FREE SONG ALERT: Greetings from an Alabama Highway Hotel, where I am writing about a song I recorded in a Mississippi hotel. Every week for ten weeks I will write a few words about one of the songs from my “Exposition,” album. TRACK 10 from EXPOSITION: “BROKEN BRAIN” This isn’t the first time I recorded this song. I gave it a shot on the Paco & The Melodic Polaroids LP but it didn’t seem to thematically fit that album so I pulled it. Then, when I set out to make Exposition, I recorded it in every location that I used to make the album. I did it once in Okemah, once in Texas, and then a few times in Clarksdale, Mississippi at The Shack-Up Inn. I did it as a country blues, then Delta slide… and still wasn’t quite satisfied. The version in the video (link in comments) is a delta slide version from Bin #5 at the Shack-Up Inn, but the version on the Exposition album link is from a few takes after that when I used an Open C tuning and did some Travis picking. I also had a mic on my foot stomping and then overdubbed some percussive thigh slapping on the instrumental break. “Broken Brain” is a basic country-blues tune that can be played in any style, and so I will break into it at a live show in whatever key or mode I wish. It’s a simple song that remains alive and moving, and I use it to bring some humor to a set. The opening line, which mentions Todd Snider, has been cleared by the man himself. The whole notion of the song came from a conversation that the Memphis songwriter Cory Branan and I had where he told me that he hated when people rhymed the word “brain” in a song. I therefore wrote a tune where it was rhymed in every verse. I used it to close off the album because I wanted something a little lighter hearted to wrap up a more serious folk album. Enjoy, and keep in touch. Tim Easton Extended Stay America, Birmingham, Alabama May 14th, 2019

Do you want to sign up for 2020's CAMPFIRE PROPAGANDA SONGWRITING WORKSHOP in HOMER, ALASKA for next March? Read the quick summary of how it went in Ketchikan just two months back, and you'll see it takes a simple notion that you want to create something new.

I wouldn't call my music strictly Blues, not by a long shot, but I understand this music. I studied it, and still do. I love the Country Blues especially, and this is an example of my take on it, plus a little Travis picking & harmonica. This clip is from a show in The Netherlands, where I will soon return to pick up a new HOMESTEAD GUITAR before heading South to Belgium to play PEER BLUES FESTIVAL in JULY.
Tim Easton May 04, 2019
Belgium! See you in July at Peer Blues Festival. And Holland too, where I will pick up my new HOMESTEAD GUITARS acoustic. Stay tuned fir other Euro Summer dates. #belgium #blues #peerbluesfestival #peerbluesfestival2019

I was walking through Juneau when I decided to write a Woody Guthrie style tune about the Pebble Mine-a destructive project that corporations still want to build near Alaska’s Bristol Bay, despite the extremely negative consequences. This mine would undoubtedly destroy rivers that are the spawning home to wild Salmon & in general ruin the precious ecosystem there. My Father & I have fished the rivers that would be damaged. All I’m asking you to do here is share this post and/or write a quick note to Senator Lisa Murkowski -asking her to end the corrupt Environmental Impact Statement process. Thanks for participating. @senlisamurkowski @sendansullivan @repdonyoung @salmonfest @woodyguthriecenter #nopebblemine #savebristolbay #alaska #pebblemine #bristolbay #fishing #salmon #woodyguthrie #environmentalimpactstudy #wildsalmon #song #folksong #vote film by Cloey Walsh made in Talkeetna on 4/11/19

This album embraces resistance, for that is a path where you can avoid the racket and keep the Spirit Of Creativity alive. There will always be the persistent voices of the critics and those who tell you to turn around, while none will be louder than the one from inside the creator, so we take care to ignore that critic and carry on to make something new. This album belongs to you and I.

CDs have arrived like it’s 1999, vinyl here for official release in May. This is the first album that features my kid playing a part. So fun. Incredible to record an album and have it ready to distribute so quickly, but doing it any other way seems silly. Digital is here & I stayed up late stuffing envelopes so all supporters will get their copies right as I am landing in Montreal for Folk Alliance. If you want a CD or DIGITAL DOWNLOAD, write me & I will sort you out. Vinyl, shirts, etc come in May. Thanks for supporting independent art & music. There is ONE EMPLOYEE(and one young intern) at Campfire Propaganda Records & Books. I love my job. TE, on the road again.
