Electronic Six Pack released 2016 is a meld of classical, jazz, rock, & synth music. Tom concentrates more on capturing the experience of what he hears deep in his sole whether it is considered popular music or not. Much of the music on this album was on his mind for years waiting to be let out, for Tom this album was a cleansing of the spirit that allowed him to move on.
Under the Rainbow is a song Tom wrote after visiting Gibsonton Florida years ago where the circus performers used to stay in the summer. Back when circus's used to travel in tents and railcar. It was called the Greatest Show on Earth.
Majestic Plains was conceived on a solo ride on the motorcycle from Florida to Sturgis SD in 2009, when I saw the national grassland parks for the first time. Something deep inside of me was moved. This is what I heard as I stood there in aw of the moment.
A Stroll Through Grand Central Tom tried to capture the times in his youth when he would ride the train to the gig in NY city, miss the last train and finding cool nooks to play and take care of business at hand, then returning to the grand floor to wait for the train.
Other Side of the Looking Glass is Tom stopping a moment in time like Alice in Wonderland. Tom was also trying to get the movie company to pick this song for the sequil to the latest version of the Alice in Wonderland movie.
