καλό μήνα!


"Tom Brosseau, a North Dakota native, sings songs of lost love and poetic observation that shimmer like aural tintypes. His songwriting comes from such diverse influences as Nick Drake, Cole Porter, and Woody Guthrie. The ingredient in this mix that will flat out give you chills is Brosseau's voice, which sounds eerily like a high-lonesome reincarnation of Jeff Buckley.
Brosseau stands out from the populous independent song-slinger pack. With his high, limber and sometimes vibrato-colored voice, he seems to float between masculine and feminine vocal qualities. Brosseau's playing elicits a hushed reverence from admiring listeners blessed with the intimacy and emotional immediacy of his live performances. He is a cherished treasure in Los Angeles, and a fixture at the revered club Largo. He makes instant connections with audiences everywhere he plays, and has managed to sell out of his two self-released records.
Tom's effort, What I mean to say is Goodbye, is a record that touches on, in Brosseau's words, "abandoned buildings, new love, the praireland, being haunted, roaming around, and being thrilled and killed." It is the work of a master storyteller, who draws from such diverse influences as Marty Robbins, Led Zeppelin, Bob Dylan, Nick Drake, and Billie Holiday. The record has that quality of an intimate conversation at the next table that you just can't pull your ear away from. Brosseau's voice is center stage, supported by his delicate guitar playing and a cast of players that drop in and out of the recording providing subtle responses to Brosseau’s lyrics. He can be hauntingly moody and atmospheric, and avoids easy garden-variety verse-chorus-bridge song structures in his writing. Brosseau is on to something new by way of something old — deep, heartbreaking, and entirely worth hearing".
