Press Kit: Artist Information

Tom Smith

Personal

Age: 49
Residence: Ann Arbor, MI

Musical Genres

Unlimited. I have written in moods from dramatic to silly to romantic, in styles from operatic to hip-hop to techno to Klezmer. I haven't written thrash metal lately, but don't blink.

In concert, I perform acoustic folk-rock, mostly comedy, influenced by but in no way limited to science fiction, fantasy, movies, comic books, video games, politics, popular culture, classic rock 'n' roll, musicals, technology, food, and anything else in the vicinity. Think Weird Al Yankovic with a much bigger book collection, or Jonathan Coulton with different (and a lot more) jokes, or George Carlin with several more songs about Cthulhu. Parodies, shtick with the audience, improv, lots and lots of puns.
