Performing in bands from the age of 10 brought him to studying music in Gateshead college. 

He went on to study a BA Honours degree in popular music at Leeds Conservatoire, which is where he stayed on to

do a masters degree, specialising in composition and performance.
He has performed in some beautiful venues across the North East like Durham Cathedral, Newcastle City Hall

and The Sage Gateshead. 

Easton -'The guitar has always been my true passion. I have always gravitated  more towards the acoustic, focusing

a lot on the hybrid picking technique. I would say I have quite a modern playing style, originally being classically trained

but spending most  of my teenage years shredding the electric guitar (poorly) with lots of gruesome distortion

led to me forming a balance between the two. I'd say my music takes influence from quite a few genres,

forming the deranged but semi approachable offspring of prog rock, folk, neo-classical and jazz.'
