Been A Great Year Amidst . . .

It Certainly has been a great year amidst a lot of chaos, and yet flim flam, life travels on, I still love what I do, even though the challenges are many, the rewards are true. Finishing up a new record which I am extremely into, most likely titled “East Of Lincoln” – making new songs reflecting life as i see it and hear it is always exciting to express. Thanks for your continued support on my making records and playing shows, it means the world to me.

Another fun thing I’ve been doing this year is composing songs and singing and playing for this groovy kids show called Pete The Cat, there’s a year’s worth of episodes in the can and it starts with this New Years Special on Amazon TV ; Pete The Cat: A Groovy New Year Songs I have co written with the creator Swampy Marsh are now being sung by Elvis Costello, Dianna Krall, Dave Mathews, KT Tunstall and yours truly! You can also hear plenty of my noodling on various string things in these ditties.

Many Blessings for a fortuitous new Year and i’ll see y’all soon in 2018! Peace Love and Unite, T
I leave you with a photo of me and my daughter who joined me on tour this past summer in Europe, here we are in the hills of Verona: she is my pride and bella , Paz, T

Over the past 18 months, The Miracle Theater has sponsored, produced and streamed community-engaged performances and events in downtown Inglewood. These events have been a source of joy and pride for all those who have participated. The Miracle Theater Foundation will enable a quarterly showcase of locally-engaged, cultural programming as well as education programs for school aged children. As The Miracle Theater establishes itself with multiple performance artist residencies, The Foundation will support in-house visits by area music programs with artists and technicians to learn how professional entertainment is created, produced and exhibited. #InglewoodArts

New Single “Let My Love Open The Door” feat. Ben Harper out today!

Hello Summer, Hello Friends,New Single “Let My Love Open The Door” feat. Ben Harper out today! Get it here on itunes:

I’ve been doing this song at my shows since 2008 on my trusty ukulele. Pete Townshend wrote a beautiful poem of a song . . . a sound sentiment. Here it is with my bestie Ben Harper, featured on vocals and his awesome lap steel guitar playing! We’ve played it ‘live” in various corners of the world, from the Alps of Italy to the lower Manhattan subterranean. This year felt like the right time to lay it down in the studio. Also featured is Matt Johnson (Jeff Buckley, St Vincent) on drums, Rob Calder (Passenger, Angus and Julia Stone) on bass and Tom on everything else (including harmonium… “ohm”). Please give “Let My Love Open The Door” a spin and if you “like” or even “love” it, please share away – It will mean the world to me!! And you can even Buy on iTunes and own a snippet of history And Stream on iTunes And Share everywhere: #itunes #spotify #pandora #deezer #yourlocalradio #itunesradio #whateverelsethereis ?!! #VideoComingSoon #YouRockSoThereforeIRock HUGS, T Greetings from Lausanne, Switzerland #StayTuned #bastilleday #dontgoaway #Sunflowers
