BandChristianBlues

My songs are derived from personal experiences and observations.Passion and love for music drive me as I strive to take the listener on an intimate musical journey. I have a style that is spontaneous yet well crafted with a free flowing feel.

Biography

I am a solo accoustic artist/singer songwriter who has been compared in style to Phil Keggy,Jimmy Page,Michael Card and Jim Croce. My vocals are similar to John Lennon and Bob Dylan yet very original. I also like to do blues with a strong S.R.V. and Clapton influence. I like to enjoy myself and I have a good sense of humor.I am self taught with over 30yrs of playing experience and I am very comfortable on stage solo or with other musicians.I am also happy when taking a supporting role as a backup musician since I do have a strong lead style on the electric guitar as well.

Why

WHY
Tom Black copyrights 4-8-04

WHY DOES IT HAVE TO BE THIS WAY..?

I THOUGHT THIS TIME WAS FOREVER.

WILL I EVER FIND MY PLACE

ON MY WAY TO HEAVEN..?

WHY DO WE HAVE SAY GOODBYES..?

TO OUR FRIENDS AND BROTHERS.

WHY DO WE MAKE EACH OTHER CRY,

AND BREAK THE HEART OF LOVERS.?

bridge:

WHY DOES THE SUN SET, IN CLOUDY SKYS..?

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW...

WHY

bridge:

WHY DO WE GIVE UP, AND REFUSE TO TRY..?

JUST WALK AWAY, AND WATCH OUR DREAMS DIE..,

I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW...

WHY
