There are very few songwriters these days who can move from pop ballad to R&B groove to folk narrative, from country shuffle to rock rave-up to gospel soul without stumbling. Tom Kimmel can. And very few writers whose songs are routinely covered by major recording stars record and perform the definitive versions those songs. Tom does.
Records featuring Tom's material have sold millions of copies around the world by Joe Cocker, Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt, John Farnham, Shawn Colvin, the Stray Cats and many others, but fans and critics agree, Tom remains his own best interpreter.
"Bones," the first of Tom's independent recordings, is an amazing live album of contemporary folk-pop-country by one of America's premiere singer-songwriters.
"Tom Kimmel's moody textured songwriting reaches into soulful realms that few Music Row pros enter."
