Tom Caufield

Tom Caufield is a great American songwriter, period, end of story. Lend him your ears." David Wild, Rolling Stone

Los Angeles - Tom Caufield is a contemplative acoustic guitarist with an uncommonly melodic style. Relaxing, organic, and offering identifiable story-like melodies that float in an effortless dream-stream, elements of folk, progressive, ambient, film score and pop come together in a unique, appealing mix.

"Music to slow the relentless pace of life" - Bruce Gall, Atmospheres/One World Music

Originally from Michigan, Caufield's first four albums all charted in the Top 20 of Zone Music Reporters 'Top 100 Radio Airplay Charts, with his debut, 'The Slow Dance of Time' making the Top 10. His music has been featured on John Diliberto's syndicated NPR program 'Echoes,' and is a regular feature on Music Exchange's streaming network 'Soundscapes,' in addition to receiving airplay on over 50 airwaves based stations nationwide.

"There is a level of emotional clarity in this music that is a rare find." - RJ Lannan, Zone Music Reporter

Caufield's aim is to convey emotion as directly as possible, yet leave lots space for listeners to find room for themselves inside the music. Eschewing busy arrangements and speedy passages, his compositions are minimalist, sparse and create an experience that is relaxing, yet involving. He's stated that he wants to take 'the acoustic guitar based album to places where it has not yet gone before.'

Offering a chill blend of creamy, retro yet modern music that will amplify the sound of your heart and soul, Caufield's sound is a 21st century take on contemplative instrumental music. Wooden and natural, peaceful and evocative, ancient yet modern (i.e.: timeless), accessible, yet hinting at life's complexity, Tom Caufield's music will transport you to a place you probably don't visit enough - your deeper self.
