Tomy One M
Influenced by Boston's 60/70's folk scene, Tomy Wright musically and professionally maintained 'a foot in both camps' over 30 years in the military, embracing the contemporary folk genre as his vehicle of expression. A world traveler and recent Marylander, Tomy penned what the Baltimore Sun called 'a loving ode to a slow road' supporting successful grassroots efforts to ensure Frederick County's gravel road legacy. He also achieved national airplay on NPR's Car Talk (show #0321) with his 'I'm Gonna Get Me a Car.' What's the Word on Tomy Wright? 'His music is also an expression of his insight into life and it's frustrations, the evitability of death and a search for love and meaning in existence. He voices his emotions with humor and longing.' Ann Keays, Stars and Stripes, 1979 'The sound is from the heart, the chords insistent, the words pouring from somewhere deep inside. The words: they're lyrical, poetic, flowing...the expression of a life's worth of living and loving and working and traveling.' Clare Lopez, HawkEye Vision, 2003 'The 'dapper troubadour'...displays a flashy stage presence tempered by sensitivity....his music crosses many boundaries including jazz, soul and gospel.'
