Exurb Review of Stronghold release party

Debbie Does Music?! Here is an excerpt of  Exurb Magazine’s review of the performance.

Tuesday nights are really not my ideal going out night, but Tuesday’s with Tom Freund at The Stronghold in Venice is tempting enough to get me out. Especially when it’s his new EP release party. Opening acts for Tom included Shane Alexander and Chris Joyner, two amazing singer/songwriters in their own right. But I was there for Tom, my favorite male vocalist, a guy I’ve been following for a couple years now, and who hit the jackpot with his new release, FIT TO SCREEN. Independent singer/songwriters are hard to find, if you are looking at the big box stores. But they are everywhere, when you look local, and you have the patience to find a gem. Tom is one of these treasures. His soulful voice, amazing talent, and group of friends he rocks with makes you feel good. The venue was awesome. The Stronghold, by day sells jeans on Abbot Kinney in Venice, by night, the upstairs loft turns into a listening room for great local performers.

Welcome to the new Digs!

Hello friends and fans! Happy to welcome you to a new website and way of life. Gone are the days of a never updated website!

I’m at SXSW now picking up photos, videos and many stories that will be posted here in the very near future along with a FULL STORE!

I know you’ve always wanted a Truly Mellow T-Shirt so I’m going to be putting that up here along with my full catalog in full CD quality download as well as MP3.

Where I have stock I’ll also have CD’s and maybe the Stronghold will hook up some jeans? You never know.

I hope you’ll check out the Tour Calendar – see you soon at a show!
