Hello...it's Tim Easton from the HAYNES BOYS
I just spoke with J.P. OLSEN in New York and he suggested
I write to you and keep you up on the news about HAYNES
and BURN BARREL (the new band with the haynes gang
up J.P. and his excellent songs).
Well...there's not too much going on with the
directly. We're still playing about the state and
but no real plans to record. The fact is, we don't
record deal right now. As you may know Jovan (the
has another band called GAUNT which is on WARNER BROS.
so he is pretty busy with that. The last time we were
studio as a band was as BURN BARREL and it seems to
be a pretty
good thing. I'm listening to the mastered CD right
it sounds damn good. J.P. OLSEN is a songwriting machine...
just last week he was at my place in Columbus and
down 8 more songs on my four track. Apparently he
one last night that is also brilliant. I guess it
was one of
those pure moments where you can't sleep because this
in your head so you just have to get out of bed and
down. I more or less live for those moments myself.
J.P. may have mentioned to you that I just finished
my first solo record in Nashiville. I have just a
more mixing to do and it should be ready to print
by the end
of the month. I recorded it with BRAD JONES (same
guy on it
plus SEAN BEAL from BIG BACK 40, AL PERKINS (dobro,
legend who played with the stones and gram parsons)
a couple more great session players. I'll be getting
it over to you
just as soon as it's finished. Any advise about distribution
in Germany would be greatly appreciated.
The official release date is July 28th but I should
be able to
get you the record by June at the latest. I'll include
manager's address and information plus my address
number if you have any questions or suggestions.
Until then...taKE care...
