Album Notes:

Just Me represents Tom Shirra's first self produced solo album showcasing some of the styles of music and instruments he plays. Tom has written, performed, and recorded with many artists over the years. Many of the songs have been on a shelf waiting for an album to put them on, so we collected them to present here for you to enjoy. An eclectic collection of Jazz, Electronic, Sound scapes, and even Classical stylings are represented by this multi-instumentalist on this his first solo album.
