ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Everybody & Their Brother" is the first solo record by the popular Minneapolis singer/songwriter Tom Hipps. Tom has an extensive background in the music industry as a performer, writer and session vocalist. His songs appeared in the motion picture film "Staring At Headlights" and he has written music for Chicago's Second City Theater.

The album's updeat ditty "Tears In A Bottle" sets a bright and cheery mood, but the subject matter belies the musical tone by dealing with the sadness in the world. Tom uses a sort of musical irony to leave the listener curious and wanting to dig deeper to root out truth. Although this is Christian music, it is refreshingly honest. As with most of Tom's folk rock musings, he offers hope in the midst of the trials and storms we all must endure in life. "11th Day of May" is a power-pop nugget with a driving drum loop groove that almost hides the fact that the author is wondering "who is God?" and "why does he live so far away?" Yet still the hope of heaven seems to be a thread that winds through much of his material and perhaps binds his faith together.

Raw, honest, and emotionally presented, this is a fine first effort by a unique talent. Step inside..."Everybody & Their Brother" is here.

-Dave Coleman, Chrematizo Label Group
