ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
“Biomess” is rooted in environmental activism with songs about coal, water privatization, food, biomass clear cuts and incineration. Since 2009, Tom has been a spokesperson for the Concerned Citizens of Franklin County as they have been fighting to stop a wood burning biomass plant in Greenfield, MA. Co-spokesperson, Janet Sinclair describes Tom's songs as heartfelt mstories about people trying to protect their homes. Tom takes on the unethical conduct of US government with “Lie Lie,” “Business As Usual,” and “Why Won’t Obama Debate” with his characteristic wit and humor. “El Camino Del Diablo” addresses the dangers of border crossings from Mexico to the US, while “Not A Safe Place” addresses the dangers of being Black in the US. The CD rounds out with an anecdote of credit card mania in WI and a tribute to the people of Lee, MA. Derrik Jordan on violin, bass, percussion. Kat Allen, back up vocals.
