The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


Currently recording the LP- Wet Blanket (working title). The songs "Much At All" and "Bloomfield" are to be featured in a film by Marjorie Lewit in a Summer 2008 film festival.



Tom IS the band. Consider the sound a mix between the clarity of Billy Bragg, the powerful drive and energy of Ted Leo, and throw in a healthy mix of Galaxie 500 style art-rock, and you're headed in the right direction. Never one to be pigeon-holed into writing a predictable song, no stone is outside the reach of being turned for song ideas.

Never quite made it to college. Instead, joined the Army, a Sentinel at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery for 3 years, and then back to civilian life. A unique perspective on the soldier's life, and dissent required to inspire politically charged songs, as well as a healthy dose of melodramatic love stories.
