Tom Brosseau

Grand Forks, North Dakota native Tom Brosseau grew up with music, listening to Marty Robbins, Bob Dylan, Pablo Casals, and Lead Belly, with a bluegrass-playing grandmother who taught him the guitar and a grandfather who had a band and a large record collection. After graduating from the University of North Dakota, Brosseau enrolled in music school but dropped out after only a few weeks, feeling that music theory classes took the fun out of playing. Instead, he started performing at open-mike nights around Grand Forks, and eventually moved to San Diego, California, where he was introduced to musician Gregory Page, who ended up recording and producing much of Brosseau's early material. Brosseau's first album, North Dakota, came out in 2002, followed by 2004's Late Night at Largo, recorded after-hours at a club where he frequently played in Los Angeles (his new hometown). The next year, Loveless Records issued What I Mean to Say Is Goodbye, followed in 2006 by Tom Brosseau, a re-release of older material. Continuing with that same idea in 2006, Brosseau, with help from the British Fat Cat label, also released Empty Houses Are Lonely, whose songs were pulled from three of his previous records. In 2007, he released Grand Forks, an album inspired by the flood that hit his hometown in 1997. That same year he released the spare Cavalier. Brosseau returned in 2009 with Posthumous Success, which featured more of his signature indie folk, this time fleshed out with various instruments for a more indie rock sound. The following year he collaborated with vocalist Angela Correa on their eponymous duo album Les Shelleys. In 2011, Brosseau appeared on several Jack White-produced 7" singles, including actor/singer John C. Reilly's "Gonna Lay Down My Old Guitar"/"Lonesome Yodel Blues #2" and his own "John & Tom," both released on White's Third Man Records. Brosseau next made his feature film debut in director Andrew van Baal's 2012 effort, Wonder Valley, and in 2014, he delivered his seventh studio album, Grass Punks.

Brosseau traveled to Bristol, England later that year in order to work with producer John Parish and engineer Ali Chant. Recording in mono with a small band, he emerged with ten songs that became the album Perfect Abandon; it was released in early 2015. ~ Marisa Brown, Rovi

This metal/punk/c r u s t guy can get into this!! I have a new genre on my list as well!! It is so liberating to be open-minded in all spectrums and evolve and educate yourself other genres as well and feed your spirits with a new attitude as well!!!

I attended Tom's concert for the release of Grand Forks while living in the city of the album's title. His voice is even more impressive live. He sang a song with no instrument accompanimen t and it haunts me still.
