Album Notes
AMG EXPERT REVIEW: Tom Freund is indeed one of the great singer-songwriters of the 1990's.
He emerged in 1998 with an excellent debut album on Red Ant Records, North American Long Weekend.
That album presented his awesome talent to the world with clarity and a subtle vision.

Freund's songs are loaded with a pragmatic vision and are sung in a distinct Tom Waits-influenced growl.
Imitation, however, is not what Freund is about.
This, his follow-up CD on his own label gives us a further and even more mature example of his vision.

"Seat On A Train" and "Bombshell" are fantastic tracks, but Freund saves the best for last with "Sympatico", where he constructs a unique world, defines it, and then burns it to the ground.
Truly unique and absolutely brilliant.
- Matthew Greenwald

"Along with Lucinda Williams, Freund is the best singer/ songwriter operating today."
- Graham Parker

"Addictive, soul-searching listening"

"A really strong new CD ... a kind of alternative country feel"
- Weekend Edition

The best opening act I have ever been to
I went to the Ben Harper concert in Myrtle Beach, SC in July as a birthday
present from my sister as Ben Harper has been my favorite artist for the last
8 years, and I wasnt sure what to expect from the opening act. I want to say
that Tom Freund was absolutely amazing. The best opening act I have ever been
to. As I stood listening to Tom play I can't count how many people were
asking me who that was playing on stage and how many people were writing Tom's
name down on whatever they had. I have never seen that kind of reaction from
an opening act. The entire concert was so alive and filled with this
electricity. Simply Amazing. Tom needs to start selling on the East Coast
and get his albums on the radio over here more. I can promise that he will
sell alot of albums if he sticks with Ben Harper.

I have been listening to Tom's studio albums for a couple weeks now and
haven't taken them out of my cd player yet. I was wondering though, what
songs did Tom play at the Myrtle Beach concert and if he had any live versions
of them out there. If you could let me know I would appreciate it.

Thanks for everything and keep playing,
Vince Stuber

Sympatico is the kind of music one would expect from a true shaman.
Also Music Connection awards Tom 8 Stars:
"Being a singer/songwriter seems to be the hip thing these days, nevertheless, that's exactly what Tom Freund is. Hip and cool aside, Freund is actually one hell of a singer/songwriter. After all, Graham Parker is
among his loyal followers. Sympatico is the kind of music one would expect from a true shaman. "

"Listening to Sympatico, Tom Freund's second solo release, I find myself just as impressed as I was after hearing North American Long Weekend, his solo debut. His songs fill me with an interesting mixture of yearning and melancholy that is somehow thoroughly uplifting at the same time. I get shivers down the spine on almost every tune. Along with Lucinda Williams, Freund is the best singer/songwriter operating today." --Graham Parker
