Stop the World
Eaton is one of the freshest voices in Americana, bringing an optimistic, thoughtful perspective to the triple A genre. How invigorating it is to hear classic rock with substance. If Eaton's sound is retro - think Bruce Springsteen (without the histrionics), Tom Petty, Bob Dylan - it's not that he's trying to. He is simply being himself, avoiding the gimmicks of modern rock for timeless appeal. Unlike many of today's roots rockers, Eaton's view of the world isn't one of dust and despair. Eaton's songs are emotional and touch on themes that many will immediately identify with. His life experience, which has included living close to the razors edge, comes across in his music. Eaton shares through honest expression, the spirit of his personal journey. Eaton's debut EP, Wish You Were Here, was nothing if not inspiring. His latest LP release, Stop the World, includes all of the tracks on Wish You Were Here and adds 4 new tracks that are arguably his best with the title track being a sure hit. Whether you allow yourself to be swept away by the rolling drums and the airy guitars or opt for the cerebral experience of Eaton's narrative lyrics, you will find yourself in this collection. Eaton represents a new breed of artists who have found a way to blend faith and music in such a way that the songs can appeal to anyone who can understand the failures and triumphs of the human experience. When Eaton sings about his life, we can see the reflection in our own. This music is written from his soul and guaranteed to find yours.
