After playing around the South Plains as an acoustic act, releasing both an EP and a full-length LP, Ronnie Eaton teamed up with Derek Guthrie (guitar, vocals), Byron Mason (bass, vocals), Aaron Dick (keyboard, vocals), and Terry Moore (drums) to create Ronnie Eaton and the Cold, Hard Truth.
After releasing his debut album, “The Moth Complex,” Eaton decided it was time expand his sounds: “I think as a musician, or artist, or creator, your goal should to be to always improve and expand on what you create, and with this band, we are definitely doing that. Playing with these guys not only makes me a better musician, but a better writer as well.”
Ronnie Eaton and the Cold, Hard Truth are currently playing shows in West Texas and Eastern New Mexico. Their first album as a full band, “What If We Are Ghosts,” will be released on Friday, February 27. Digital copies of the album will be available in late March. Ronnie Eaton’s solo album, “The Moth Complex,” is available at Ralph’s Records in Lubbock, TX; Hastings Entertainment in Lubbock, TX; at live shows; and online at iTunes and most major online retailers.
