June 15, 2009: I'm getting lots of great press, including being named a top pick by Oxford American! Here's what they said:
"Angela Easterling, we now know, is a quietly plaintive singer who
rewards attentive listening. Her BlackTop Road, with its mandolins,
dobros, lap steels, peddle steels, fiddles, etc., is out-and-out "alt.
country," a genre no longer in vogue but still kicking. A lot of the
songs here sound like they've been around for years—that's a
compliment—including the sweetly yearning cover of a certain Wannabe
Southern Man's "Helpless." Produced by the agile and sensitive Will
April 30, 2009: Just added lots of new photos to the Gallery and Media Kit! Also tons of new shows, check the Calendar or my myspace page www.myspace.com/easterling for most current listing.
April 28, 2009: We've done some redecorating! Much thanks to madmantics for the awesome redesign of my site. I am still busy doing updates and in the next few days will be adding a new bio and new pix to both the media kit sections as well as bio and gallery pages. All in preparation for the release of my new CD BlackTop Road!
CD Summer Release
March 18, 2009: I am busy getting ready for the summer release of my new CD, BlackTop Road, produced by Will Kimbrough and featuring some fantastic musicians. In January, I went back to Nashville to do some touch-up recording, mix and master. I also did a photo shoot with amazing NC photographer Coke Whitwoth. He is such a talent and was my first choice, so glad I got to work with him. We shot at my family's farm on Hammett Bridge Rd. The results were stunning and Eva Crawford, who did such a wonderful job designing my last CD, is hard at work on the package and poster. If you'd like to see some photos and hear some select tracks, click on the "Music" page to be directed to where they are. Check back soon for more info about the release and tour!
Believe it or not, I am also prepping for another new CD, which I hope to record this fall. It is a very exciting project with my dear friend, Marianne Bessy. Ms. Bessy is a native of France, has a Phd and is a professor of French at Furman University. We have been working on a group of songs (entirely in French) together and are almost finished writing at this point. I'm really thrilled about this and can't wait to start recording.

February 10, 2008: My cousin Mike hipped me to this website www.freerice.com. You answer vocabulary word questions and for every one you get right, 20 grains of rice are donated to the hungry. The rice is paid for by the advertising on the page. So if you've got a few extra minutes online, check it out. It's fun and kind of addicitve.
