In the tradition of the great American storytellers, Easterling sings of the struggles, the resilience, perseverance, and courage of the human spirit in Stumbling Towards The Light, Scars and Don't Cry For Me. Easterling accomplishes this without being preachy or judgmental, but rather from the eyes of a fellow traveler.
"In Nashville, there's nothing a songwriter likes better than a co-writer with a broken heart. You can really mine that for great stuff. That said, I've been going through some major life changes so I've had my own stuff to mine lately. In the process of writing these songs I discovered, for the umpteenth time, that life is about facing change and embracing it.
As this new album began to come into focus, it dawned on me that I'd been writing songs about my own transitions - some good, like kicking the smokes and the booze, some happy times and some sad goodbyes ... songs about people coming and going, songs about living and one or two about dying. I must say, Goodbye-Hello is the most personal album I 've recorded to date."
Where This River Goes
"Wyatt Easterling writes songs which transport you to a familiar feeling, or a good memory from the past. That’s what good songwriting does. It speaks to each of us in a familiar and friendly way. Wyatt has figured out a way to capture that in music and lyric. Listen to his songs, you’ll be glad you did."
