TOMAS JONES is well known in the Washington D.C. area and
beyond for work with the bands BEEFEATER and FIDELITY JONES. Various songwriters have
lent their talents and
styles to the intelligent lyrics of TOMAS. Heavy grooves,
great guitar sound, powerful vocals, hot drumming, rich bass playing...
Imagine Zappaesque musical content, with a serious lyrical message,
combined with influences of many musical styles: Latin, jazz,
worldbeat, rock, reggae... all sung by a singer with a raspy and
passionate vocal styling; Joe Cocker as a tenor, for example.
This is the first solo release for TOMAS and his first release
with CHANGING TONES.
TOMAS has directed that a portion of the proceeds will be donated
to The Rainforest Action Network to
aid in the many intiatives they take to save our tropical wilderness
including financial aid, educational programs, and community awareness.
