Bow Thayer has been singing and writing songs for as long as he can remember. Bow made a name for himself in Boston with 7 League Boots, a rock/reggae band that shared the stage with the likes of Fugazi, The Mighty Might Bosstones, and Pearl Jam. Bow’s music is always evolving—from luscious backwoods folk rock to the sonic exploration of his last album of all original material, Sundowser, that was co-produced and engineered by three-time Grammy winner Justin Guip (Levon Helm) and crafted on an instrument Bow created–the Bojotar–in a studio he built with his own hands. American songwriter Tim Easton was born in upstate New York, right across the river from Canada, his Mother’s home country.  He grew up in Akron, Ohio and spent three years living in Tokyo because of his father’s job at Goodyear Tire. Traveling early and often, he learned the ways of the road and rails and spent 7 years as a bonafide troubadour, making his way around Europe, playing the streets and clubs-living in Paris, London, Prague, Dublin, or wherever he laid his hat. It was this period of time when he developed his songwriting style-folk based storytelling and personal traveling tales, often peppered with bold confessions or “tell it as is” reality.  Rolling Stone Magazine praised him as “having a novelist’s sense of humanity.” This is part of the Live at 5 Concert Series in downtown Talkeetna.
