Taft Performs Mellow Music


Late last year, Austin-based musician Taft Mashburn stopped by our Firmin-Garner Performance Studio when he was in Fayetteville for a house concert at Homestead Recording. Going by simply Taft on-stage, his sparse, spacey style is unique. He spoke with us about his unique styling, and he also performed a few songs while he was here.

Timothy is a life-long Arkansan; he grew up in the hills outside of Winslow and has lived throughout northwest and western Arkansas. As a budding musician in his formative years, he became enthralled with recording technology, which carried over into his collegiate studies of print and multimedia journalism at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Upon receiving his degree in journalism in 2011, Timothy immediately began working as a freelance reporter and photographer for the Washington County Observer in West Fork, Winslow and Greenland. It wasn't long before he left the newspaper business for radio and began working full-time as an announcer and news programmer for KURM AM/FM in Rogers.
