Tom Brosseau, North Dakota-born, LA-based songwriter and singer, learned acoustic guitar
from his grandmother. He has toured Japan, Canada, Portugal, Iceland, Australia; performed
in bars, backyards, grand halls, subways, theaters, old folks homes; exchanged songs and
poetry with many talented folks, including Susan Orlean, Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, Patrick
Marber, and the late Sam Hinton.
Perfect Abandon is Tom Brosseau’s new album released on our friends’ Tin Angel Records label out of Coventry.
John Parish (PJ Harvey, Sparklehorse, Peggy Sue) produced Perfect Abandon in Bristol, England. Ali Chant recorded Tom and the band –
David Butler 2-piece drum kit, Joe Carvell double bass and Ben Reynolds Stratocaster guitar
– on a wooden theater stage, using only a single mic.
4 (of 5) stars: Financial Times, Perfect Abandon
“North Dakota troubadour brings stark, trembling beauty to folky acoustic pop. The world is
better for it.” MOJO Magazine – Danny Eccleston
“No artist possesses the same peculiar qualities as Brosseau…. The power of his performing
persona is so strong that he can pervade the whole room with his subjective existence,
making time-warped acolytes out of his audience.” – BBC.com
