As a resident of the Arizona desert, Inda Eaton has no problem drawing lyrical inspiration from the space and land that surrounds her.
In her music, Eaton makes numerous references to the land, the cities and the life in the desert. She is a California native but left the crowded area and transplanted to the more spacious Arizona. On her fifth album, Why the Desert, the Melissa Etheridge influence blows through her earthy lyrics. Her music is a rough fusion of nature and song.
Eaton’s acoustic guitar presence is like peaceful, rainy pitter-patter hidden behind her dry, edgy rock sound and husky voice.
Eaton’s lyrics continually refer to the elements of nature that define the scenery around Phoenix.
Eaton’s melodic interest sways from being a Kiss fan to a great appreciation of Elton John, who she says is an influence on her current style of music, according to a Skin to the Wind Records press release. Skin to the Wind Records is a small, independent Arizona-based label. Eaton is currently its featured artist.
