Easy Street Records

Eric Brace and Thomm Jutz have just made their debut album. A curious fact, given they've played a few hundred shows together over the past decade, and have recorded five records together in the company of their musical comrade Peter Cooper. But with 'Simple Motion', Eric and Thomm launch the next leg of their varied and impressive careers. They each made their way to Nashville more than 20 years ago. Eric from Washington D.C. with his acclaimed root-rock band Last Train Home. In Nashville he launched the Red Beet Records label, and began a prolific and acclaimed duo with songwriter Peter Cooper. Thomm arrived from his home in Germany after dreaming for years of Nashville, and quickly became a much awarded songwriter and producer. After producing two albums for Eric and Peter, Thomm joined the duo, and the new trio gave the world two stellar albums, 'Profiles in Courage, Frailty, and Discomfort', and 'Riverland'. When Peter Cooper died in December, 2022, the music world lost one of it's brightest and best. For Thomm and Eric the question before them as 2023 dawned was: "What next?" And the answer came easily: Make music. And so they did. The resulting 14 tracks on 'Simple Motion' resonate with the joy of being alive blended with the deep blue of loss that we have all felt these past few years.
