The Truth About Us
Tim Easton Feb 21, 2019
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. https://timeaston1.bandcamp.com/album/exposition

Singing a song in the John & Yoko suite where they recorded “GIVE PEACE A CHANCE” 50 years ago here in Montreal. Thanks Yoko for all the positivity you bring to the world. #peace #bedpeace #johnandyoko #johnlennon #yokoono #campfirepropaganda #givepeaceachance #montreal #timothyleary. Thanks John Lennon too & Epiphone Guitars

I can't keep track of all the digital orders so I had to put it online! Enjoy a brand new album made in Okemah, San Antonio, & Clarksdale. Written, Produced, Performed, & Recorded by yours truly, with a little help from my daughter on a track or two https://timeaston1.bandcamp.com/album/exposition https://timeaston1.bandcamp.com/edit_album?id=3401919719

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 PledgeMusic.com 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.

Scored this analog Chinon CS plus telescope lens (not in pic) plus tripod for $15 at a Florida thrift store. Loaded it w/ some Black & White 400 speed film. Inspired by others, I will now begin the art for a whole new project that has the working title SINGS MY SONGS. What’s great about finishing one project is that it frees your mind up for something new. The paint isn’t even dry on the Folk Freakout that is EXPOSITION, and I’m off to the muses. The universe is is a big juicy oyster waiting to be shucked...unless it shucks you first. When you are not playing, be creating. Sometimes, if you want it to be so, you can be playing & creating at the same time. Go get some. #art #photography #analog #analogphotography #makeartnotwar #folkalliance #campfirepropaganda

Saturday, January 26th, in Adam Carpenter’s kitchen, Ft. Wayne, Indiana, the morning after I delivered the digital release of my new album, “EXPOSITION,” and right after reading the article in Billboard that said PLEDGE MUSIC was not able to pay any of its artists the money they were rightfully owed, on the very day they were supposed to pay me. I was a little upset, and I must thank Adam for helping me remain calm. I fully understand that there are people out in this big world with serious, life threatening problems. This hurts because I am a one man operation with no manager or lawyer to speak on my behalf, and I feel like I have been seriously taken advantage of. I do have my supporters though, which is comforting. I raised over 150% of the funds asked for to make this album and now I am going to have to borrow money from my own daughter’s savings account just to pay for the manufacturing of the merchandise, which was technically bought and paid for by my own supporters, who I thank very much for their patience as I work through this problem, which is just a minor bump in the road compared to the problems that thieves and liars run up against in this world. I will deliver what I promised to deliver, and work hard to pay the money back to my daughter’s college fund. The real kicker is that Adam Carpenter, who took this photograph, is one of my Pledgers, and I had just played his parent’s surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary party AND he already knew the new tunes since downloading the album the day before when Pledge asked me to upload the album- fulling knowing they weren’t going to be able to pay me the money that was promised upon delivery of said master recording. It’s somewhat disheartening because Crowdfunding companies like Pledge, who I have used twice before, are perfect for independent artists like myself who don’t want a lot of interference between their art and those that wish to experience it, so when even that corner of the music business rears it’s dishonest head, one wants to just fully retreat. Of course, I can never stop writing songs, but I can only feel it’s a sign that I must regroup my thoughts and go back to the beginning once again. I’ll start by canceling any release dates I had in mind and re-scheduling any release date shows. Thanks for your patience. I’m counting on Pledge to hold true to their promise and deliver the money within 90 days, after which I will retract this entire note and offer my encouragement as they re-build their company and brand, but for now I have to carry on and make a living in order to pay my rent and bills, and it will not be easy. I wish them the same peace of mind that I wish for myself. “Exposition” remains a unique, field recording style album that was made while traveling through Okemah, San Antonio, and Clarksdale. It will always be special to me and I will always own 100% of the rights to it, which is something I can’t say about some of my other records. If you want the digital version check in with me at TimEaston.com. I will personally email the tracks. There’s a fire under me to make many more albums, and so the work begins again in earnest. #campfirepropaganda

‪I made a stripped down folk album called EXPOSITION in Okemah, OK, San Antonio, TX, & Clarksdale, MS recording ten songs of redemption & hope. Digital release arrives Jan 25 to those who Pledge before that date. Vinyl later. #CampfirePropaganda thanks all friends & family for their support of independent art.

BOOKING AGENT WANTED for hard working troubadour from Akron, Ohio. I have certainly had a few different sounds & looks over the years and while my influences have always been rooted in the old American music, I’ve no doubt changed it up throughout my albums & can write songs & tell stories & entertain with the best of my peers & then some. I now own 5 of my masters while @newwestrecords own the rest. I’m walking a different path today. I’ll let my actions & work speak for me. I write every day & I need somebody to help me manage the road. Write me at TimEaston.com #campfirepropaganda #TimEastonTour

Cheryl Graham of Woodyfest snapped these photos of me at work in the Okemah Pop Up Studio a few weeks back. I had such a blast traveling & recording. The EXPOSITION LP, being mastered in Cleveland now, is completely between me & you. No money will be spent on music business marketing outside of posting. Also, THIS ALBUM WILL NOT BE STREAMABLE on Spotify, Youtube, iTunes. If you want it, you have to get it from me. There are a few days left to pre-order, thanks to all friends & family for supporting truly independent art. The fact is, we are dependent on each other. Very proud to share this work, but I am in fact a small business owner, and I am grateful for all of you who came through the door to check out what I am baking over here. Link in comments. TE

2018 was 137 shows, 10 countries, including Europe, Japan, plus 2 tours of Alaska. I traveled over 70,000 miles. On the last thousand mile journey I recorded a whole new album in 3 separate locations & had my portrait captured by the Oklahoma based photographer Chris Zahller, which will be used for the cover for this new record, called “EXPOSITION.” Chris brought his wooden large-format folding field camera that uses a 150-year-old lens & x-ray film, and set up shop in the Okfuskee County Historical Society to capture this portrait. Check comments for link that has an interview we did on site plus more black & white film photos from the Okemah sessions. I couldn’t make any of these journeys without the support of fellow artists & worldwide live music supporters. There were so many great days & nights. It was a very productive year for me. Here’s to a positive and soul fortifying 2019, with all the love we have to give.

Many thanks to Calton Cases in Austin, Texas for returning Paco The Gibson J-45’s old flight case. I hope to use it for my new Homestead Guitar some day. Grateful to be recording at The Shack Up Inn outside Clarksdale, Mississippi in my third “Exposition” Pop-Up Studio. #recording #songwriter #troubadour #guitarded #campfireprooaganda #americanamusic
