When an artist comes from as much of an eclectic background as Tom Rhodes it makes their music hard to define. With one song you think you have him pegged as an alt-country artist, on the next you hear programmed drums and haunting melodies. On this album you can hear Tom's solitary introspection into love and himself, his yearnings to become more than what he is seen as, but still pick up a sense of his contentment with life as it is. Wise beyond his years, there will be more to come of Tom Rhodes and you can hear it on this (his first) CD. Here are some recent quotes about Tom Rhodes, and his self-titled CD... 'Some how with minimal instrumentation and effort Rhodes' sound is BIG. Rhodes' music elegantly balances on a tight rope of country, blues, and alternative without allowing the listener to pigeonhole his style. Several songs are clearly 'hit' material and with a new CD and a very strong band, as well as the ambition, Rhodes will likely find a home at a major or well-known Independent.' - Gabriel Levitt 'Tom Rhodes' songs are as haunting as Coldplay, as playful as Bjork, and his lyrics are as well crafted as Ryan Adams.' - Judith Schlieper Update - Thank you for the sales... I keep selling them out and you guys keep buying them... Don't stop I will make more!!!! Much Love.
