Born on Vancouver Island, the youngest of three boys, North started writing songs as an escape from his older brothers with his mother (his inspiration) forbidding the older boys to pick on him when he practiced piano. It’s no surprise that North traded great grades for blisters and early music accomplishments - Winner of 106.9 The Bear’s Rock Search; $100,000 in NEWCAP Radio’s Big Money Shot; Indie Pop Album of The Year with his band Garrity; Winner of Song of the Year.com for best country song; International Songwriting Competition 2014 Semi Finalist (TURN) and 2015 Finalist (LOVE LIKE THAT). North’s songs have also been featured in independent films and placed in US syndicated television.
North is a massive participant and contributor to the future of the song-writing community as Ottawa Co-ordinator for the Songwriter’s Association of Canada (SAC); Founding member and one of 8 prominent songwriters in The Collabor8tors a Canadian song-writing initiative; Ottawa Curator for The Acoustic Guitar Project, a global song-writing initiative. His dedication to inspiring and developing songs and careers for established & emerging artists is tireless.
North Easton is an accomplished performer and award-winning Canadian songwriter with an aptitude for writing evocative, thought-provoking lyrics and melodies. This, coupled with his powerful, heartfelt vocals, delivers a listening and visual experience that is uniquely North Easton. On October 15, 2016 North released his first solo album “One of the Lucky Ones” to an enthusiastic full house in Ottawa. As his first single “Change” builds momentum on AC radio, North looks to the road and to performing at festivals and eclectic venues across the country - all the while, igniting his audiences along the path.
"I can’t say I recall taking in a performance quite like this before. Where the stories were as important as, maybe even more important, than the music itself. North has a gift for telling tales."
