Album Notes
There are very few songwriters these days who can move from pop ballad to R&B groove to folk narrative, from country shuffle to rock rave-up to gospel soul without stumbling. Tom Kimmel can. And very few writers whose songs are routinely covered by major recording stars record and perform the definitive versions those songs. Tom does.

Records featuring Tom's material have sold millions of copies around the world by Joe Cocker, Johnny Cash, Linda Ronstadt, John Farnham, Shawn Colvin, the Stray Cats and many others, but fans and critics agree, Tom remains his own best interpreter.

"Bones," the first of Tom's independent recordings, is an amazing live album of contemporary folk-pop-country by one of America's premiere singer-songwriters.

"Tom Kimmel's moody textured songwriting reaches into soulful realms that few Music Row pros enter."
--Nashville Scene

bones + never saw blue
Bought these two after I heard you at "The Blue Boat" in Malmoe a couple of weeks ago. Listening to both of them brought that evening back. And it was one hell of an evening and these are realy good albums. Will probably persue collecting (that is if the fonding can be raised). And, yes, keep up the good work and, if possible, came back to these parts of the world. I will be a great audience of (hopefully not) one.


good medicine for the soul
This cd is becoming a favorite, I love the lyrics - so honest, and the melodies-I keep singing these songs to myself all day , so a great buy!


Highly recommended
I picked up this CD after hearing Tom sing "Poetic Justice" at Ballad Tree at the Kerrville Folk Festival. With my friend Bill Nash singing harmony vocals it was one of my favorite moments of my five days at the festival. I had heard The Sherpas, but never any of Tom's solo work. His lyrics and vocals are deeply moving--the guitar work beautiful. I can't recommend this CD enough.

Tom Dews

Powerful writing, deft guitar work, and distinctive, evocative vocals.
Here are beautiful, melodic songs accompanied by deft guitar work and just right keyboards and background vocals, delivered by a voice with distinctive timbre (and gutsy rasp when needed). The masterful songwriting here covers a broad range of emotion, and Kimmel's performance gives each tune a solid authenticity. A great live album.
