDS), reached #11 on the Americana Music Association Radio Charts. Easton continues to travel the world and perform while also delving into film score work done at his home studio in Nashville. He has scored two feature documentaries, “The Power Of Two” (2012), and “The Bullish Farmer” (2017) and also placed original songs in film and television.
