BRAND NEW GUITAR: When I was a teenager hanging out at the Akron Music Center trying to play the Deep River Blues, the salesman told me that if I kept playing like that some day a guitar company would build me my own model. That dream came true today with the Netherlands based @homesteadguitars company who works closely with Indonesian luthiers to build their amazing guitars using Javanese Rosewood, Adirondack AAA, Mahogany, ebony, & abalone. My specific model has my initials in the headstock & a Mother Of Pearl raven on the 12th Fret. Thanks Robin & Albert & everyone at Homestead Guitars for making this dream happen. I’ve never been so happy jet lagged in my life! All that, and the doctor just called from Nashville to say the biopsy was negative. It’s a big day in Holland. #peace #love #guitars #songs #positivity #campfirepropaganda

CRITICAL BITCH # 19 I’ve spent the last week on the road listening to the songs of Nashville based songwriter @amyblaschke Her catalog is expansive, and narrowing it down to one song is quite difficult for me. Most recently, she has been recording with the producer @joshgrange who also plays pedal steel in @sherylcrow ’s band. Her style is not so easily defined. Several records ago, when she was recording in Seattle, there was a distinct Elliott Smith vibe, which is of course very magnetic to all of us songwriters of the lonesome school variety, but today she carves her own path somewhere in the vicinity between indie chanteuse & Modern Folk & Country crooner, with more unpredictable arrangements & production style, a magical & relaxed vibrato, & a penchant for stacked harmonies when you might not expect it. Then there is the new album recorded with Josh that has yet to be released. Then there are the new demos & songs we have been working on together. I have actually never met anybody as prolific as Amy, and I am friends with @leeroystagger , who is also fucking amazing by the way! Amy Blaschke is artistically unpredictable & lovely & incredible & yes I am quite biased (!). I look forward to introducing her to you @comfest365 in Columbus, Ohio tonight where perhaps we may sing a @townesvanzandtofficial song. For now, find her on @spotify & dig the collection. #songwriter @folk_alliance @americanafest @americansongwritermagazine

SHORT POST ON TRACK #9 from EXPOSITION https://www.timeaston.com/Journal/ArticleID/211/YOU-YOUR-TROUBLESOME-FRIENDS includes SONG
Tim Easton May 14, 2019
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
