In a town like Nashville, you can't toss a pebble 2 feet without hitting a singer-songwriter, and yet there are those who stand out from the rest with their knack for catchy songwriting and great instrumentation. Tim Easton is one of those that rise above the crowd.

Originally from Akron, Ohio, Tim Easton developed his musical chops busking throughout Europe and playing with the Kosher Spears, the Haynes Boys and Easton Stagger Phillips. Easton's songs tread along a path made from rock, alternative, folk and blues, taking the best aspects of his influences and blending them into a unique sound that gives a solid nod to his musical heroes without imitating them.

Easton dropped into the KDHX studios with fiddler and vocalist Megan Palmer, of the Spikedrivers and the Hopefuls, to play a few tunes from his 2013 release "Not Cool." Easton describes "Not Cool" as "kind of a 50′s, Sun Studio thing, kind of a rock and roll thing."

Sam Phillips would have cut off his right arm to have these tunes in the catalog beside Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley and the rest.
