Skip Eaton has been writing and performing music his entire life. He won the 1982 Nashville New faces award and has opened shows for Neil Diamond, The Association, Johnny Paycheck, and Billy Jo Spears.
Skip has recorded numerous albums. His first CD, Free & Easy, contains all original material that he composed, arranged, and performed himself. Popular cuts off the album include Lady in Black and When it’s Over. His latest blues CD, Nuthin’ Ventured, Nuthin’ Gained, is also all original material with popular songs like Rollin’ Thunder.
Skip has worked with many bands over the years. Among his favorites are The Red Dogs out of Lawrence, Kansas, Northwall out of Brookings, South Dakota, Affinity in Phoenix, AZ., Soul’d Out Trio with Alfredo Alvarenga and Rob Edwards in Las Vegas, NV, and The Pete Contino Band also in Las Vegas. Skip wrote three songs on the Pete Contino Band’s Push It CD.
Skip also worked with Bar Room Logic, a group of musicians that acted as Neal Sedaka’s back up band. When not backing Neal, Skip fronted the band as singer and lead guitarist.
Skip genuinely enjoys playing music for people. His performance style is casual and chatty and between sets he is usually found talking with the people who have come to hear him play.
As a one-man-band most of the time, Skip plays to prerecorded tracks. Setting himself apart from most other performers who use backing tracks is the fact that Skip arranges, performs, and records all of the tracks himself. This personal touch creates a unique experience of your favorite songs.
Lovers of music will immediately recognize the incredible talent, warmth, and personality that emanates from Skip Eaton.
