Album Notes
Thomas Rose, aka Toby Tate, has performed throughout Northeastern North Carolina and Southeastern Virginia in various bands and as a solo artist for the past several years. It wasn’t until he began playing as a soloist, in fact, that he started gaining recognition.

Thomas’ country-flavored rock song, ‘See You Tonight,’ off his last CD, ‘King for a Day,’ received airplay on the internet radio station New Artist Radio and reached number three on the charts, which is no mean feat.

That same song, plus a couple of others off ‘King for a Day,’ also ranked in the top ten among listeners on and

Thomas’ music has been described by record producer Frank Tedesco as ‘something like the Beatles meets Jim Croce,’ which is not far from the truth. His songs incorporate sounds from different genres including bluegrass, country, rock and pop and puts it all together in a spicy, bold mix of music unlike anything else out there.

Thomas not only sings and plays guitar, drums, mandolin, bass, piano and harmonica but he also writes all of his own music and is a seasoned recording engineer. Top that off with his graphic design background and you have a modern, self-contained performer who is able to write, perform, engineer, produce and design his own projects from beginning to end.

With the advent of the internet and retail outlets like, Thomas, along with thousands of other musicians, has had the opportunity to make available his music to fans worldwide in places like Japan and Germany where people are starved for original, American rock music.

Thomas’ latest project, ‘Kitty,’ is a ten song wonder that tested his abilities as a producer/performer and forced him to reach beyond even what he believed himself capable of, stretching his songwriting, performing and engineering skills to the max and resulting in a sound that is eclectic yet focused. You will hear the influences of his favorite bands such as Led Zeppelin, Creedence Clearwater Revival, R.E.M., and the Beatles.

This project is the result of years of performing live and is the one of which he is most proud. About this CD, Thomas said, “I made the CD I wanted to make, not just the one I thought people would want to hear.”

As it is, people will definitely want to hear it.

‘Kitty’ is full of guitars, mandolins, pianos and vocal harmonies featuring funky rhythms and melodic hooks with lyrics about love, loss and longing. It’s reminiscent of acoustic Zeppelin, R.E.M., Pure Prairie League, and Creedence.

Thomas thinks you will agree – ‘Kitty’ is happy and sometimes melancholy, but always satisfying.

New Artist Radio - Bill Messick

...each song is a colorful blend for a unique and refreshing sound.
Thomas Rose has a soft fresh multi-genre music that borderlines a pop rock type sound. The music is tight and very well constructed, each song is a colorful blend for a unique and refreshing sound. I did hear some country to this music but it is overshadowed by the pop rock sound. The CD case is good quality and you just have to love the peace loving hippie cat on the front.

Songs that caught my attention were Too High a Mountain, this is a nice flowing tune that brought back hints of the 80's for me. Miss You was another song I liked, this one was faster and had some memorable lyrics to it.

It is nearing the middle of fall here so the trees are alive with color, the music seemed to enhance the mood. Fall Guy was one of these songs that made things seem like they had more going on. Circling was another song I liked, the music is very easy to shove in your ears, crisp lyrics and soft rock sounds.

A solid groove keeps this track in motion constantly.
(A review of the song 'Miss You' from the CD 'Kitty')
A solid groove keeps this track in motion constantly. I like the instrumental additions that come in throughout the song’s build. It creates a sonic rise in the arrangement that brings lots of bounce and creates good challenges for listeners. The arrangement additions allow for very little predictability within a simple melody line. All the elements are firmly in place. Musical and lyrical hooks come through clearly and distinctly. The sectional separation is given lots of support via the diverse instrumentation. A very nice pop song that has its feet in Americana, Rock with classic sensibilities and Indie Rock. Nice work, Toby! (Toby is the alter ego of Thomas Rose).
