The best kept secret in music


"Blues Access Magazine"

"His style should gain him wide recognition." - Lay It On You CD Review, 2001

"Blues Revue Magazine"

"Feldmann deserves all the publicity he can get: He's the real deal, a soulful original who uses country blues to get at his own personal demons, which lie somewhere between Gram Parsons' beautiful death angels and Uncle Tupelo's lurching workingman's blues."
- Robert Fontenot
- Side Show Revival CD Review, 2007

"Dirty Linen Magazine"

"Feldmann has opted for the lonely, less glamorous road of solo acoustic blues, and for this he is to be lauded." - Drunk Man's Dream CD Review, 2002

"Time Off Magazine"

"Driven To My Knees draws power from its simplistic approach, which in turn adds gravitas to the already evocative lyrics. This is a beautiful and inspiring album."
- Time Off Magazine, Australia - Driven To My Knees CD Review, 2006

"Blues and Co. Magazine"

"Tom Feldmann and his throw-back trio breathe fresh air into the conventions of early 20th-century, folk-spiritual music. Carving out new sonic territory between the religious blues sounds of Blind Willie Johnson or Son House and Old-Time predecessors like the Reverend J.M. Gates, Feldmann's sound is honest, direct and intimate. Criticism is hard to come by on a project as clearly thought-out and well presented as this one."
- Paul Linden, France - Side Show Revival CD Review, 2007

"Richie Havens"

"Very Talented" - 2002

"Blues In Britain Magazine"

Feldmann has a terrific voice, somewhat reminiscent of Chris Smither, and it becomes quickly apparent on the opening brace of tracks ("Converted" and "Jesus") that he is a pretty mean fingerpicker too. A thoroughly entertaining 38 minutes. 8 out of 10 stars."
- Gordon Baxter, UK - Side Show Revival CD Review, 2007

"Infuze Magazine"

“A great musical work from beginning to end.” - Driven To My Knees CD Review, 2006

Feeling a bit camera shy


Carrying on in the raucous gospel twang tradition of The Louvin Brothers, Gram Parsons, and Uncle Tupelo, The Get-Rites (Tom Feldmann on vocals and infamous resonator guitar, long-time Ben Weaver/Jack Norton side-man Paul Liebenow on upright bass, and drummer Jed Staack) present a fresh, inspirational batch of country-blues-tinged material that melds, molds, and mixes all of those various influences with their own inimitable flair for lyrical intelligence, musical complexity, and soulful experimentation.

Over the past ten years, Tom Feldmann has been touring both solo and fronting The Get-Rites, covering the continental U.S. and Canada sharing stages with BR5-49, David Lindley, b****** Sons Of Johnny Cash, the Lee Boys, Kraig Johnson (Run Westy Run, The Jayhawks, Golden Smog), Dan Bern, Randy Stonehill, "Catfish" Keith, John Munson (Semisonic), Steve James, and many others.
