TOMMY LEPSON BAND "Putty and Paint"Powerhouse

ON "PUTTY AND PAINT," veteran singer and keyboardist Tommy Lepson sticks to what he does best. The result is as sturdy and welcome as a classic soul ballad. Certainly longtime fans won't be disappointed with this 14-track collection. Besides assembling a colorful mix of vintage and original tunes for his tight, R&B-bred quartet, Lepson sings with the full-throated power that has earned him a barrel of Wammie awards over the years. The familiar tunes cover a lot of ground. Chuck Willis's signature lament "I Feel So Bad," later recorded by Elvis Presley, inspires a freshly layered blend of blues and funk. Bob Dylan's "All Along the Watchtower" proves a potent showcase for Lepson's Hammond B-3 organ and John Bell's soaring guitar flights. And an anguished rendition of Nils Lofgren's "No Return" provides additional proof that Lepson's voice is as strong and expressive as ever. His songwriting also shines, by turns defiant ("Cold Hearted Woman"), sinuously evocative (the Santana-esque instrumental "Para Mi Hija") and cleverly barbed (the album's title track). Several notable Washington-based musicians lend a hand, too. Singer Mary Ann Redmond and Nighthawks blues harp player Mark Wenner are among the guests contributing color and depth to this thoroughly enjoyable studio session.

"Chesapeake Music Guide"

“Ive seen Tommy Lepson perform live many times and not once have I ever come away from a show where I didn’t see him and his band give 110% and play their asses off, see and hear for yourself, and I know for a fact you won’t be disappointed”
Michael Macey—Chesapeake Music Guide - Chesapeake Music Guide

"Nils Lofgren"

Tommy Lepson continues to be one of the great R&B singers around. Always a favorite of mine, this new CD is fabulous and I'm honored Tommy has sung the heck out of my song "No Return." Get this CD. You'll love it! I do. Well done Tommy! -- Nils Lofgren - Nils Lofgren

Outstanding instrumentals, stunning vocals, puts this group of seasoned musicians in a class by themselves, at the very top of the East Coast’s finest! Decades of experience in national and regional venues. Tommy has also toured the US, Canada and Europe.

“One of the best soul singers around, blue eyed or otherwise”
