For his second record, Tom has tapped again into the deep reserves of Berkshire region musical talent, including producer Todd Mack. The result: 10 new original tunes in the bluesy-folk, americana-rock vein, packaged as 'Crunch.' The songs on 'Crunch' date from 2003 back to as early as 1990--12 years of tunes about relationships, travel, work and play. The leadoff track, 'Rollin'' was featured on NPR's CarTalk twice during the spring of 2005! After six years of rehearsing and refining a sophomore effort, Tom threw out all his demo tapes and stepped into the Off The Beat-n-Track Studios in Southfield, MA. Mack listened to the acoustic versions and quickly visualized more of a rock 'n roll album. From there, the project named itself. Tom lives in Sheffield, MA with his wife Susan, kids Gretchen & Campbell, and keeps a guitar in every room of the house, just in case.
