TOM HAUCK

Telamor exists to bridge the gap between the classic rock of yesterday and the producer-driven pop of today. Right now - today - if you're a guitar player who makes music or if you're a fan of guitar music, you have three ways to go: country music (which has taken over classic rock), neo-folk, and metal. The alt rock that kids in the 1990s grew up with - STP, Nirvana, Alice in Chains, Korn, Pearl Jam - is gone. Vanished. Guitar-based pop-rock music has been wiped out by producer pop and "American Idol." If the Foo Fighters were a new band today, they'd have no market to sell into. Rock radio is gone, and the only way for a rock band to build a fan base is with relentless touring. For a new group, this is a daunting challenge. The mission of Telamor is to take guitar-based rock and re-invent it for the twenty-first century. It's a new sound made up of the scraps of musical history. Telamor is bilingual: it speaks the language of rock and the language of today's radio R&B and pop. The singing is passionate and blues-based, but the production is today's: big beats, heavy bottom, Latin percussion, dance tempos. If you're looking for a new course for pop rock music, Telamor is for you.

Telamor records at Bang A Song in Gloucester, MA USA. CD releases include "Valentine for the Future," "Straight Shots," "Telamor 3," and "Stoned!" Telamor is Tom Hauck (songs, instruments, producing) with Warren Babson (producing, mixing) and Tony Goddess (guardian angel).
