MP3: Daily Life
Tim Easton’s been representing Columbus at SXSW for many, many years. While the traveling songwriter hasn’t called Columbus his permanent home in quite a while (currently he lives outside of Joshua Tree, California), we’ll still happily claim him as one of our own.
Those of you attending SXSW this year will have plenty of opportunities to hear material from Easton’s latest record, Beat the Band, which won’t hit stores and on-line retailers until March 29. The singer will be appearing numerous times with his backing band, The Freelan Barons, featuring Mark Stepro (drums, Ben Kweller) and Aaron Lee Tasjan (guitar & piano, Madison Square Gardeners) and Alex Livingstone (bass, Grand Champeen) throughout this week in Austin with plans of hitting the road this summer.
