I am a drummer and songwriter. I have some unique songs that I think would be great additions to our business.

Biography

Tom D

I believe that there are many great songs that need to find a way to be able to touch an audience. There are so many talented musicians (much more than me) with music that possibly can be brought into discovery. My hope for myself, is to find the right person in our music business, and that one of these songs will speak to them in such a way that they find the perfect outlet for that particular style. In fact, when I was told one of these songs brought a family to tears as they were moving from their long-time family home, I became compelled to pursue this dream and hope that the above can become reality - not only for me but for everyone.
Tom Donnohue was born in Duluth, Minnesota. His Irish father worked as a concrete truck driver and his Italian mother was a library assistant. He has one younger sister. As a 16-year-old student at Duluth high school, Tom began playing the drums with " Thrust Band " , performing throughout northern Minnesota.
Tom has a great enthusiasm for life. "Get involved," he says. "Have compassion toward other, be responsible for yourself and go for it. If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you have always gotten."
His musical idols are The Beatles. "Few have been as influential," he says. However, he loves not only The Beatles, R & B and Blues, but many music styles. "I'm interested in creating music with a new twist...naturally fusing different influences to make something unique."

Tom also has a deep respect for the people that support the music, "Without the people that enjoy what we're doing, it would be a lonely life."

Happened to think about you

Written By: Tom Donnohue

HAPPENED TO THINK ABOUT YOU

TIME HAS MARCHED ON LIFE HAS BEEN FINE
IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE I’VE SEEN YOU
WAY BACK WHEN WE SPLIT SEEMED I’D NEVER GET OVER IT
BUT LIFE HAS GONE ON WITHOUT YOU

I’VE LIVED MOST OF MY DREAMS
REWARDING IT SEEMS
STILL WONDERING HOW WITHOUT YOU
RIGHT NOW I FEEL HAPPY SOMETIMES I FEEL SAD
REMEMBERING THINGS ABOUT YOU

IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME SINCE YOU WERE MINE
THINKING OF MY WORLD WITHOUT YOU
TIME HAS MARCHED ON LIFE HAS BEEN FINE
JUST HAPPENED TO THINK ABOUT YOU

JUST HAPPENED TO THINK ABOUT YOU JUST HAPPENED TO THINK ABOUT YOU JUST HAPPENED TO THINK ABOUT YOU JUST HAPPENED TO THINK ABOUT YOU

The Girl I'm Seeing

Written By: Tom Donnohue

The Girl I’m Seeing

The girl I started seeing makes me feel all right
I think she really likes me I can see it in her eyes
Don’t know where we’ll end up I need a little help
One thing for sure is I don’t want nobody else

This time I’m gonna get things to work out right
Mistakes I made before I won’t repeat again
It’s been a long road for me to learn to get things right
Hard times have made me better I’m not afraid to try

Was told when it’s right you’ll know it
When it’s wrong it won’t feel right
I don’t have any doubts about it
With her I wanna spend my life

The girl I’m seeing makes me feel all right
I’ve been going out with her most every night
This girl is so different she has some character
Not only physical I’m enhanced when I’m with her

I know that I’ve been in this place before
But I feel this girl means a whole lot more
If we take it nice and easy and don’t move too fast
We’re gonna build a love that’s for sure gonna last

The Best Place

Written By: Tom Donnohue

The Best Place

When I drive by my old house
I remember all my past
I see my childhood friends
running through the yards really fast

When I think of growing up
It all happened in this place
Then I realize all the love I had
Will never be replaced

This was the best place in the world for me
Nowhere like it can never be
This was the best place in the world for me
I wish you could share my memory

When I walk through my old yard
I reflect upon my life
Then I fall to my own world
Overcome by my once distant thoughts

When I think of who I am
It all began here in this place
Then I realize all the love I had
Can never be replaced

This was the best place in the world for me
Nowhere like it can never be
This was the best place in the world for me
I wish you could share my memory
This was the best place in the world for me
I wish you could know what this means to me
This was the best place in the world for me
The best place in the world for me
