Live In Chicago - 2006

by Tom Vollman

Has quickly gained critical appeal for his rollicking live shows that marry swift rock tempos, punk ilk, and tight, power-pop hooks, nestling them in a tight package of memorable acoustic rock-n-roll evoking the waning spirits of Americana.

Album Notes
In honor of simplicity-the Queen of the Underground-and to avoid becoming tongue-tied and twisted in a haze of otherwise meaningless details, senseless inuendo, and baseless rumors, it's always best to stick to the facts and present them as close to reality as humanly possible. That said, here are the facts as we know, love and tell them...

In 2003, following the demise of the acclaimed, St. Louis-based Hart Crane, Tom Vollman relocated to Milwaukee, WI and founded Moonshine Sway in order to, "put the heart back in the fading sun and draw streams of guilt from your ex-lover's eyes."
The band quickly gained critical appeal for its rollicking live shows that marry swift rock tempos, punk ilk, and tight, power-pop hooks. Since then, Tom has been touring both with Moonshine Sway and as a solo act, gaining notoriety throughout the United States and Europe for his thoughtful lyrics and gravel drenched vocals that, all at once, seem to glean the finer elements of pop, punk and, nestling them in a tight package of memorable acoustic rock-n-roll evoking the waning spirits of Americana and the bygone ghosts of the once high lonesome.

With ambitions of ultimately being invited to join the Twilight Singers for at least number, Tom has shared a bill or two, dancing in supermarket aisles (while remaining both civil and dignified) with the likes of The Bottle Rockets, Richmond Fontaine, Drag the River, Hank III, Thad Cockrell, The Derailers, Kevin Kinney, Wayne Hancock, Chris Scruggs, The Hackensaw Boys, Two Cow Garage and a number of others he's too careless and/or cautious to
mention. Tom has performed across the U.S. and Europe, gracing the splinter shacks and cul-de-sacs of New York, Los Angeles, St. Louis, Chicago, Austin, Paris, Prague, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Minneapolis, just to name a few.

In a concerted effort to reduce static, white noise pollution on the airwaves, Tom's songs have been spinning in regular rotation on the likes of KDHX (St. Louis, MO); WOXY (Cincinnati, OH); WLUW (Chicago, IL); WLUW (Milwaukee, WI); KZSU (Stanford, CA); MOJO Dreams 105.5 (Antwerp, Belgium); Rootstime (The Netherlands); 104.3 Goldenflash (The Netherlands); WMSE
(Milwaukee, WI); KALX (Berkley, CA); and myriad others there between.
