Thomas Andrew Braden was born in the late 1960s and grew up on the west side of Denver. During the 1970s and 80s music became a big part of his life. In the fourth grade, he began playing the trombone, which continued through junior high school where he discovered a new passion - the drums. Discontinuing the trombone, it was full speed ahead at his new found love. He played for various cover bands through his teenage years. In his early twenties, it was time to set off in a third direction. He began singing lead vocals for the prominent Denver-based band 'Leviathan'. Having relatively good success, the band eventually fizzled out and members went their own ways. However during that time the decision was made to concentrate on singing and songwriting, utilizing the piano to write and record his own material. Please enjoy this special 'Songbook'.
