The Spring Standards are an energetic force of three-part harmony circling over a rock n' roll sound with an old country aftertaste. From small towns to big cities, they explode on stage with spirit, spontaneity, and a style all their own. They are, in no particular order: James Cleare, James Smith and Heather Robb. Each member of the band is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, and they use their strengths as a trio to create a sound that listeners might expect from a band twice their size. With an emphasis on three-part harmony and a variety of instrumental switching, their range and energy make each live show a unique event.

Like the bristly critter of its title, Tim Easton’s album Porcupine has some spikes in its hindquarters. And the Ohio-born, Joshua Tree, California-based singer-songwriter says the primarily aggressive style of the record was definitely by design. “I wanted to make some noise again,” Easton explains. “I’d been making some sonically conservative albums out here in California, with a little less of that Midwestern bite that was part of the sound I had been making with my band when I was growing up.” Easton describes Porcupine – his fourth New West Records album, succeeding The Truth About Us (2001), Break Your Mother’s Heart (2003), and Ammunition (2006) -- as “not a ‘coming full circle’ kind of thing, but more the center point of a figure-8 where I am passing back through on my way to many other directions.” The collection reunites him with producers Brad Jones and Robin Eaton, who played an important role in the early stages of his recording career.
